I believe that the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
I believe all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of kinship, love and tolerance.
I don't believe in distinction of any kind, such as
- race, colour, ethnicity, nationality
- sex, gender identity
- sexual orientation
- language, culture
- religion, spirituality
- political opinion
- any opinion
- origin (social, national or any other kind)
- age
- weight, size
- looks, beauty or lack of it
- disability or illness, visible or invisible, of mind or body
- property, wealth
- birth
- other status or identity

USonian colonialism

USA takes the privilege to attack Syria, Pakistan and other countries it is not currently at war with disguised as "defensive attacks against terrorists". When India tells Pakistan to control her borders and stop the terrorists from coming to India, USA tells India to seek a "peaceful resolution to the confrontation".
Why should India do anything differently than USA itself?
Why shouldn't USA try to seek a peaceful resolution to the confrontation?
It's like if they look down on Asian peoples and think they are lesser... more qualified to make their own decisions, to govern their own countries, to take care of their own businesses...

Dear USA: It's quite ok to WISH to share your good with the rest of the world, but when the rest of the world does not want it, haven't asked for it or would like to do things their own way, it's not ok to try to force your "good" on others. What's good for you might not be good for someone else. People have to be able to make their own mistakes, and not need to pay for yours.
