Has everyone read the UN Resolution's? There are two free education laws. Shouldn't the UN have modified the first one instead of making a second?

Education For All
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
Category: Social Justice Strength: Significant Proposed by: Otnemem
Description: To give every child under the age of 16 the right to a free education

Free education
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Human Rights Strength: Significant Proposed by: NASTIC 2
Description: To give every person under the age of 18 the right to a free education

Also due to some of the UN Resolutions a lot (I'm not going to try to count them) of them are in violation of UN resolutions. Anything not a democracy or that oppresses a religon, gay marriages (my country doesn't even recognize marriges because it is a religious ceremony) After reading through the resolutions I have come to the conclusion that anything but a Democracy is illegal. Many of the resolutions seem to me the type of thing the nations are supposed to take care off, not the UN. This country joined the UN to be able to debate and solve international politics, not to be forced into a liberal Democracy.

A Declaration on Rights and Duties of UN States: Section I: The Principle of National Sovereignty: Article 1 § Every UN Member State has the right to independence and hence to exercise freely, without dictation by any other NationState, all its legal powers, including the choice of its own form of government.
Article 2 § Every UN Member State has the right to exercise jurisdiction over its territory and over all persons and things therein, subject to the immunities recognized by international law.
Article 3 § Every UN Member State has the duty to refrain from unrequested intervention in the internal or external economic, political, religious, and social affairs of any other NationState, subject to the immunities recognized by international law.
Section II: The Art of War: Article 4 § Every UN Member State has the right of individual or collective self-defense against armed attack.

In this resolution (Rights and Duties of UN States), it describes the nations rights in such a terse manner that I can't determine exactly what authority in my own nation is. How about maybe a link to the forum thread for any resolution that gets passed (and keep the thread).
