National Review;6/12/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 11, p688
The article highlights the distinctions mentioned by Jeane Kirkpatrick, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, that are important to a consideration of human rights and national policy. The first of these is the distinction between ideas and institutions. The second distinction is between rights and goals. In order to attain a right to development, a society must have peace, order, an ethos, economic liberty and capital. The third distinction is between intention and consequence. An example of this is the situation of El Salvador. The final distinction is between personal morality and political morality.
