Civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights are categorizations that have been set up to conveniently separate fundamental aspects that should be given to all by recognizing the Fundamental Human Rights of Life in Equality. For the purpose of

"This is currently an alarming fact when 3/4 of the world lives in Poverty which in essence means having their Fundamental Human Rights being violated without any effort to end this problem being established to resolve these problems satisfactorily, since they all have their origin and foundation in the economic organization each country and society has adopted as ‘how things are,’ as well as the years of cultural traditions and religious doctrines that also lead to the violation of the recognition of all life as equal beyond race, gender or language barriers as self definition. " Noted, and completely agree --- there is a fundamental change needed in all aspects of human society. Thanx for sharing another great article!

This is an excellent presentation taking on the current global economic system and demonstrating how violations continue to happen on a daily basis and how "all major forms of disregard to what are the best living conditions for all parties affected stem from the flawed economic foundation of our world system in conjunction with the political powers that haven’t served to genuinely support each individual to satisfy all basic living rights".
An educational, holistic contribution that can be read as a manifesto to a New World where LIFE is in Fact honored, protected, supported and cared for, on the basis of HUMANITY standing together, realizing and taking responsibility for LIFE as a Whole, which we are all equally part of.

Thank you! Noted and shared!

When 1% sitting on tip of pyramid of capitalism and 99% as salves everyday - there is yet no human rights on earth!

What an interesting question. Yes Poverty must be a Human Right at the moment because we have plenty of it and thanks to this system, we have some more coming guaranteed for all.
So, how comes we accept overty as a Human Right, meaning that we are willing to believe that if we can't access the money making machine we MUST be poor and we can't make a shift to see that a system that bases the living of people on their ability to make money and then doesn't guarantee this ability for all in terms of both education and job creation is inherently ABUSIVE and faulty and needs to be reviewed so that everyone has their right to Life as the most basic of Human Right and until we correct the link of Life=Money, all must be given enough Money to Live while we realign the system to provide for all Equal opportunities to educate ourselves to make everyone able to contribute to a self responsible smooth management of this world.

How about taking a good, long look at the people who actually created the conditions that resulted in the majority of the world's populace actually having to survive poverty? Globalization was created by the Friedman school of austerity economics and exacerbated by the machinations of the IMF; the WCB and presently the BIS. Let us not forget the politicians who followed their masters obediently and still do today. Globalization died in 2000 but its bastard child Corporatism has resulted in the Six Megacorps and their 220+ subsidiaries controlling 90% of the world's resources and wealth.
Poverty has always been with us but now it isn't so much a right as it is enslavement for the benefit of the 1% overlords who want to return to the years when the Divine Right of Kings was the norm and people were nothing more than indentured slaves at their merciless whims.

I wouldn't say that all we have is time Karen. Because we're quickly destroying our only habitat that is this planet. So from this perspective - - time is of the essence in fact.

Cool perspective Theodore. And in the end we're all responsible for the mess we've created on this planet....

Hi, in reply to Theodore Shayne, that historical aspect is explained here: 358.Human Rights and Equal Money from which I quote

"The creation of the United Nations was intended to establish organization and promote cooperation between nations to minimize the violent conflicts after the Second World War which means establishing peace; but at the same time, they left the allowance of organized armies to be part of the necessary ‘Security’ that is till this day existent as an acceptable form of defense in a world where war is still a means to ‘reactivate’ economy and gain more power over others – yes, no evolution has taken place in our global organization. Apparently the UN would pair up to organize and intervene with the Economic aspect necessary to precisely ensure the enforcement or implementation of the basic Human Rights. However the economical and financial organization was left to the International Institutions like IMF, World Bank and others which had Nothing to do with working par en par with the Declaration of Human Rights by the UN. Even if the same countries that funded the UN, the interests of International Organizations have nothing to do with establishing, for example, an economic system based on supporting every individual with sufficient money to live – this has Never been a Human Right Per se."

And, Theodore Shayne, the solution for the International Institutions - from the same blog above -

"All International Institutions that handle that establish the economic principles at a global level must provide the necessary means to establish Equality through Money. This will imply the restructuring of our current monetary system to change it from a system of debt to a parity of physical life value where money can exist as the representation of the rights to have access to the necessary means to live and as such, ensure that through providing Equal Money to all individuals the Equality principle promulgated in all our Constitutions and Human Rights Declaration is in fact applied; this means that the Distribution of Power will have to be Equalized to ensure that States don’t pursue hegemony or forcing compliance of small states to serve the ‘bigger’ ones. The Balance of Power which means an impending tolerance between nations wherein cooperation was defined as alliances to wage war and/or secure some territories to continue the absolute power over others. It is the Time when History has to be brought to a Halt and instead, give way to Equality as Life as a Principle under which all Nations and International Organizations will align all trade, migration, social integration, mutually inclusive interests between nations to establish peace, cooperation and the provision of support for all inhabitants in certain nations where support has been neglected throughout time, it is a priority to first support all the nations and people in need and ensure that Equality means obtaining a dignified living condition equal to the best possible and sustainable one already existent in what we have defined as a first world country, that is the Equality as what’s Best for All that we all have to aim with certain corrections and alignments to ensure it is sustainable at all times."
