New Report Highlights 'Thirst for Justice, Dignity, and Equality' Amid Increased Attacks on Human Rights

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

In its new annual report, Amnesty International documents "the struggle of many people to claim their rights, and the failures of governments to respect, protect, and fulfill human rights," in 159 countries and territories over the past year.

"As we enter 2018, the year in which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights turns 70, it is abundantly clear that none of us can take any of our human rights for granted."
—Salil Shetty, Amnesty International

I have been reading up on the Nordic Model of governance. Norway, Sweden Denmark and others when life is sane and their living is high on the happiness scale. The thing of it is is this is the very thing FDR proposed in 1944. These countries are doing it the right way. Why can’t we? We cannot even talk about the Nordic Model, why? It works and ours certainly does not.
