Less than 5% of the world knows of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights existence. Because passports are the official representation of government, if the declaration is in all passports, it becomes an official documentation of the world.

Given that less than 5% of the world knows of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights existence at this time, it seems that the only way to get the document seriously distributed is through the passports.

What I want is for governments to own their own document. It is for all people, but governments need to acknowledge its existence. Because passports are the official representation of government, if the declaration is in all passports, it becomes an official documentation of the world.

I would like you to WRITE A SIMPLE LETTER of this affect, asking your senator, congressmen and our new government to do this. If the United States Government were to do this, it would send a good signal to the rest of the world that we intend to live by international standards and would signal that the new government is quite serious about protecting the rights of all people.

All it takes to get this done is a presidential order. It doesn't need any new legislation. Please sign the petition.

Of course I signed, Tom. France considers itself the "pays des Droits de l'Homme" (the land of human rights) - maybe it is pretentious, be we can make it contagious, right? Thanks!
