Crime against humanity: (n) a crime, such as genocide, directed against a large group
I am going to suggest six crimes against humanity which possibly should be considered as legitimate statutes. I am not suggesting there be prison sentences for them—but perhaps reminders to one another on how these six things perpetuate great pain on the human race.
- Every human being is better than an animal. To suggest, even jokingly, that somehow the animal kingdom has equivalency, is a crime. (We are worth many sparrows.)
- Insisting that every human has a destiny which they should try to locate, is cruel, when we all know that free will is the law of the Universe, and we make our own future.
- Flattering people because you don’t know what else to say is a crime against humanity because eventually the factual representation of their abilities will play out.
- Any assumption that gender, color, culture, religion, sexual orientation or political affiliation has anything to do with the virtue of a person is the definition of bigotry. This would be a crime.
- Anything that we cannot say to someone’s face should never be said behind their back.
- And finally, being sure of yourself is the surest way to make sure that no one else can be sure about you.
