Human Rights – Legal Rights

Human rights that have generally been accepted, although they too are now at risk of being lost.

Legal Freedom to:
Peaceful assembly
Vote
Recognition as a person
Legal Equality and Recourse
Fair and Public Trial
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Seek asylum in another country
Nationality
Social Order

The United States was founded on the belief of equality.  The right to assemble with others was essential to the beginning of our country.  Whether that assembly occurs indoors, or outdoors, should not matter.

The right to vote.  That has been debated since the beginning of the country, as to who should have the right to vote.  All humans should.  Regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity.  The only exceptions should be murders and sex offenders.  At one point, voting was considered a holiday.  Perhaps we should go back to that since so many companies refuse time off for employees to drive 20+ miles away to vote.  Or, create an online system that only takes a few moments.

All people should be recognized as people.  There has been much recent legislation to deny women as people, and take away their rights.

More prominent legal issues revolve around more serious matters.  Social order is vital to allow human rights to exist for all.  This requires an innocent until proven guilty justice system.  That justice system is required to grant people proper representation in a fair and public trail within a reasonable amount of time.  Not years or decades later.  Nor, should it punish those whom have been victimized.

No person should be denied their basic human rights based on their nationality.  Yet, this occurs every day.

Humans rights bring equality.  Those who demand their rights, while denying others equal rights, are hurting themselves as well as the person they are denying personhood to.

Some people like to say life isn’t fair.  We as people, as humans, should try to make it as fair as possible.  Treat others the way we want to be treated.  Raise others up, don’t trample them in the mud on the rise to the top.  There is no point standing on the mud flats with no one beside you.  Help them up with you, and bask in the beauty of the sunshine.

Human Rights – Freedom From List

Human rights are something that should not need to be debated.  Only those who put other people’s lives in jeopardy risk the right to freedom.  Even then, they are protected by other rights that determine how they should be treated, and how the planet should be protected from them.

One of the most basic aspects of human rights is the freedom from section.

Freedom from:
Slavery (even wage slavery)
Torture
Religion
Imprisonment without just cause
Forced Deportation

Freedom from slavery has changed meaning over the last few centuries. Originally, it meant that people personally bought and sold other people as if they were belongings instead of individuals.  However, it has come to be recognized as corporate slavery – where local corporations refuse to pay a living wage, and there is no where for the person to go.  Kinda like the old mining towns, and owing your soul to the company store, simply because you owed so much, you couldn’t leave.  With no chance to escape, alive.

Every person should be free from torture.  Yet, governments are using it again against people.  Even the fear, or mention of torture should be too much.

Freedom from religion.  Religion is a person choice.  One that should not be forced on another.  People have the right to choose a religion, or not choose one.  No one should require, or demand that a religion be required.  It is understandable that some religious organizations would prefer employees with the same beliefs.  However, they should never degrade people who have other beliefs.

Every person should have freedom from imprisonment without just cause.  False imprisonment leads to loss of wages, work time, and community success.  At times in our history, it has been considered okay, and sometimes a safety issue to put people behind bars to protect them, whether from themselves, or others. It would be nice to believe our country has grown beyond that need to protect citizens this way.

Forced deportation of legal citizens, legal immigrants, and those visiting the US is a human rights violation.  It should not be tolerated.  Even criminals should not be forced to leave without a proper trial, sentencing, and legal outcome.

The only exception to following human rights laws is when their rights attempt to trample yours.  The old saying goes, “Your rights end where mine being.”  No one has the right to take your rights away.  Unless, you are using them to hurt others.

Ruby’s Law is a weak start, a chance to bend the bars of abuse, without breaking the survivors. #domesticviolence https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06VVNW5XR

There is no easy answer as to why survivors do not escape. Often, they’ve no where to go. #Domesticviolence https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WVBZVQB

Human Rights and Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is human rights and sexual assault awareness month.  As well as child abuse prevention and pet first aid training month.  Online calendars have a long list of awareness events for the month of April.  A blog could cover one each year, and never cover them all in a full human lifetime.

Many of the subjects for this month can be depressing, so I’ll try to intersperse them with the more cheerful topics.

The first topic of the month will be human rights.

Human rights should be given to all people, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or gender.

Below is a basic list of Human Rights:

Freedom from:
Slavery (incuding wage slavery)
Torture
Religion
Imprisonment without just cause
Forced Deportation without just cause.

Freedom to:
Own property
Religion
Express thoughts and ideas
Peaceful assembly
Vote
Recognition as a person
Legal Equality and Recourse
Fair and Public Trial
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Privacy of home and correspondence
Economic security
A job, a fair wage, and a trade union
Travel
Seek asylum in another country
Nationality
Marriage and Family
Education
Social Order
Create Intellectual Property
Community Responsibility

The only time some human rights should be waived is for people who sexual assault others.  Those people have no right to be out and about among the rest of the human population.

These issues will be covered in deeper detail in later blogs.

The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice looks at generational damage caused by abuse, neglect, and pain. #domesticviolence https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WVBZVQB

Survivors have known no other life.  They are conditioned to believe abuse is normal. #BendingtheBars #selfesteem https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06VVNW5XR

The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice and Benidn ghte Bars

Bending the Bars and The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice are now available in ebook format.
These novels combat domestic abuse and sex offenders. Something that has run rampant in the last twenty years. This is a serious social ill that should have been eradicated thousands of years ago.
Humans are the only species that would consider sexual interest in a female who is not of child bearing age.
Sadly, our laws protect the abusers rather than the survivors.
In addition, the laws, courts, and society further enact victim blaming against the survivor – often denying them family, friends, jobs, a safe place to live, and all rights as a person to their privacy, access to food, water, clothing, or shelter.
Sad.
Someday, humans may decide to treat people as equals, and actually allow abusers to be properly removed from society.
Were they once abused? Often.
Yet, for every abuser left in a community, they create thousands more.

Stranger Danger

Last night was funny. Bailey pup decided to howl. It was such a odd howl, as his often are. I thought it was hubby making fun of him.
I was able to use my Bluetooth hearing aids to listen to my novel yesterday as I edited. It left a major headache.
In Bending the Bars, which should have never needed writing, I talk about Ruby’s Law. It is a start. Not enough. Her law allows people to escape their abusers with their children. They can legally leave the state and live in a fenced in area where they can recover from their abuse. Many will never leave. They feel safer inside than outside.
I dream of the day the first child is born that will never meet anyone who has been abused. That will be at least a century. Abuse, particularly sexual abuse, runs rampant in this country, in our world.
Until we have laws that will protect the victims, not the abusers, it will.
We need two aspects to that law:
1. Women (and children) can smack the abuser at the first touch.
It has been proven that when a male first begins his first grooming tactics on his first victim, if she physically stops him, 9 out of 10 will not become abusers.
2. Children need to be taught about bad touch. Used to be called stranger danger. And while strangers are a danger, 95% of abusers are family members, family friends, or others known to a child. They begin grooming children for abuse, often from the moment they are born. By the time they reach school age, most teachers can recognize which children have been groomed for sexual abuse. Even if full sexual abuse has yet to occur.
3. Sex abusers know they can get away with their crimes. Forever. And, they can give their victims deadly diseases. Also, by abusing one person, they open up an entire network of that person’s contacts, family, friends, co-workers to potential abuse. Abuse never ends with one victim. We need a justice system that will attack the problem. The system we have now, allows the abusers access to their victims. And they know they will never be safe as long as the abuser is alive. If the abusers were tried, convicted, and sentenced within 48 hours of an attack, more would be reported.
I long for a day when a woman can walk anywhere she wants without fear of sexual attack. There is no reason for these attacks. 99% are never reported. The survivors often bury them. Forget them. Hide them. Lash out at others. They know there is no hope of their attacker being brought to justice. Now, they even brag about sex abuse on national tv. They know they won’t go to jail.
And so it continues.
One abuser can create thousands of victims in one lifetime. Of those thousands, many will become abusers themselves. Even if they don’t, they often live a life of fear and hiding. Which affects every person they come in contact with.
We need stricter laws. Sadly, the sex offender laws have been loosened in the last few decades. That has led to many issues. Offenses against another person’s body need to be taken seriously. As an offense against life. It is a form of murder. As it murders self-esteem, self-respect, hope, dreams, and the future of the victim, and the dozens of people in their lives.

Point of View

I have to write the blurb for Bending the Bars, and find the blurb for The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice.
A few more bits.
These will be ready to go soon. Very soon.
The original version of Bending the Bars, is the very first “novel” I wrote.
It deserves quotes. At the time, I thought it was complete. I didn’t realize what a mess it was. Full of filter words. Half the chapters were little more than a summary paragraph. The connections didn’t work.
When I re-wrote it, I found a way to weave it together. I needed the thread story to be different than in the original version. This made two chapters, that were fully written, very difficult to re-construct.
One especially, since it was apparently in the POV of the survivor, instead of the rescuers. I really didn’t understand POV when I wrote it. Though, I can understand why I did it that way. It gets the reader into the head of the survivor, and why they stayed in the abuse situation.
It would work for a movie. Not a book. Readers aren’t use to head-hopping. TV watchers do it all the time, and don’t realize it.
In some ways, I’ll be glad to finish and publish these two dark novels. They tell the tale of a dark and evil time in our history. Let these books reach survivors now, and help our world recover to stop the abusers. To stop the abuse.
Not all the characters live. Those who, are often scarred beyond the ability to live a normal life. There only hope is each other. And the safety behind the bars, hidden, legally safe from their abusers.
