It's pretty standard when reporting speech, even as a quote, to clean it up a bit.

International emergency frequencies should be already in wide use, to the extent possible. Not specifying this was part of why res. 75 was repealed, and you're actively prohibiting it! I'd also suggest dropping the blocker clause. What I meant to say was that the frequencies that WILL be widely use...

Because rules shouldn't stop people from using the last available option in an emergency.

And the requires clause still doesn't actually do anything.

It requires a basic set of services.

Also I'm not saying to ditch the mandatory education, I'm saying to put in something like "unless it is already done as part of the basic curriculum". Isn't that implicit? I don't think it's normal for resolutions to have "unless you're already doing it" exceptions; you're just ...

Mainly for pragmatic reasons (it was the version that was easiest to get off the shelf at the time :p ).

There are quite a few English translations available online. I'm a fan of Young's Literal Translation, personally; it just sounds more Biblical.

That is what the current phrasing says.

There may be an argument that it's not a representative sample, but it's certainly large enough . Large enough for what? If it’s not representative then the only conclusion that we can draw is that it happens. A sample of 2000 is large enough to be representative of an entire country. There's a ris...

I didn't ask if they care about equality, I asked if they have a right to their way of life. They do, don't they? And you do think that people should respect the right to one's own way of life, don't you? Well, if their home countries allow than yes. But my point there are different cultures with d...

One could be both a woman or transfemme and nonbinary as well, and nonbinary is such a broad term, all it is any gender that is not strictly a man or a woman. Plus, identities aren't static as one might think. Um, no. You cannot be both not a woman (nonbinary) and a woman. You can be nonbinary and ...
