The New American Government downgrades freedom to a lesser issue

According to press reports of statements made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her trip to China last week, efforts to press China on issues like Taiwan, Tibet and human rights "can't interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis."

In other words, the economy, climate change and security are more important than human rights.

What would be the use, in the view of the new US Government of addressing the economy, climate change and security issues, if human rights are to disappear or be downgraded?

Isn't the whole point of living to have responsibilities and rights as a human being? Sphere: Related Content
