On December 31, 2010 The Guardian published an article by Mr Stephen Kinzer, a US journalist and author. In the article, titled "End human rights imperialism now” ( see here): Steven Kinzer attacks human rights groups, singling out the reputable Human Rights Watch for having "lost their way by imposing western, 'universal' standards on developing countries.” Unfortunately Stephen Kinzer's arguments are based on the fallacies and contradictions he set out to denounce and suffer at least three major flaws: they contradict his own stated principle of the universality of American Values, they target the wrong culprits, and they are based on wrong premises and bad examples.
