Then no government in history, no matter how corrupt, capricious, or evil, has ever violated a single human right. It's quite literally impossible.

When Uday Hussein saw a woman out in public, and had his bodyguards kidnap her so that he could rape her, nobody involved ever violated any woman's rights. You see, the Iraqi government had never established those rights in the first place. And obviously, you can't break something that doesn't exist.
