Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week January 15, 2017Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
Some serious political philosophy in the editorial this week
Social critics across the Western world complain “property” rights too often take precedence over “human” rights, with the result that people are treated unequally and have unequal opportunities. It is not true to say that the Apollo House case proves that the rights of private property “trump” the human rights of vulnerable people. The purported conflict between property rights and human rights too often fails to take into account that property rights are also human rights. There would have been serious consequences for citizens’ property rights had the Apollo House case not been prosecuted.
There you have it. Human rights, Sindosplained.
