The wizard of Oz

Even while he's slogging it out in Australia, championing free speech and other things and stuff, the Steyn still has time for brilliance online. From the OC Register:

The transformation of "human rights" from restraints upon state power into a pretext for state power is nicely encapsulated in the language of Article 14 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, which states that everyone has the right "to receive free compulsory education." Got that? You have the human right to be forced to do something by the government.
Commissar Lynch puts it this way:"The modern conception of rights is that of a matrix with different rights and freedoms mutually reinforcing each other to build a strong and durable human rights system."That would be a matrix as in some sort of intricate biological sequencing very few people can understand? Or a Matrix as in the illusory world created to maintain a supine citizenry by all-controlling government officials? 
[...] This perversion of rights is killing the Western world.
