The Null Treaties
International treaties are formal, binding agreements, such as the conventions of friendship, commerce and extradition between the United States of America and innumerable nations around the world. These treaties guarantee civil rights to foreigners in the USA. The U. S. constitution holds that 'Treaties are the supreme law of the land'. Reality reveals a different picture. Systematic denial of protection under the law, misleading of foreign government representatives, and statements made by public officials declaring 'aliens have no rights' emphasize the meaningless nature of these solemnly concluded conventions. Pathetic revelations from the diplomatic side stating that 'treaties with the USA have merely historical value' may be divulged reluctantly in private, but obsequiously withheld from the broad public to avoid political friction with a superpower. The consequences evoked by this state of affairs are unambiguously revealed by this true story, disclosing a clandestine, dark side of the new world - as experienced by a European investor in modern day America.
