The international community has taken a serious approach to “children’s liberation,” now enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Only a handful of tiny countries aren’t yet signatories. Bill Clinton signed the UNCRC, but the Senate never officially ratified it. This is for the better, as we’ll see.
Advocates portray its non-ratification as some kind of profound embarrassment. Until fairly recently, the only other major holdouts were Somalia (a government which barely exists) and South Sudan (a newly seceded country and not in the greatest shape). That’s hardly a flattering group in which to be included, and now the USA appears even less “progressive” than them.
The devil’s in the details
Many provisions are decent and sensible, which civilized nations already had long ago. However, some others are debatable. Even when the road to progress is paved with good intentions, problems can happen when vague and open-ended statements attain the force of law. This enables heavy-handed control and micromanagement.
Dictating agendas through international law is an increasing trend; the UNCRC could be the next legal frontier. The treaty is sort of considered a “living document”, and you know what that means. The following are some questionable items.
3.1: In all actions concerning children, whether undertaken by public or private social welfare institutions, courts of law, administrative authorities or legislative bodies, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.
Who gets to determine “best interests“, and by what standard? The next two lines provide more information, but all told, it’s missing key details. Clearly there’s a compelling interest in cases of abuse or neglect, which laws already address. However, outside of that, the door is still wide open to bureaucrats empowered to override parental authority and judgment.
13.1: The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice.
This is pretty open-ended. Mouthing off to authority figures without consequences could be considered a human right.
14.1: States Parties shall respect the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
Although I can sympathize with kids who don’t want to be dragged to church every Sunday, this provision is too expansive. It also means that a child can join a cult, and the parents have no say in the matter.
15.1: States Parties recognize the rights of the child to freedom of association and to freedom of peaceful assembly.
Parents would lose control over who their kids associate with, other than (per 15.2) forbidding contact with known criminals.
16.1: No child shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his or her honour and reputation.
16.2: The child has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
No need to hide the bong any more.
28.1.2: Encourage the development of different forms of secondary education, including general and vocational education, make them available and accessible to every child, and take appropriate measures such as the introduction of free education and offering financial assistance in case of need;
This makes free college a right. The UN presumably gets to determine who qualifies, and taxpayers will pick up the huge tab.
28.2: States Parties shall take all appropriate measures to ensure that school discipline is administered in a manner consistent with the child’s human dignity and in conformity with the present Convention.
My eight year old self is cackling with glee at that one. “Kid-lib” is great!
31.1: States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.
Again, it’s too open-ended. Is ten hours a day of video games a human right? The UN gets to decide that one.
37.1: No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Neither capital punishment nor life imprisonment without possibility of release shall be imposed for offences committed by persons below eighteen years of age;
This sounds good at first glance. However, this would’ve meant that Dylan and Klebold (had they survived) would’ve walked eventually.
Some positive changes we’ll never get
Potentially, some of the provisions could be improvements over the status quo.
6.1: States Parties recognize that every child has the inherent right to life.
The treaty defines a child as anyone under 18, though there’s no lower limit, so a baby exists from conception. Feminists who’ve fought tooth and nail for partial birth abortion won’t like this!
7.1: The child shall be registered immediately after birth and shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a nationality and, as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by his or her parents.
So after a frivolous divorce, a mother couldn’t deprive the father of contact with their children. However, article 9 basically contradicts this, leaving things up to judges and bureaucrats. Then article 10 waters down article 9. However, article 18 bolsters article 7. Confused yet?
17: States Parties recognize the important function performed by the mass media and shall ensure that the child has access to information and material from a diversity of national and international sources, especially those aimed at the promotion of his or her social, spiritual and moral well-being and physical and mental health.
Looking at it one way, this would forbid censorware blocking controversial political content to “protect children”. Online censorship is bad enough already.
29.1.3: [States Parties agree that the education of the child shall be directed to…] The development of respect for the child’s parents, his or her own cultural identity, language and values, for the national values of the country in which the child is living, the country from which he or she may originate, and for civilizations different from his or her own;
This effectively prohibits forms of cultural Marxism meant to drive a wedge between the generations, make young people ashamed of their own countries, indoctrinate kids with White guilt, or turn them away from their society’s traditional morals. Everyone would be allowed pride in their heritage.
Unfortunately, all this is too sensible to be implemented this way. Selective enforcement at the will of the governing body is generally how it goes for “living documents”.
It gets worse yet
Despite good intentions, the UNCRC has a basic underlying assumption that kids are just little adults. By definition, children are immature. By adult standards, teenagers act neurotic, and younger kids are completely clueless. This is why they need guidance by responsible parents and teachers. This shouldn’t be abrogated, even potentially, without compelling circumstances.
Putting the UN’s bunglers—our wannabe world government— in charge of children’s welfare defies the subsidiarity principle. If a family fails in its primary function of raising children, it’s the state government’s responsibility to intervene, not international bureaucrats unaccountable to the public. Keep in mind also that if the USA ratifies the treaty, it becomes the law of the land, superseding national and state law. Further, treaties can’t get repealed if it turns out they’re not serving the public’s interests.
Finally, the UN is notoriously corrupt. As protectors of human rights, they’ve become a sad joke. Is the treaty helping kids in hellhole countries that ratified the UNCRC? For a few other items, UN deployments often fail to protect embattled populations. They brought cholera to Haiti; that country didn’t need more problems. The worst is the UN’s frequent sex crimes. This is why we don’t need incompetent, scandal-plagued UN cookie-pushers implementing “kid-lib”.

Whether a certain provision is sensible or not is irrelevant. The UN have no business telling countries how to make family laws.
Besides, all of the UN women’s rights (that I don’t agree with) doesn’t even apply to Islamic countries, which reveals the hypocrisy.
“Whether a certain provision is sensible or not is irrelevant. The UN have no business telling countries how to make family laws.”
It’s’s a treaty, not a law. It’s 100% optional for the US to sign, ratify, and withdrawal from the treaty. The UN can’t even stop third world backwards from killing their people, you think they can stop the US from doing whatever?
UN is at the forefront of child abuse. This organzation goes into 3rd world countries and sexually abuses children under the guise of “improving” the local standard of life.
Combine this stuff with the state promotion of child gender dysmorphia we are seeing out of Canada, and we have got ourselves a serious trend.
Our current US child protection laws are fair enough. Set the UN’s Newspeak to “ignore.” Too many cultural double standards couched in wishy-washy utopian drivel for this to be a workable, realistic social contract.
Our current US child protection laws are so far from fair as to be a joke. You have obviously never had to deal with CPS. They are tin pot dictators bent on world domination one child at a time. They destroy families, wipe their lips and say they have done nothing wrong.
“I’m from the government. I’m here to help.”—what nightmares are made of.
I inherited one of my father’s coffee cups. It always reminds me of him fondly. it is the Great Lies of the World coffee cup. The above is one of those lies, right below “your check is in the mail”.
Considering their record on ‘Human Rights’ in which all the panels responsible for this thing are made up of its biggest abusers I believe America should leave the UN as should any body of government with any sanity or concern for their own people. The UN would be honest if it put 666 on its insignia.
Lol America created the UN!
We all make mistakes but to be truthful it was the liberal elite of this country who helped create the UN.
I don’t worry about the UN. It’s so incompetent, it fails at everything it touches.
Their goal is to fail. That is how it works. Then men have to pay the consequences, that is how they control society/men, by bringing chaos, or inventing oppression myths.
They own your mind, they own your body, they own your money now they are coming after your legacy.
Welcome to hell.
The UN should be dissolved. It is a useless globalist organization that spends more time lecturing European countries about “refugees” than it does trying to prevent Saudi war crimes in the Middle East.
Remember what happened in Rwanda? The UN “peacekeepers” stood by, wringing their hands as a million people were slaughtered over the course of a few months.
I think it’s the good intentions that count
Like the cladding on Grenfell tower in London.
That wasn’t a good intention. It was sacrificing lives to save money.
It would have improved the EPC rating saving on energy bills
“The UN should be dissolved.”
My family has been saying that since Reagan was POTUS.
Socialists seem to be trying to bolster their numbers in Europe by lowering the voting age to 16. Their internal polls must reveal them to be in the cellar.
The way the UN stood passively during the Rwandan Genocide told me everything I need to know about the organisation
Just a rumor, but I was told they were running a study on mob mentality funded by some globalist corp foundation and that was the primary reason behind their failure.
The inability to act during the Rwandan Genocide what absolutely disgraceful.
The UN needs a radical reform in order to achieve the aim it declared back in 1945.
I’m with you, but it’s gonna take a while…
The UN is a commie, feminazi organisation.
The number one reason I know that Climate Change is a scam is that the UN are the number one organisation shoving that down my throat day in day out. Oh, that and “Educate the girl child” = make them feminazis = sterilise them.
The UN should be put on trial ?? Give them a fair trial & then hang them !
Men aren’t humans, only woman are humans.
Who, exactly, is going to enforce this bullshit? Is a 5 yo going to drag his parents to the International Court of Justice?
This is really what the UN is all about: transparent extortion of richer nations. This is most assuredly intended to use kids as cover to demand more money for broke-dick, broke-ass third world shit holes and for “refugees”, who we owe everything we have, apparently.
I tell you right now, anyone get’s in the way of me and my children they WILL die. I will kill them with absolutely no emotion at all. I can see men getting pushed to the edge this next few years…anyone fuck with my family in anyway I will not hesitate to kill who ever fucks with me and my family.
Learn your agents beforehand. If anyone in your community could ever have the authority to fuck with your family, who would that be? Know beforehand where they live before they strike. Know your enemy. They’re already sworn to your destruction in private, so project futuristically who and what would stand in your way for peace and posterity and the future continuation and tribal hegemony of your clan/family. They’re already your enemy and just because they haven’t put your family in their crosshairs yet doesn’t mean the fateful day doesn’t draw nearer. THEY WILL pounce just like a large predatory animal that stalks its prey. That’s why you have to wall up to them hard and right now, just like they brick walled you and your family already with their legal and bureaucratic empowerment. You need solidarity in culture and brotherhood with your own folk WALLED UP to them hard, to where you hold a razor’s knife edge to their throat constantly, to where they DON’T DARE flinch or make a move to harm your family or tribe. Equal force is a law of nature, just as a ‘wall’ or dam contains and constricts water.
Its usually the court systems, or some government scumbags…and behind it all is some fat landwhales who work cushy jobs sitting on their asses pushing papers, I keep looking longingly at my samurai sword…longing to put it to good use when the time comes. Our enemy is global in nature, its infesting ALL western countries from New Zealand, to UK to US, and the time will come when enough is finally enough and ALL these countries will decent into caos its only a matter of when…not if…and its getting closer by the day.
I don’t think they realize how prevalent that thought is off the internet.
Me neither for that matter. And I would enjoy it too because I would make it slow and brutal.
Yeah… It doesn’t get much worse than family fucking.
I like the way you think, bro
No one. It’s pretty much symbolic, I don’t see why ROK is getting it’s all worked up about it because the treaty doesn’t mean besides saying we don’t condone abusing children.
Only woman deserve equality under the law, men have “Special” law’s since we oppress everything around us including the birds, and the bee’s and the fucking apple tree’s.
You can thank the Clintons for that, in, ‘this”, country. Had to run a DHS douche robot off at gunpoint 24 years ago thanks to a pissed off in-law, and the laws passed by democritters and their feminazi lobbyist scum. It was a very expensive experience.
Anyone fuck with my family or my children they will die, I will murder them. Simple as that. I don’t care anymore.
I do not see anyone who fucks with my family or my children as humans.
Unrelated, but this reminds me of a Google education talk I attended recently.
Basically, Google wants to make flesh and blood teachers obsolete, they want to control all content taught in the classroom and to make it so everything a student sees goes through them first, not to mention everything a student produces would be saved in their servers.
So much for the “don’t be evil” corporation.
just ask to take a nap during the truly evil bits. They can’t refuse
This company also promotes pedophilia, many videos on youtube they refuse to delete; young girls trying to do porn, showing their prepubescent breasts, trying to show their crotch area, and mothers using their children to masturbate and do porn through the excuse of breastfeeding.
They also stole porn to the porn industry, and promote sodomism, whoredom, and piracy. But they claim to worry about these things. They don’t because they make huge amounts of money with it. Google is a very sick company.
this show was too real…
So is that better or worse than them being committed to a state run institution for 14 years?
That’s up to you to decide, all I can say is that I trust Google as much as I trust Hillary Clinton.
But Google just wants to keep you safe!
yeah, they’re pretty useless, but I bet without the UN those Israeli settlers would have colonised Mars by now (the Palestinian part at least)
All so nebulous
I’m always intrigued by the fact that the occult Lucis (Luciferian) Trust founded by Alice Bailey is linked to the UN.
This Is Not A Joke….do NOT think It WILL Not Happen HERE…the United Nations Is a DANGEROUS ENITY
lol, the UN doesn’t have any power, the UN is just a node for countries to mutually create treaties.
Kids Lib is about decriminalizing pedophilia. As we slide down the rabbit hole, children, regardless of age, will have the right to sex with anyone they want. ANYONE.
“7.1: The child shall be registered immediately after birth…”
Oh, lookout now!
Sounds like they want to force the male’s name on the birth certificate without time for a paternity test.
I hate kids, and never want them (not that I have had a problem with this — females seem to hate me as much as I hate kids…), but if I ever did have one, I would NEVER sign a birth certificate without a paternity test. No one should.
Absolutely. I would demand it and would write that in as a term on the prenup. I would word things to ensure that if they did anything to contravene it they would lose everything-wishful thinking but the thought of raising someone else’s bastard makes my flesh crawl.
And the thought of the state forcing males to pay child support for kids that aren’t theirs makes my skin crawl x100.
That really should call for public hangings. It is disgusting.
Yeah I agree.
But, on 2nd thought, what with all the taxes I pay for welfare, food stamps, WIC, head start, section 8 and medicaid, I suppose I am already paying child support for kids that aren’t mine.
This is true. And for your paying taxes what do you see of it? Nothing. It is taxation without representation.
Said pre-nup to be interpreted, or voided, by the same family courts that are so fair and unbiased?
Are you under the impression that you, as a man, have to sign the birth certificate? The birth certificate says whatever the mother wants it to. You have no say in the matter. You might not find out for years that the birth certificate exists, but it will be used as evidence against you in a paternity hearing. And since you didn’t dispute it within 5 days you are SOL.
Well, I was but it seems like you are saying otherwise.
” And since you didn’t dispute it within 5 days you are SOL.”
Even with this, the spirit of my comment stands.
If she can put any name there, then dispute, dispute, dispute.
But I suppose that would be difficult if the wench doesn’t say that she is pregnant in the first place. The laws MUST be fixed. If not your kid, then no payments. Period. Unless she tricked you, and then SHE must pay back for support provided in the past. We would not be in this position if women were never given the vote.
The UN has been rife with pedophile scandals. Ask anywhere its “peacekeepers” have been sent. That’s not to say THEY’RE ALL THAT WAY of course, but it is an endemic, systematic problem within the organization.
Kind of like the Catholic Church?
Cancel the UN, bring back spanking and introduce rites of passages. There fixed it for you.
is the UN a sleeping globalist giant, regarding the military at least?
i read an article in the fake news where someone high up in the German government wants to make a “Army for Europe” (a native German may be able to confirm or deny this).
could this be the start of the globalist military? is this the reason the UN has sat on its hands regarding so many horrors in recent years? the evil global monsters not wanting to show their hand until they know everybody (Russia, China, NK, USA etc) is screwed down tight?
The idea was turned down because Nato is already there.
cheers for clearing that up NB
I belonged to a school called International. We had Junior U.N. programs. We went to a giant meeting in the Staples Center, a meeting where a bunch of highschool nerds met together from different countries and states and talked about how to solve the white people problem. Of course, they didn’t word it that way, but that’s exactly the main theme. White is whack, everything else is okay.
“His or her”??? The UN pushing their gender-binary normative agenda, the cis scum. (LOL)
Family has been defined as a woman and her children for quite some time. Men have been banished from families for two generations (each generation being 20 years.)
The State has no business intervening in anyone’s family.
Correct me if I am wrong, but last time I heard, in the good old U.S. of A., parental authority is so much undermined that it is virtually non-existent.
That a father can not discipline his child.
That children can call the police on their fathers if they try to discipline them under his own roof.
These things are happening on crazy levels, although I do not live in the USA, that is what I heard.
I would never want to raise my own kids in the USA, because of this, which is plain WRONG.
My children sometimes threatened me with calling CPS while I was imposing discipline. I told them if they thought they would be better off in foster care to have at it.
If by “discipline” you mean punch, use a weapon, not provide food or water, then yeah, it’s not allowed in the US…
No, I did not mean torture. I meant discipline.
Thats a pretty vague term… I presume you mean spanking? Yeah, that is completely legal in the US. The things I mentioned are pretty much the only forms of child punishment that are illegal in the US.
Not just spanking, but telling them what to do and how to live.
Those aren’t illegal in the US, what are you talking about?
Which is 100% legal.
Globalist squealing intensifies.
I am so sick of hearing about more laws, treaties, and legislation daily. Leave us the fuck alone already!
These authoritarian nutjobs at the local, national and international level are have a lot of gas in the tank still. This battle for our culture will be decades. Alt-right and Maul-right must entrench.
I wish to meet the father of this child ?
So that I can kick him in his crotch, until my foot will hurt ??
All involved in this bit of child abuse should be bared from any contact with children for life.
I would go for a surgical castration with a rusted bread knife, so that he doesn’t spread his moronic genes anymore ??
Destroying parents’ authority and substituting UN agents will undermine cultures under the guise of a benevolent pretense that substitutes Western leftist totalitarianism for everything else.
Resist the UN.
