    There is a reason that is a GA document and not a document that really has any legal bearing. Reason being, no one wants to make law every part of "human rights" that anyone comes up with.

    Article 5 is subjective and thus irrelevant.

    Article 12, there is no right to privacy.

    Not sure about article 13 the right to leave or return to any country. If you leave the US because you broke some laws, or went to an enemy in the time of war, I'm not sure you have the right to return. I'm looking at this from the perspective of Marc Rich.

    Article 20 would be great. We should have that here, and call it the "anti-union" law.

    Article 23, 24, 25 and 26 are all false. Those can be wiped out.

    Article 27 can be renamed the anti-hippy intellectual property rights law.

    Some of it is good. A few are questionable. The rest are junk.
