Tired of the same old dystopias? Randomized Dystopia suggests three rights that your fictional tyranny could deny its citizens!
Imagine a world without these rights:
- States Parties shall take all appropriate measures to eliminate discrimination against women in order to ensure to them equal rights with men in the field of education and in particular to ensure, on a basis of equality of men and women: The elimination of any stereotyped concept of the roles of men and women at all levels and in all forms of education by encouraging coeducation and other types of education which will help to achieve this aim and, in particular, by the revision of textbooks and school programmes and the adaptation of teaching methods. (Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, Article 10, Clause C)
- States Parties shall respect the rights and duties of the parents and, when applicable, legal guardians, to provide direction to the child in the exercise of his or her right in a manner consistent with the evolving capacities of the child. (Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 14, Section 2)
- Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children. (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26, Section 3)
