Ukraine: Human rights vs. political rights.

If you agree with US president Obama that the Russians who make up 60% of Eastern Ukraine should be a silent majority and accept to live in the part of Ukraine where 40% of the people who are Ukrainians control their destiny, you are with Obama who believes that the political rights of the Ukrainian majority in the whole country (70%) should determine who runs Eastern Ukraine. If you agree with Russian president Putin that the Russians who make up 60% of Eastern Ukraine should be the active majority and not accept to be governed by the 40% Ukrainian minority just because they are a part of the 70% Ukrainian majority in the whole country, you are with Putin who believes that the human rights of the Russian majority in Eastern Ukraine supersedes the political rights of the Ukrainian majority in the whole country to govern them.

As a social psychologist I believe that the life of a people is happier and better expressed when they get to vote for their own representatives to govern them. Human rights are 60% important and political rights are only 40% important. Therefore, Ukraine should vote for a new Constitution called Federal where each province that has a 51% majority of one ethnic group get to have a separate election of its government. English Canada and French Canada living in peace and prosperity together is a good example. My God, people, you can have both your human rights and political rights, a federal system to having your cake and eating it too!

    It’s a little cloudier than that, actually. Crimea is its own semi-autonomous national body – Autonomous Republic of Crimea – and the population of Crimea isn’t 40% Ukrainian; it’s about 16% Ukrainian and the rest of that non-Russian 40% are primarily pro-Russian Tartars.
