“If you allow people to say, ‘Oh, declaring an emergency means that rights don’t apply,’ then there’s going to be lots of emergencies.”
In part two of our interview with Robert Destro, former assistant secretary of state for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL), we discuss the state of human rights in the United States and the rest of the Western world. Destro is also a law professor at The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.
Previously, in part one of this interview, we discussed human rights atrocities in China, from slave labor in Xinjiang to state-sanctioned organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners.
“You have to stand up against tyranny. Otherwise, it will eat you alive,” Destro says.
