STOLEN RIGHT

Every persons right in accordance with every law is every individuals right, however these rights are becoming ephemeral, stolen and comical just as the TV character Pinocchio. Pinocchio means a liar, and his nose grows with every fib. Politicians, the clergy, rabbis, imams and what have you continue to mislead masses in lies and over many years since creation, people have bought into living in that world of half-truths and lies. The whole system stinks from the root to the head. I have actually scripted on the mask and used the wrong spelling for president as a basic right to express my freedom of localized words.  This shows the society we have entered into, that a stolen right has become the new norm.. a lie has turned itself to be identical with the truth. Shocking where we are especially as a people that voted people into power, to be stripped of our basic human rights.

Part of this work unfolded from the speech from the President C.R, and it forms part of how the human society operates against the truth.
(PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A SERIES OF TWO PAINTINGS THAT LED ME TO EXECUTE THE ARTWORK “HALF-TRUTHS", so the story is shared by both two artworks)
In the wake of Covid19 and vaccines, herewith what C.R said, l quote
"..it is illegal to not wear a mask in public " , " My fellow South Africans, nobody will be FORCED to take this vaccine.” C.R spoke from the following human rights that are currently being stripped of every human being on earth today.

The South African Health Act, Act 61  2003 Section 6 states that You have a right to be informed of any health care contemplated for you Section 7, Nothing can be done without your consent Section 8, No decision about your personal health and treatment will be made or executed without your participation. This means an individual ought to first concur. The African Charter on Human / People’s Rights, Article 4 states, Human beings are inviolable, everyone has a right to life, liberty and security.
My fellow South Africans, we are jet-propelling, if not arrived as yet, to the violation and undressing of the Nuremberg code 1947 which states that The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

Our basic human right have become immaterial to that of a patent
