Often in political debate, people often use the argument that __________________ is a human right to support their reasoning. However, the question that I don't see people often answering is what criteria is used to determine if something is a human right. Can someone provide me with some answers?

Doesn't necessarily solves the problem, it just moves up the chain of command. What is the logical reasoning behind the rights the United Nations have declared to be human rights?

I particularly enjoyed Article one of that sham document.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

So that means right after birth, they could possibly be unequal in dignity and rights? It never states that a person should be considered equal of dignity throughout his entire life, only at the moment of birth.... which means a mass rapist could possibly be considered unequal in dignity and/or rights...

Then comes the "should" part...this isn't a declaration..that's a flat out opinion...what a stupid start of a sham document. And what does the ability to reason have to do with promoting a specific behavior anyway? What if someone chooses not to act in a spirit of brotherhood, or what if they act like real blood brothers that fight over stupid things.... what if there really is no common ground? are all these rights then null and void? What a stupid, stupid garbage collection of declarations...

anything associated with negative rights are considered a human right, if it falls outside of that, the speaker is just a retarded communist

Natural rights are the only rights that exist. Human rights, while they are meant to be one thing, happen to turn out to be another - a metamorphosis of the idea of rights to the idea of entitlements.
