Eduardo Galeano: The right to dream of a better world (El derecho a soñar)

SUMMARY:

In 1948, and again in 1976, the United Nations proclaimed long lists of human rights, but most of the world's people still enjoy only the rights to see, hear and remain silent.

Suppose we exercise the never-proclaimed right to dream? Let's set our sights above and beyond the abominations of today to divine another possible world.

The right to dream is a poem written and read by Eduardo Galeano.
