What do you think of Chinese human rights?

 

HRACT1

I would describe them as I would for the United Kingdom.

They have become the property of our Governments who have decided without the consent of the people that they can be removed at the will of the Government.

I would also state that China’s Human Rights are incrementally improving whilst those of the United Kingdom’s are regressing.

Never in the history of the United Kingdom has a Government been so ignorant of the will of the people and so selfish of its own political ambition.

China may not have the fine words so often spoken by Theresa May when she lectures the World about Human Rights but China at least does not pretend to be something it is not.

The photo is of the children of Yemen. Many of whom have died from bombs supplied by a United Kingdom Government who have ignored their right to life.

 

Are you a bad person? Why aren’t you bad exactly now?

This is my answer to this Quora Question.

I ask myself what does it take to be a bad person? Greed, selfishness, apathy? because it would appear many Government Leaders have those attributes.

 

I could not kill innocent men women and children. They do by war and economic mismanagement.

I am not a bad person because if I was a Prime Minister my Government would not allow innocent men women and children to die in Yemen by supplying arms to cause them to die in that way.

I would not let my AirForce bomb innocent civilians in Afghanistan. Over 1.5 million civilians and soldiers have died in conflict in Afghanistan since 1979.

My Government tells the children of the U.K to be good and moral. Yet it supplies arms that kill children.

I am not bad exactly now because I unlike my Government have a Principle. One that does not aid in the killing of children.
