When Human Rights Overrides Majority Rule Dictatorship Follows

by Ian R Thorpe Attempts to reform human rights law are being frustrated by liberal bureaucrats and political activist lawyers in national government, the European UInion (E U) and the United Nations as a means of attacking national sovereignty and democracy ... Contact us:

Human Rights Dictatorship - Part 1

by Ian R Thorpe

In the wake of Obama's great foreign policy triumph, a cliche laden speech in Cairo in which he promised to work with terrorist groups to bring western style 'liberal democracy' to countries ruled since the colonial powers quit by absolutist tyrannies, the countries where the so called Arab Spring uprisings suicceeded in ousting tyrants are further away from democracy than ever. Islamist fanatics have grabed power in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt and are preparing to by the sharia, their version of the law of God. They reject what they call 'man-made laws' the laws by which most nations live. For the same reason, Islamists reject democracy. It is a sham, they say, and an offence against God, the supreme ruler.

In the 'enlightened' west the unconstrained powers of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and the increasing focus of the United States Supreme Court on human rights are the secular equivalent. Progressives, those obsessive compulsive sociopaths who love to parade their assuptions of moral superiority think that the European Convention on Human Rights and the Strasbourg court which enforces it are sacred. They believe these rights should be forced upon people everywhere, regardless of how anyone votes, regardless of how the diverse peoples of the world have evolved socially. Human rights are their sharia.

In Iran, the Guardian Council of senior clergy makes the final decision about whether anything passed by the parliament is compatible with Islamic law. In Europe, the ECHR has the same absolute authority over the decisions of all the member parliaments, including our own. I am not sure how far the powers of the U.S. Supreme Court reach. While the punishments haded out by these allegedly liberal and democratic bodies do not (yet) involve stoning or the amputation of body parts, the principle is the same: "We", says the priesthood of human rights lawyers, "are in sole possession of the truth: no other power may stand against us."

Before becoming Prime Minister, David Cameron was suspicious of the human rights theocrats. The moment he stepped into his official residence however power started to corrupt him. He had promised to set up a commission on a British Bill of Rights,he idea being to bring home human rights in Britain and place them under the supervision of british courts and British government. He soon started to back of that position in order to earn a pat on the head from other EU leaders and UN bureaucrats. Now we have a situation in which the ECHR can rule that Britain must give prisoners the vote. No major political party and no large section of public opinion agrees. The British Parliament voted overwhelmingly against this measure. Yet, under our present relationship with Europe with which the traitor Blair saddled us, there is absolutely nothing that our elected representatives can do about it. In fact because the ECHR is controlled by left wing elitists we find those convicted of and imprisoned for serious crimes have more "rights" than hard working, law abiding citizens.

This is the inevitable result of allowing bureaucracy to usurp democracy. I have seen many progressives talking about when democracy fails (as in the votes in several US states to prohibit same sex marriage) the central government must "step in and do what is right." But who decided what is right? The unelected bureaucrats? We could call such thinking the usurpation of parliamentary sovereignty. Nobody wants to remove human rights from our law and as believers in democracy we should welcome the fact that the courts will sometimes reach decisions that challenge the will of the majority in their afforts to protect minority interests. Having said that however elected legislators as representatives of the people must have some power of democratic override. In Britain's principlal Court of Justice, the Old Bailey, there words are inscribed above the portal: "The welfare of the people is the paramount law." GEDDIT progressives, the people; not 'some of the people. It does not say "The welfare of the blacks, hispanics, crims, peedos, trd burglars, rug munchers, retards, dopeheads, crackheads and dickheads in the paramount law (they'd need bigger doors) but the people as in We The People. And who can better determine what consitutes the welfare of the people than the majority of the people. Not the ten per cent of elitist, morally superior self styled progressives but all the people. Because when human rights law starts to curtail the rights of some in order to extend the rights of others we are no longer talking about democracy but tyranny. The tyrannophiliac left may delude themselves that utopia could be gained under a benign, Marxist totalitarian global government but that obly shows they are less well informed than the so called low information voters they so despise. It does not really take much reading to find out what life was and is like under Stalin and Brezhnev, Mao Tse Tung, Erich Honeker, Fidel Castro, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, Mobutu, Ceaucescu, and almost every other Marxist leader anywhere. Even the most benign, like Tito in Yougoslavia, were not exactly pussycats. RELATED POSTS:

Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics.

War by Media and the Triumph of Propaganda

Why has so much journalism succumbed to propaganda? Why are censorship and distortion standard practice? Why is the BBC so often a mouthpiece of rapacious power? Why do the New York Times and the Washington Post deceive their readers? Why are young journalists not taught to understand media agendas and to challenge the high claims and low purpose of fake objectivity? And why are they not taught that the essence of so much of what’s called the mainstream media is not information, but power?

British Democracy In Terminal Decline - Voting Is Redundant And Civil Liberties Are So Last Year
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Human Rights - A Straitjacket On Liberty.
We are in a fight to retain our right to free speech in the face of an onslaught of politically correct tyranny. While a speech Barack Obama made in Cairo is celebrated even though it brought back the spectre of medieval Sharia law to secular Muslims, the word liberal is hajacked by authoritarians who ride the political bandwagon and offer doublespeak, ambiguity and weasel words..

I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.Sunday morning is a lazy time for those who have no young children and no interest in religion. Every Sunday, in a slot that was for years occupied by a Christian religious program Mrs. T and I like to watch the wider discussion show that now fills that hour as we consume a leisurely breakfast. One thing that strikes me in these discussions is that the secular view is often represented by a "scientist" who labours under the misapprehension that all who participate in worship or do not subscribe to Marxist thinking are creationists.

Trade deals have traditionally been about lowering particular tariffs for imports and exports of goods from one country to another.
