This Is Not A Human Right: The EU, Vacations And Idiocy

In the movie “Monty Python’s Quest For The Holy Grail” King Arthur claims that the Knights should not go to Camelot because “It’s a silly place”.  That’s how I look at Europe, the EU in particular.

“The European Union has declared travelling a human right, and is launching a scheme to subsidize vacations with taxpayers’ dollars for those too poor to afford their own trips.

Antonio Tajani, the European Union commissioner for enterprise and industry, proposed a strategy that could cost European taxpayers hundreds of millions of euros a year, The Times of London reports.”

Really, is it a right or a bullshit entitlement?

“One of the consequences of such notions as “entitlements” is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.” – Thomas Sowell.

OK, I belive people have the right to do as they please as long as it isn’t hurting others.  If you want to take a vacation do it.  I don’t need to pay for it, you do.  If entertainment and relaxation are a Human Right that I am entitled to – even at others expense – why they hell are you not sending me beer and woman.  Think about it like this you have always wanted to take a trip to Tahiti so the government (ie. taxpayers) have to foot the bill for your trip (even if they don’t want to).  Now taking your fucked up logic I have always wanted to have sex with Scarlett Johansson, Anna Tsuchiya, Freida Pinto, Monica Baccarin and Eriko Sato and my dream vacation (that I am entitled to as a Human Right) would be to spend several months on a tropical island drinking 30 year old scotch and Murphy’s Irish Stout while impregnating them.  Is this fair to those women?  In my case yes because lord knows every woman on the planet wants me to be the father of their child because I’m that cool.  But for normal people, no it’s not since it’s what a police officer would call sexual slavery and rape (I am going to assume that all those girls come willingly for me, after all it’s me, but if they didn’t I wouldn’t force them too, I’d just get confused on why they didn’t).  You can have your vacation, just as I could have Anna Tsuchiya but I would have to work for it (and be very, very lucky) and so should you (work for what you want, not have Ms. Tsuchiya, I’ll kill you before I let you talk to her).  If you can’t afford to go on vacation it’s not going to happen and if you can’t afford it because your lazy ass didn’t work for it you don’t fucking deserve it.  Now, you might wonder why I was bringing sex into this.  Think about it this way; if you do not have the right to someone else’s body for your own pleasure why would you have the right to some else’s money for your own pleasure?  You don’t.  It’s that simple, you do not have the right to someone else’s body any more than the contents of their wallet.   The problem with Human Rights is that we have gotten past the traditional ideas of what a Right is.  Rights used to be something that people couldn’t take away from you and it was a gross violation against you if they did, now people consider Human Rights things that people have to do for you even at their own expense.  True Human Rights cannot be at the expense of another, if your Rights force someone else to do something they destroy that persons Rights.  True Rights cannot do that.  Don’t be surprised, it’s not like I’m the first person to say this, and if it’s the first time you have heard it pull your head out of your ass.

You want a vacation work for it.


I hate it here…

    Seriously though, you are right, before long i can see the EU passing laws that it’s a human right to have a car, a bed, a CD player and everything else those morons can think of.

    And europe wonders why it’s so far down the toilet.
