    In the past week or two this has gotten less funny.

    Then there is this stirring piece of prose:

    Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

    Outstanding! Like all good humor, it works because (over and above the great wit) the laughter it provokes is a nervous laughter, its truth showing through just enough to cause a little anxiety. I await Via Meadia’s updating of Federalist 51.

    By extension WRM, The Glorious Revolution must share the blame.

    Pretty good stuff. Education majors would have thrown in ‘experiential’ a half dozen times but it’s not a bad effort at all.
