International Duties

A point for discussion:

"Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience ... Therefore [individual citizens] have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring."
-- The Nuremberg Tribunal 1945-1946

Do you agree that you have 'international duties'?

Duties International

The only international duty that I feel we have is to support liberty wherever possible. This does mean that we should interfere in foreign politics, as the US did in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, etc., in order to foster and build libertarian values (libertarian in the sense of liberty, not the distinct political party). These values can be found in many different types of systems, including republican, democratic, even somewhat in socialist types of systems.

Yes, in the Nuremberg trials, it became apparent that the whole world failed in its responsibilities to react to the horrible abuses that a particular political philospy, National Socialism, heaped upon people. However, we (those who were alive and influencing things) then forgot those lessons, and allowed communism and other socialistic philosophies to become even worse than the National Socialism model. Now, we have all sorts of countries, dictatorships, oppressive "democracies", and even the UN, supporting atrocities as bad as, or worse than, National Socialism. But relatively few people are accepting their "international duties" to object and fight against these atrocities.

That is actually one of the reasons I guess that I am active in forum and discussions such as this, to raise awareness of some of these problems. I don't know how effective I am in doing this, but I do what I can.

International Duties History & Civil Business Politics

Here we must distinguish between private and governmental action, so yes I do believe individuals, organized or not, have the duty to spread the message of freedom. Governments however may encourage such actions but not perform them (that is, they should be non-interventionist in the manner the Framers prescribed).

Duties International

Rather than 'International Duties' shouldn't it be 'Humane Responsibilities'? I believe there are inherent qualities in man that let you know the basics of justice and equity in treating your fellowmen with dignity - if one can find enough of those men that have not squashed those qualities with greed and hate then changes can be made.
