Universal Declaration of Armchair Rights

in line with the barbaric torch burning of chairs c/o Polytechnic University of the Philippines students, please be enlightened by the document attached herein and remember that armchairs also have their rights. attached is the Declaration of all declarations, unearthed from a very reliable archive by yours truly. transcribed this document earlier, publicized it today, 19th of March. hesitated, but here it is anyway, for your pleasure or pain or whatever purpose it may serve.
Universal Declaration of Armchair Rights


Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the wooden armchair family (or relative benches and similar seats) is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for armchair rights have resulted in barbarous acts such as torch burning which have outraged the conscience of couches and chairs and their advocates, and the advent of a world in which armchair beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common seat,

Whereas it is essential, if the armchair is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that armchair rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between benches,

Whereas all kinds and types under the United Furniture Cartel have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental armchair rights, in the dignity and worth of the armchair person and soul and in the equal rights of chairs and stools and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Furniture Cartel, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of armchair rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF ARMCHAIR RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all chairs and all seats, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the seats of Member States themselves and among the stools of territories under their jurisdiction.

**you may propose amendments or revisions, because we are democratic and all**

Article 1. All armchair beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
