Proposal to Ban Slavery

30-11-2003, 21:52
It has come to my attention that no resolution to this effect has ever been passed by the UN. The Universal Bill of Human Rights unfortunately does not mention the subject of slavery. Therefore, I call on the United Nations to end this abhorrent practice.

You are incorrect.

End slavery

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.

Category: Human Rights
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Monocerous

Description: The scourge of slavery yet remains in these progressive times. People are bought and sold like cattle, unable to determine their destiny. Their families are split apart; they are allowed no possessions of their own. They are beaten, chained, and tortured. Therefore, I propose that the following human rights be given to every peoples of this great world: - The right to leave her or his job, given two weeks' notice. - The right to own possessions. - The right to travel freely throughout their country. - The right to bodily safety from one's employer. - The outlawing of the selling or purchasing of people.

D'oh. My bad. Dunno how I missed that.

I would delete this, but The System doesn't seem to like that idea.

You should make a law to legalize slavery; voiding the existing one.
