Who is David Cook you might ask. He is another fool embracing Marxism, despite its utter failure to result in anything positive in its’ pathetic history.
It’s right there on the list. Just before food and clothing. Right after the section on people being able to vote and participate in government.
“Everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests.”
It’s Article 23 on the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. The 30-article document was written after the horrors of World War II (one of its primary authors was Eleanor Roosevelt) and expresses an exalted vision of what’s possible for humans here on earth.
It lists the fundamental rights we should have — any and all of us — simply by virtue of being alive.
Some things you have to earn: a ski trip to the Alps, a second home, a third set of golf clubs. Yet other things are as attached to us as our own skin. Just by being born, we have the right to worship freely or own property or have a family.
We have the right to be free from unwarranted arrest or torture or slavery.
And the right to form a union.
Yep, there you go, unions are now a natural right, what do you want to bet Cook also would list health care as a”right”. We can see, from his past columns, he hates true natural rights, like self-defense Reading over his columns, I do not think Cook is a bad guy, some of his stuff I agree with but he is misguided on what “rights” really are, but what else can we expect from a guy with a degree in Peace and Justice Studies?
