Sentences Hi, there Which of THESE sentences sounds better? 1)“We need laws that don’t allow any kind(s) of violation(s) of rights - NOT political, NOT civil, NOT human rights in general“ or 2)”We need laws that don’t allow any kind(s) of violation(s) of rights - NEITHER political, NOR civil or human rights in general” or 3)We need laws that don’t allow any kind(s) of violation(s) of rights - NEITHER political, NOR civil, NOR human rights in general”? Thank you

Honestly the first two can work.

It would be more natural to say: "We need laws that don’t violate any political, civil or human rights" or "We need laws that violate neither our political, civil or human rights".

What about the first one?

Number 3 sounds the most of the natural of the three, but still sounds a little forced. You could drop the second NOR and keep the same meaning but I suspect you have put it in for emphasis
