Is it possible for a person to forfeit their human rights? If so how, if not why not?

My answer to Is it possible for a person to forfeit their human rights? If so how, if not why not?

Answer by Desmond Last:

No it is not. The International Convention of Human Rights states in Article 30

“Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein”.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

As the Universal Convention of Human Rights is the foundation document for all Nations Human Rights Laws it is therefore not possible to be exempt from Humans Rights Laws – and why would you want to be exempt?

This would mean you would want to be murdered.

It is also not a reason to state you were just doing as you were told. That was determined in the Nuremberg Trials at the end of World War Two.
