Human Rights

I am sick of the excuse and demand of HUMAN RIGHTS.

After just reading a post on this EF web site of a Russian that cannot find a job in Switzerland and moaning about Human Rights because he is being rejected.

Non-EU Job Seeking in Switzerland - Thoughts/Experience

Inmates in prison with Human Rights.
People breaking the law of countries they visit with Human Rights.
etc...............etc................ etc.............. etc............... etc......................... etc .

I'm sick............sick ................sick ...............of it!

Thanks!!!

Re: Human Rights

I agree, Cashboy. Unfortunately it is the sign of modern times. People give everything for granted and when they discover that, actually, they cannot "have everything", instead of appreciating all the other things they DO have, they feel that their rights have been violated.

Re: Human Rights

Another thread that will degenerate I'm sure.

Human rights sure are a bitch, I for one would love to go back a century when they didn't have these troubles, when people could take nothing for granted, oh what a wonderful world it was, and what a miserable one it is now.

Don't take the whining of a minority to be the zeitgeist of now.

Re: Human Rights

Human Rights are a wonderful achievement of our society, they should by all means be respected. It's however rather dull or at least sad if some people are not able to interpret them correctly. Not granting a job in Switzerland has nothing to do with violation of the Human Rights. Simple as that. Anybody interested in reading the Human Rights in one of 360 translations? Here they are: Click!

Re: Human Rights

Human rights ARE important. Nevertheless, it is insulting when people who do not get their way or are just whiners start complaining in the name of human rights

Re: Human Rights

Human rights are what my parents fought for. It had nothing to do with a persons entitlement to a job in another country. More to do with wages that meant your family could nutritionally survive. A roof over your head and fuel to burn. We've come a long way since. Unfortunately some have been left behind.

Re: Human Rights

Human rights and civil rights are different.

Now, why there is a distinction between humans and civilians, this is another discussion.

Tell me about it. I'm from a country that according to a certain big neighbor, violates the human rights 24/7. Because we...demand that people applying for citizenship should speak a basic level of the local language. Shock! Horror! (most countries have the same requirement, including the certain neighbor himself)

Re: Human Rights

I started to search for a job one year ago, and still I have to go back in Italy to gain some more money and returning in Switzerland to continue my search.
In all of this time I came to understand that, although is a matter of fact that the Swiss job market is very biased about foreigners, the main reason I haven't found a job in here is because there are many people who are more qualified than me out there. People who go bitching about human rights violations simply can't face this simple truth.

Re: Human Rights

We will have to live with this "B.tchin" coz this "B.tchin" is a very important Tool in Foreign Relations for the Big Political Powers... Justifiably interfere in other countries with Good Cause and link it with IMF loan/bail out conditions.. All Good Business

If some poor guy is trying to make the same principle work for Him.. all the best to him...

Power To The People!

Well, I am here simply to live with the woman I love. I am pretty happy in my country. I am not moaning about my situation here, I hope that's clear.

Re: Human Rights

It is very telling that there is no Universal Bill of Human Responsibilities. Rights without responsibilities are a disaster every time. Seems like every second or third generation has to re-learn this from scratch (or maybe I'm just in a pessimistic mood today).

Cheers

Jim

Re: Human Rights

it's actually Human Rights 2.0

the new definition is this:

A catch-all basis for complaint when things are not being served to you on a silver tray, no effort involved. Use "Human Rights 2.0" to complain when you believe you are being targetted personally by an injust system or person.

Example:
The person this morning violated my Human Rights 2.0 because they asked me to move my bag off the train seat so that they could sit down. I mean, WTF, my bag and I have been together since I bought it last week and it's a family heirloom.
