More > equality, the application of International Human Rights, and the solutions to conflicts. It is very difficult for me, as an author and a firm advocate of peace and freedom, to write about the International Rights for the Human Races, Women, Children, Families, Animals, Religions, Politics, Gay Movements, Wars, Freedom, Democracy and Free Will, their Conflicts and all their Legal implications.
