No Such Thing As An Opinion!

US allies oppose UN gay rights resolution. That's what you call governing the people!


The United Nations Human Rights Council today approved a gay rights resolution, by a slim margin of 23 to 19.

Which countries opposed the resolution?
 

"States that opposed the resolution are: Angola, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Djibouti, Gabon, Ghana, Jordan, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Senegal and Uganda."


Yes, some of the most backwards countries in the world appear on the list.


But don't I see some recipients of US financial aid on the list?


Why should US financial aid to them continue, given their disgusting opposition to human rights?


Think of it this way.  Let's say that some people were stranded on an island.  If the society was small enough, they wouldn't need to set up a government at all.  If it was large enough, they would need to assign certain people to handle certain tasks their society requires.  To create a government.


Think about what a government actually
is.  It's a body set up by the people to assist the functioning of the people in society.  The people.

So why are those nineteen governments not serving their own people?


Even worse: Why were those nineteen countries selected to be part of the
Human Rights Council in the first place?
