“I know his intention is good. But I already have what you want to give me... You want to give me the right to be a man. I acquired that right at birth. You, if you are stronger, can prevent me from experiencing it, but you will never be able to give me something that belongs to me.” With these words, spoken by a slave by birth to an anthropologist, he headed Kofi Annan a great article published in 1998, in which he defended that human rights are inseparable from human dignity and not a privilege that can, or cannot, be granted. But, although it may surprise some of us, not everyone in the world thinks the same as the former UN secretary. In other latitudes, such as in Tehran, a 22-year-old girl can be detained by a (moral) Guidance Patrol for not wearing a veil properly, mysteriously fall into a coma and die three days later, without being considered to have been officially raped. some of their freedoms. Right there they could sentence me to seven years in prison for writing this, which is precisely what happened the day before yesterday to the two reporters who publicized the case of Mahsa Amini. And to remind us that this is not just an isolated case, we learn that Armita Geravand, another young woman, but 16 years old, was arrested by the same Guidance Patrol, for the same reason, who also fell into a coma and was reported brain dead yesterday. In North Korea, a woman, the ex-girlfriend of the North Korean leader, was shot with machine guns along with the rest of her musical band, while her family watches, for having recorded videos with sexual content and disobeying laws that prohibit having a Bible. . Another crime that can lead to her being shot, but with an anti-aircraft cannon, is falling asleep at a public event, as allegedly happened to Hyon Yong-chol, who was the Minister of Defense of that country. In Russia, three young people from a musical group can serve a two-year prison sentence and subsequently be imprisoned six more times for protesting by singing against the person who deliberately allowed 118 sailors to drown on a sunken submarine, the Kursk, so as not to reveal military secrets, and to whom he claims responsibility for the death of 186 children during the “rescue” of the Beslan school and who, on top of that, accused the mothers of extremism for criticizing him, based on a law promulgated by himself. We talk about Vladimir Putin, who has served four terms as president and one as prime minister, and who imposed a “democratic” law that would allow him to remain in office until 2036. That said, when Protestants are heard shouting: “Liberate Palestine!” It is worth asking: but from whom? Because their supposed liberators would be precisely Iran, which helped plan the attack on Israel, according to statements by the same Hamas spokesperson (which, by the way, considers male homosexuality illegal); North Korea, which supplied them with equipment for the attack, according to weapons experts; and Russia, which maintains relations with them and with Hezbollah and whom it refuses to classify as terrorist organizations. What will not turn out like having let the Taliban “liberate” Afghanistan?


The quetzal is considered a symbol of freedom, because in captivity it usually stops eating until it dies and requires certain vegetation, temperature and altitude to reproduce. Keeping a platypus in captivity is even more complicated, because they require a lot of stillness, silence, certain light and temperature, as well as a diet of 700 worms a day, supplemented with insects, crustaceans, tadpoles, frogs and fresh egg yolks.
