Topic:   Human Rights
Human rights.  What are they?  Who determines them?  And on what basis?
Our impeachment discussion last night veered so often into the concept of human rights, especially in terms of the issues at our southern border, that we considered devoting an evening to discussing varying views of those rights.  Later we sampled a July 10 New York Times article by Masha Gessen. It addresses Trump’s July 8 announcement of the composition of a new body called the Commission on Unalienable Rights.  That persuaded us that yes, it would be very interesting to discuss more broadly the surprisingly controversial concept of human rights.
