Can't we all simply agree on the statement that all beings are capable of awakening, and that human existence offers the best opportu ity for actualising this potential?

And can't we agree that, in talking about human rights, we are talking about the relative goodness of an ethical society? An ethical society may not quite yet be an enlightened society, but it's at least a step in the right direction.

I can live with that. The "enlightened society" is only a hypothetical ideal of course (so far - watch this space ), but so are "democracy" and the "free market". No reason why a hypothetical ideal can't be used as an (impermanent) yardstick.
