Standing above the law on human rights? Shielding allies from criticism? Acting only when politically convenient? Are governments promoting or blocking advances in international justice? What do you think?

What is justice, when some people cannot afford to eat and others live in luxury? What is justice when One man owns many thousands of acres of the best and most productive land and another owns nothing? What are human rights when the poor do not make the rules? Are men born to wealth superior to men born of poverty?

Justice – is something concocted by rich-man in muse and something that an elitist can attend to when they are bored, want to improve their resume – hey!! I worked in the slums of India, hey!!! I went to Haiti…
As Fullbright says It is a crime to consider any innocent baby born as poor or rich. It is an innocent baby, who was not born by its fault and unfortunately got castigated to its fate by inconsiderate society full of so called adults. How horrible. When society takes upon itself to be the caring mother and father of any child, then there will be no human abuse. Even elephants know this better. That is why in the evolution mammals developed, to provide better care and nourishment to the young.
Another Classic Example of Gaussian Distribution because of the cunning adults, wanton carelessness and callous disregard in unbelievable :
“During eight years of the Bush Administration, the 400 richest Americans, who now own more than the bottom 150 million Americans, increased their net worth by $700 billion. In 2005, the top one per cent claimed 22 per cent of the national income, while the top ten per cent took half of the total income, the largest share since 1928.
“Over 40 per cent of GNP comes from Fortune 500 companies. According to the World Institute for Development Economics Research, the 500 largest conglomerates in the U.S. “control over two-thirds of the business resources, employ two-thirds of the industrial workers, account for 60 per cent of the sales, and collect over 70 per cent of the profits.”
… In 1955, IRS records indicated the 400 richest people in the country were worth an average $12.6 million, adjusted for inflation. In 2006, the 400 richest increased their average to $263 million, representing an epochal shift of wealth upward in the U.S.” (“Wealth Inequality destroys US Ideals” Don Monkerud, consortiumnews.com)
It was not a recession it was DEMOLITION – Especially hurting is the small businesses, who long for autonomy, mastery of skills and genuine social purpose
