It is maybe an unspoken, opportunist religious motivation the one at the base of the today's obsession on the "human rights"?
If the "human rights" of the Jesuits (the "right" to do the religious war of Counter Reformation, to infiltrate, manipulate and subvert countries, governments, etc.?) are touched, "human rights" must become the most sacred concept of any political idea and transformed in a religious concept?
Interesting that till the moment when Germany was roughly fifty-fifty papist and protestant nation, till 1945, there was the opposite fashion, of the denial of "human rights". After 1945 there was a changing of ideology, but there was no more a strong Protestant Germany who could have advocated and utilized for herself the "human rights".....
Jesuit law [Wikipedia]
The Jesuit law of 4 July 1872 was part of the Kulturkampf and forbade the offices of the Jesuit Order on the soil of the German Empire.
Content and consequences
The focus of the cultural action was due to State laws. Besides the so-called pulpit paragraph, the Jesuit law was one of the few laws in force in the kingdom level.
Unlike the introduction of civil registry offices or the enforcement of state supervision (surveillance law school) in Prussia, the Jesuit law was from the beginning a battle to fight ultramontanism, but the Jesuits were the spearhead of this movement. This followed the public campaigns of the real Old Catholics (*) and the German Protestant Association. The Liberal majority in the Reichstag cause a draft of the Bundesrat, that is of the Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, was exacerbate. On 4 July the law that affected the operation of the Jesuit Order and related was proclaimed. It banned all religious houses on German soil, and authorized the government to pronounce travel restrictions against individual Jesuits as well against foreign Jesuits who at any time were to be expelled from the Reich. Although the culture war was pushed forward by the Liberals, it was rejected by individual politicians such as Karl Biedermann , Ludwig Bamberger, Eduard Lasker as the Jesuit law as an exception from the law because it intervened heavily in the fundamental rights and blatantly discriminated against a single group. The majority of Liberals voted Bismarck, however, too rough, when he announced to the Reichstag: "we do not go to Canossa - neither physically nor mentally."
The law remained even after the substantial completion of the Kulturkampf in the 1880s into force. As a consequence, the Centre Party and other organizations  demanded again and again in vain for the repeal of the law. Inadvertently the continued validity of the law contributed to strengthen the cohesion of the Catholic milieu.
Only in 1904 the law was eased in 1917 and abolished. The motives were due to concessions to the Centre Party, which now was indispensable for the formation of the government.
