“We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others.” – Will Rogers
Today is currently ending on the East Coast. To those in the West, enjoy the next few hours. In 1964 the 31st President Herbert Clark Hoover died. He was in office at the beginning of the Great Depression, he was also a millionaire, he also owned six silver mines. Hoover lost favour with the public because he did not want the people to rely on the state.
Some may say he made the right decision and others may say he didn’t recognize the rights of others. I am not referring to the rights that are listed in the constitution, I am referring to the Universal Human Rights he denied many Americans dignity and security as they lost their jobs, their savings, and their homes. Yet is this still the case in the World today?
I believe you as well as many others will agree that we have many unattended issues that rot in a locked box in a filing cabinet in a toilet stall in the basement of an abandoned building with a sign on the door saying “beware of the leopard.” For intentions sake I did not recount the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy verbatim. I would like to believe as the Improbability Drive makes more improbable things happen we see more rights being protected positively.
Good night world.
