Actually, yeah, everyone should have the right to a meal, housing, and the ability to have an income. These shouldn’t be privileges. 

In which an angry Republican proves that capitalism is ridiculous as hell

… These are all literally human rights? I keep seeing stuff like this and. Do people not know about the human rights?

Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 23.

(1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.
(2) Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work.
(3) Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.

(…)

Article 25.

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.


(and that’s just the basics on that topic, 22 is a good summary and 24 is worth knowing about too, and by the way since it’s currently relevant, “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.” is article 9.)

Friendly reminder the USA have not ratified the Declaration of Basic Human Rights.

When I learned that last fact during my International Law course my first year of law school, I was OUTRAGED.
