Postre: USA: Moral Crisis (Gene Franklin, US) (John Eipper, USA, 10/18/06 10:35 am)
Robert Whealey wrote on 18 October:
Yet there is no constitutional government to enforce [UN-mandated human]
rights for individuals.
Gene Franklin responds:
This is an extremely important point. The late Professor Packer of the
Stanford Law School once pointed out that a law without sanctions is just
good advice. Can anyone point to a list of those countries that actually
enforce a Bill of Rights?
JE comments: Even more important than sanctions is the power (or the
perception of power) to enforce them.
