Reading the news today, I see the 'Human Rights Activists' banging on about the infringement of such, regarding the hanging of Saddam Hussein.
Does anyone automatically have the right to live?
Or should that be earned by...
A) Should they wish to go it alone, the individual's determination to survive?
B) Should they wish to be part of a society, the individual's determination to survive, contribution to that society as best they can and a lack of desire to keep killing members of it (because that one really pisses people off!)?
And as for 'inhumane', what does that mean?
A) According to the HRA, anything that they find distasteful.
B) In real life, anything outside the purview of human imagination when it comes to that fundamental axiom, 'self preservation'. Or, in other words, not a bloody lot!
Maybe the expression would be more accurately presented as 'insocietous' and let's leave 'inhumane' for creatures that aren't actually human?
I'd be interested in what people have to say about that.
Apologies to my small but growing army of bum chums out there, will get back to the more serious issues of willies (pun intended) and botties in the next post!
