UN Human Rights Declaration

Ilya Somin has a great citicism of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights over at Volokh.  From my point of view, one of it’s major deficiencies is a lack of recognition of a natural right of self-defense, and the legal right to aquire, possess, and train with the means to defend yourself.  But I suppose that could end up being “exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”  You know, like these purposes.  Can’t have that.
