Harold Koh and the End of Human Rights

A good smackdown that applies equally to the cultural marxists at work in the Canadian Human Rights Commission who wish to further erode Canada’s sovereignty.

Given that premise, it is no wonder that, as Hathaway points out, the number of treaties that are signed do not correlate with improved human rights. Under Koh’s theory, the places that need the enforcing efforts of transnational civil society the most – that is, the world’s dictatorships – are the ones that have the least of it. On the other hand, from his point of view, Koh’s approach offers wonderful possibilities for changing the U.S., precisely because it is an open and liberal society.
