Equal rights is not the same as human rights. The same people fighting for the right to be in the military today were the same people fleeing to Canada when they were forced to join. — Ogbeni Ayotunde (@OgbeniAyotunde) July 27, 2017 38.907192 -77.036871 Rate this:Washington, DC, USA Share this:TwitterFacebookTumblrLinkedInPrintPinterestWhatsAppGoogleEmailRedditTelegramPocketSkypeLike this:Like Loading...

Equality is one of the core abstract concepts found in human rights law i.e. equality before the law. Abstract ideas are different from law but you don’t get one without the other. An abstract idea is not a human but what are we without such things?

Yet he is now fit enough to be both president and comander in chief. The observation that in this debate participants on both sides may hold abstract ideas that are complicated and seem almost contradictory is simply to note its conducted by humans. Its the reason we invented and developed a legal system, to deal with this aspect of our nature. The law can seem deaf, dumb and blind to our desires. It is easy to forget why that is so.
