Ed Konecnik Contributor The American Dossier The transformed Democrat Party has embraced the failed misguided notions and promise of a utopia as articulated in article 25 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well being of himself and of his family including food clothing housing and medical care and necessary social services and the right to security in the event of unemployment sickness disability widowhood old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control." Food clothing homes medical care do not grow in nature. These are goods and services produced by men. Who will supply these goods and services? Who will pay for them? If some men are entitled by right" to the products and work of others it means that those others are deprived of their rights and property. No man has the right to impose obligations unrewarded duties or an involuntary servitude on other men. There is no such thing as a right to enslave". Entitlements welfare expanding list of rights like health care food and housing is not freedom; thats dependency. Those arent rights; those are rations of involuntary servitude. Self-sustaining self-reliant citizens are the foundation of a free society. Our culture no longer reflects this ideal and our educational system no longer teaches how and why the individual rights protected by the Constitution created the highest standard of living on the planet. Life is a process of self-sustaining and self-generating actions and the Constitution guarantees our right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The right to life does not mean others must provide you with the necessities of life. Edward Konecnik is a retired music teacher musician and singer.
