Melanie Phillips on Human Rights

Melanie Phillips on what she calls the "culture of human wrongs"....human rights no longer come from a belief in the inherent dignity of the human person but rather in making sure that every minority group has their whims catered for, regardless of how nonsensical or trivial they are - once they start using rights-language they can remain inside the bubble of comfrotable political correctness, immune from any form of reality....

" human rights culture means that anyone who can't read or write can break the law, and truth is anything you want it to mean. As a demonstration of my contention that the rights culture was destroying morality, justice and truth this hardly have been clearer"
