Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Theory And Practice Of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets out an ideal that any responsible person tries to put into practice. But not all evils can be fought at once.

Fake Arguments On Fake News

While the authenticity verifiers marshalled across platoons of fact checkers might well be thinking they are doing us a service, nothing ever replaces the sceptical reader who covers multiple sources to identify an account and question it.  Never just read lines, but between them; never just accept news, but monitor its content and those who produce it.

Johnson-Trump

Brexit, The EU And Democracy
