Transcript What's Going on In America? Two hundred years ago Thomas Jefferson formulated the Declaration of Independence, which forcefully expresses the principle of inalienable human rights. Americans can be justifiably proud of both their philosophy and actions in encouraging democracy around the world. We were therefore puzzled when we read the news that in certain states fundamental human rights were being withheld or revoked. Such a development seems to us to be contrary to the philosophy of the Founding Fathers and contrary to Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone is entitled to fundamental rights and liberties with no distinctions between groups or classes of people. But apparently, even in a modern democracy like the United States, universal rights do not seem to include homosexuals. In spite of the Declaration of Helsinki, in defense of which President Carter has declared himself so strongly abroad, in certain states homosexuals are excluded from government jobs. Many homosexuals have been denied housing, employment and access to public accommodations. Max van der Stoel, the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, justifiably stated that human rights are uprooted if they are not acknowledged without distinctions. We are alarmed by the campaign of Anita Bryant, who preaches discrimination in the name of God. We are also alarmed by the fact that many politicians in America, who do not personally believe in dis crimination against homosexuals, lack the courage to stand up to this bigotry. Some politicians have even jumped on the Bryant bandwagon of prejudice and injustice simply to further their own ambitions. President Carter's human rights policy can gain credibility only if the rights of homosexuals in the United States of America are bound inseparably to human rights for all people. How can one advocate human rights to one's neighbor if one's own backyard is not in order? To us, it appears that either Jefferson's idea of humanity and human dignity is upheld by the good people of the United States, or it is trampled on by the zealots. We ask our traditional friends and allies in America to fight this injustice. You have done it before; you can do it again. Simone de Beauvoir, Author, France.
