Tone deaf defence of human rights

Recently on Comment is free, Brian Whitaker sought to defend not only the concept of human rights, but the practical methods of realising them.

While I have no problem in Whitaker making a case for protecting human rights, sadly such defences give the appearance of being tone deaf to actual events around the world. This is even before we must consider the ‘theoretical’ problems with the current human rights regime.
