Basic Human Rights

Two very different definitions:

Freedom
/ˈfriːdəm/
‘The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.’

Coercion
/kəʊˈəːʃ(ə)n/
‘The practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.’

(Dictionary.com, 2021).

Now apply these basic definitions to Sydney and Melbourne, and growing numbers of nations around the world such as the USA, France, Italy, Germany, England, and so forth. What are the people of these cities and nations experiencing and hearing through their governments and through the voices of their media concerning vaccines, economies, and social “freedoms”? Are governments and their media currently disseminating information about ‘freedom’ or ‘coercion’? Or has one word been tarnished by the other? When wrong is seen as right and right is seen as wrong, it becomes very difficult to work out which way is up anymore.

Take a look at the video below and ask yourself if the basic human rights of humanity are in any way in tact in the above-mentioned places. In some areas they will be and in other areas not so.

This message is not here to cause you to feel like I’m patronising you. If you feel that way, that’s your choice to feel that way. Again, I’m here to pose some questions and to point to a real issue that is threatening personal liberty right this very minute.

The video below is from the official declaration of human rights—rights that we are born with and that under no circumstance should we have to earn.

I can’t tell people what to think, but I can sure provide people with tools that help them ‘to’ think.

Please watch.
