Historically many humans were slaves or considered property for the ruling class. They were a vital economic unit. The Romans had Greek slaves, serfs in the middle ages were effectively slaves for the agricultural land owners, and blacks were slaves on plantations.
The concept of human rights for everyone is a rather recent concept and the ruling class has found economic ways of enslaving humans for their economic gain since all humans are really economic units to be exploited for their work potential.
There is a serious question to be answered – What are your human rights when you are destitute and unemployed and unable to find work either due to personal incompetence or an absence of jobs? The fact is that to avoid starvation the government must provide a safety net for the destitute and also unemployed.
A basic human right ought to be financial support for basic standardized needs and an opportunity for internet reeducation in a useful job if you are willing to put in the time, energy, effort, and achievement to the best of your ability. You do not have a basic human right to a job or work, especially if you are incompetent, but you should have the hope for reentering the work force through personal effort and free government internet education assistance to retrain in a useful technological job.
Big businesses, robotization, standardization of parts, and the internet are all going to make the economy job poor unless you are technologically literate and there will probably soon be armies of unemployed, insufficiently skilled humans on welfare or government assistance.
If those destitute and also unemployed and on government assistance have a right to vote then they can potentially elect officials who will grant them a luxury lifestyle on welfare at the expense of the dwindling remaining working taxpayers. When welfare numbers exceed 50% of the population the power of their vote should be reduced by a percentage so that working citizens have more power in the political arena then those on welfare.
China has no problem adjusting the voting rights of her citizens because they don’t vote so the leadership has full authority to grant the destitute and also unemployed basic survival needs.
Specific details and changes in laws will be necessary nationally and worldwide. I outline those steps in my evergreen truth books CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS and NEW UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS.
