I am not a capitalist; I am not a socialist; I am not a communist. I am an absolute believer in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Regardless of the politico-economic philosophy you subscribe to, if your model of government guarantees the full menu of human rights, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, you have my full support. Human rights are not ideals we can only hope to possess in a heavenly utopia. They are not ideals that are optional for governments to pursue. Securing and protecting human rights is the only duty a government has to perform. Every endeavour or expenditure of a government that is not done for the ultimate purpose of securing or protecting a human right constitute an aspect of misgovernance.
