Human rights are moral principles that set out certain standards of human behaviour, and are regularly protected as legal rights in national and international law.
- They are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.”
- Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). – Wikipedia
Towards the bottom of Wikipedia's article, are listed (7) 'Substantive Rights', defined as:
- “Substantive rights are basic human rights possessed by people in an ordered society and includes rights granted by natural law as well as the substantive law.”
- “Substantive rights involve a right to the substance of being human (life, liberty, happiness)…”
Main article: Right to life
- Every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life.
—Article 6.1 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
The right to life is the essential right that a human being has the right not to be killed by another human being.
- The concept of a right to life is central to debates on the issues of abortion, capital punishment, euthanasia, self defense and war.
- According to many human rights activists, the death penalty violates this right.
- The United Nations has called on states retaining the death penalty to establish a moratorium on capital punishment with a view to its abolition.
- States which do not do so face considerable moral and political pressure.
Main article: Torture
Throughout history, torture has been used as a method of political re-education, interrogation, punishment, and coercion.
- In addition to state-sponsored torture, individuals or groups may be motivated to inflict torture on others for similar reasons to those of a state;
- However, the motive for torture can also be for the sadistic gratification of the torturer, as in the Moors murders.
Torture is prohibited under international law and the domestic laws of most countries in the 21st century.
- It is considered to be a violation of human rights, and is declared to be unacceptable by Article 5 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
- Signatories of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and the Additional Protocols I and II of 8 June 1977 officially agree not to torture captured persons in armed conflicts, whether international or internal.
- Torture is also prohibited by the United Nations Convention Against Torture, which has been ratified by 155 countries.
National and international legal prohibitions on torture derive from a consensus that torture and similar ill-treatment are immoral, as well as impractical.
- Despite these international conventions, organizations that monitor abuses of human rights (e.g. Amnesty International, the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims) report widespread use condoned by states in many regions of the world.
- Amnesty International estimates that at least 81 world governments currently practice torture, some of them openly.
Main article: Slavery
Freedom from slavery is internationally recognized as a human right. Article 4 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:
- No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
Despite this, the number of slaves today is higher than at any point in history, remaining as high as 12 million to 27 million.
- Most are debt slaves, largely in South Asia, who are under debt bondage incurred by lenders, sometimes even for generations.
- Human trafficking is primarily for prostituting women and children into sex industries.
Groups such as the American Anti-Slavery Group, Anti-Slavery International, Free the Slaves, the Anti-Slavery Society, and the Norwegian Anti-Slavery Society continue to campaign to rid the world of slavery.
Main article: Right to a fair trial
- Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.
The right to a fair trial has been defined in numerous regional and international human rights instruments.
- It is one of the most extensive human rights and all international human rights instruments enshrine it in more than one article.
- The right to a fair trial is one of the most litigated human rights and substantial case law has been established on the interpretation of this human right.
Despite variations in wording and placement of the various fair trial rights, international human rights instrument define the right to a fair trial in broadly the same terms. The aim of the right is to ensure the proper administration of justice.
As a minimum the right to fair trial includes the following fair trial rights in civil and criminal proceedings:
- The right to be heard by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal
- The right to a public hearing
- The right to be heard within a reasonable time
- The right to counsel
- The right to interpretation
Main article: Freedom of speech
Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.
In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on libel, slander, obscenity, incitement to commit a crime, etc.
The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 19 of the ICCPR states that "[e]veryone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference" and "everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice".
Main articles: Freedom of thought, Conscience and Freedom of religion
- Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
—Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
Freedom of thought, conscience and religion are closely related rights that protect the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to think and freely hold conscientious beliefs and to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance;
- The concept is generally recognized also to include the freedom to change religion or not to follow any religion.
- The freedom to leave or discontinue membership in a religion or religious group — in religious terms called "apostasy" — is also a fundamental part of religious freedom, covered by Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Human rights groups such as Amnesty International organises campaigns to protect those arrested and or incarcerated as a prisoner of conscience because of their conscientious beliefs, particularly concerning intellectual, political and artistic freedom of expression and association.
- In legislation, a conscience clause is a provision in a statute that excuses a health professional from complying with the law (for example legalising surgical or pharmaceutical abortion) if it is incompatible with religious or conscientious beliefs.
Main article: Freedom of movement
Freedom of movement asserts that a citizen of a state in which that citizen is present has the liberty to travel, reside in, and/or work in any part of the state where one pleases within the limits of respect for the liberty and rights of others, and to leave that state and return at any time.

THE GREATEST SLAVERY – Sanctioned by the UN
“Does a child not have as much right to privacy and freedom from parental conditioning [the greatest slavery] as the parents expect for themselves?” - Osho, the book of children, p. 35
Well, no, according to Wikipedia, “Reproductive rights were first established as a subset of human rights at the United Nations 1968 International Conference on Human Rights.”
- “Reproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children…”
One way to define life rigorously is in terms of specific, enumerated traits:
■ Feeding and metabolism
■ Motility (physical movement)
■ Responsiveness to environmental stimuli
■ Reproduction with adaptation.
Reproduction is probably the most frequently cited
"essential" defining characteristic of living systems.20, 521
– Robert Freitas, Xenology, chapter 6.2.1
Procreation [Reproduction with adaptation] is a:
■ Primary specification of life.
■ Biological imperative developed over billions of years.
■ Instinctual-level program embedded within any/all living organism.
■ Human Right – recognized by the United Nations (UN).
That is a formidable combination of denying forces for any so-called 'Children's Liberation Movement'.
What are the rights of an embryo/fetus/infant baby?
Does it not have the right to optimal conditions before, during and after birth?
- For example, does an embryo/fetus have the right to be gestated within a mother that does not drink alcohol, or use heroin?
- “Unlike other animals, human progeny are neotonic, taking a long time to mature. When we are born, the brain is not yet developed as an organ. It takes many years to ripen a brain. While it accounts for the exceptional scope of learning and innovation of our species, this neotonic handicap makes offspring excessively dependent upon what is inculcated in them by adults.
- “The sight of children cramped in a madrasa, an Islamic kindergarten, nodding like zombies and repeating the Koran eight hours a day is only one example (an obviously flagrant one) of how children are programmed to believe. Such practices, which exist in many forms in diverse cultures and religions, ought to be regarded as child abuse.” - John Lamb Lash, How Metahistory Works
Fight for the right of infants, children, and adolescents
- “There are those who struggle for human rights, for better working conditions and to abolish the ultimate expression of humanity’s underlying hate for life – war – what Gurdjieff, in Beelzebub’s Tales calls the most terrible of all the horrors which can possibly exist in the whole of the universe.
- “But where are those who fight for the right of infants, children, and adolescents to fully experience the love they feel in their bodies? Do we not not care about how we manipulate lovely children into becoming as hard as ourselves as we transmit “the consequences of the organ Kundabuffer” from generation to generation?”
– Brahinsky, Sexuality and the Evolution of Consciousness, pps. 127-8
Uproot the Old?
Every child is being enveloped:
■ By the parents, by the society, by the teachers,
by the priests, by all the vested interests.
■ Enveloped in many layers of conditioning.
He is given a certain religious ideology; it is not
■ And whenever somebody is forced with no choice
of his own you are crippling the person,
you are destroying his intelligence.
■ You are not giving him a chance to choose,
■ You are not allowing him to function intelligently
■ You are managing it in such a way that he will
function only mechanically.
– Osho, the book of children, chapter 3
Conditioning From: the book of children, chapter 3
The parents are [not] aware:
■ That they are exploiting the child,
■ That they are imposing a slavery on the child,
■ That they are destroying the child,
■ That they are making him stupid, unintelligent,
■ That their whole effort of conditioning the child as a Hindu,
as a Mohammedan, as a Christian, as a Buddhist, is inhuman.
They are not aware of it, but that does not make any difference as far as the facts are concerned.
■ The child is being conditioned by the parents in ugly ways,
■ And of course the child is helpless: he depends on the parents.
■ He cannot rebel, he cannot escape, he cannot protect himself.
■ He is absolutely vulnerable; hence he can be easily exploited.
Parental conditioning is the greatest slavery in the world.
■ It has to be completely uprooted, only then will man be able for the first time to be really free, truly free,
authentically free, because the child is the father of the man.
■ If the child is brought up in a wrong way then the whole of humanity goes wrong.
■ The child is the seed: if the seed itself is poisoned and corrupted by well-intentioned people, well-wishing people,
then there is no hope for a free human individual.
What you think you have is not individuality, it is only personality.
Society is your parents' writ large.
■ Your parents were nothing but agents
of this society.
It is all a conspiracy:
■ The parents,
■ The teachers,
■ The policeman,
■ The magistrate,
■ The president — they are all together.
It is all a conspiracy:
■ They are all holding the future of all children.
– Osho, the book of children, chapter 3
■ It is something cultivated in you, in your nature, by your parents,
the society, the priest, the politician, the educators.
■ The educator, from the kindergarten to the university, is in the service
of the vested interests, of the establishment.
■ His whole purpose is to destroy every child in such a way, to cripple
every child in such a way that he adjusts to the established society.
■ There is a fear. The fear is that if the child is left unconditioned from
the very beginning he will be so intelligent, he will be so alert, aware,
that his whole lifestyle will be of rebellion.
■ Nobody wants rebels; everybody wants obedient people.
Parents love the obedient child.
■ And remember, the obedient child is almost always the most stupid child.
■ The rebellious child is the intelligent one, but he is not respected or loved.
■ The teachers don't love him, the society does not give him respect; he is condemned.
■ Either he has to compromise with the society or he has to live in a kind of self-guilt.
■ Naturally, he feels that he has not been good to his parents, he has not made them happy.
“The child is being conditioned by the parents…
- And of course the child is helpless: he depends on the parents.
- He cannot rebel, he cannot escape, he cannot protect himself.

“The child is the father of the man.
- If the child is brought up in a wrong way then the whole of humanity goes wrong.
- The child is the seed: if the seed itself is poisoned and corrupted by well-intentioned people, well-wishing people, then there is no hope for a free human individual.”
(All quotes above from - Osho, the book of children, pps. 35-6)
Not Fighting the old, but Building the New
Before anything can change, the problem needs to be recognized.
The Gaian Army would be good start at undoing unconscious procreation.
■ Increase the consciousness and being of would-be slaveholders.
■ Decrease (through education, alternate opportunities, better life skills, etc.)
the number of would-be slaveholders.
“The failure to recognize a pattern of activity from the repulsive new Egyptian government and their role in Gaza to the bizarre comedy act in Mosul to the Tel Aviv based oligarchs now ruling Ukraine, a failure by the press, by all the press, by governments certainly, is astounding.
“We are very much watching the SSG, Secret Shadow Government, fighting the beginnings of a world war, one fought with terrorism, ethnic cleansing and psychological warfare. Though elections are openly stolen in the United States, we see millions of Americans basking in race hatred, class envy and simple idiocy, supporting the SSG with every fibre of their being.
The organ’s of the SSG, the Jamestown Foundation, Rand Corporation, Heritage Foundation, US Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Manufacturers, the National Rifle Association, the Potomac Institute, PJ Media, AIPAC, the ACL, the SPLC, the American Legion, the American Enterprise Institute and so many others are openly working to enslave this country.
“There is overwhelming evidence that several operate biological and chemical weapons facilities, are involved in bizarre genetic projects in North Korea, are responsible for Benghazi, Sandy Hook, the Breveik killings in Norway (more attacks warned of), traffic in narcotics, human organs and run a worldwide pedophile ring.
“This group/cabal had been involved, through the 1990′s, in the theft of nuclear weapons from the United States, in partnership with Victor Bout, weapons sold around the world, weapons reconfigured for terror attacks, perhaps the worst kept secret in the world with a suppressed FBI investigation, full involvement of US special operations commands and even a Department of Energy report outlining it all. Intelligence agencies around the world, now aware this material is out there, after Veterans Today published “proofs,” are offering everything. Threats will follow. It is an accepted believe that, in the right or “wrong” hands, this information can bring down governments.
“With them is an endless stream of cults, the majority more or less satanic, operating inside Judaism, Catholicism and Evangelical Christianity. ISIS is the first truly satanic Islamic cult. All are carefully coordinated through a network of handlers, drowning in cash stolen by the Federal Reserve and backed by a flood of politicians around the world, heads of state in France, the UK and Australia, the list can go on.” - Gordon Duff, Breaking: Russian Satellite Imagery on MH17
Universally Accepted Fact of Life
There is a dearth of information regarding how children become slaves at the moment of birth, and the central role this plays to the continuation of the status quo.
- This is most likely due to the confirmation bias that the great majority of people hold regarding having children.
Becoming a parent is almost universally accepted as a fact of life (something that cannot be avoided), and thus little thought is ever given to the consequences of creating a new human being.
- What the child may wish for does not exist.
Becoming a parent is never equated with also becoming a slaveholder.
Children are the last of the slaves to be freed. Why is this?
- Is it because they are ubiquitously seen as anything / everything but slaves?
Children's Liberation has no lobby, there is no agency seeking to free kids from parental and societal conditioning.
- In fact, there are powerful forces / groups / organizations aligned to keep them in their place — as slaves without rights, chained first to their family, and if that fails, chained to a foster home.
As minors by law children do not have autonomy or the right to make decisions on their own for themselves in any known jurisdiction of the world.
Only a few 'causes' result in the great majority of new births. Below are examples of selfish purpose on the part of parents.
- A means to an end.
- Emotional satisfaction.
- Provide extra work force for the family.
- Transmit the family name.
- Guarantee support in old age.
- Preservation of a race.
- Obey God's commandments.
- Gain self-esteem or reputation for virility.
- Vehicle of status and conspicuous consumption.
- Source of consumable entertainment.
- Mere emulation of others.
- An illusory sense of immortality.
- Service to self instead of service to truth.
- Unintended consequences of decisions (see below).
Also note the extremely common case in which conception is not intended at all, but is the greatly regretted (but ultimately accepted) by-product of sexual activity undertaken for its own sake.
