Human rights under democracy

We are concerned with the present and the future and if we can go the moon, certainly we can make our brothers and sisters read and write, develop skills which would be true liberation.

We cannot perpetuate inequity and inequality even with regard to drinking water and health problems. The reason is obvious. Should there be a large number of people in despicable condition while some, by chance or choice, could get away with all the benefits of economic freedom?

The values captured in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in other global and regional commitments are consistent with the values upon which the United States was founded centuries ago.

Philosophers from the time of Socrates down to Bertrand Russell in modern times have dwelt at length on the consent of the governed, participation of the governed, opportunities of the governed, enlargement of the scope of the governed in the process of government for the betterment of individuals and institutions, societies and the world at large.

What Are the Benefits of Democracy in Government?

It also encourages all its citizens to understand that the beliefs and behaviour of others in respective religious spheres should be respected, appreciated and at no stage ridiculed, denigrated or slighted. What we need to do is to make more effort to sustain and develop these qualities.

Education is the most liberating influence on individual and society. Having stated that in a modern, secular state people come together for advancement of material and other benefits, we shall briefly state the rights required for such advancement and the means whereby they could be furthered.

However, despite already possessing such positive qualities, we tend to neglect them. We often come across even in the relatively well-informed government circles people gathering for an occasion provided with bottled mineral waters while those whom they are supposed to govern do not have access to clean drinking water.

The awesome power that economic institutions have acquired in our society, and the distressing effects that poverty continues to wreak, should make all of us look for means of transforming our economy into one based on compassion.

The majority of Chinese "development" plans in Tibet are designed to assimilate Tibet completely into the Chinese society and culture and to overwhelm Tibetans demographically by transferring large numbers of Chinese into Tibet.

Similarly, there cannot be peace and stability as long as there is oppression and suppression. When we are facing difficulties, we invariably meet someone, who may be a stranger, who immediately offers us help. Thus, as a result of deliberate policies, an entire people with its unique culture and identity are facing the threat of being utterly overwhelmed.

Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Planning is not necessarily an evil word: Liberty of equality or any type of political right is meaningless if a section of people to be for ever consigned to penury. But even very small countries do have problems with minorities of various descriptions and, therefore, care is to be taken to ensure that rights are had by all who are members of the body-politic.

Social and Cultural Rights When health care, housing, education, employment and economic rights are appropriately guaranteed by political rights, it would just be a matter of time before social and cultural rights are fruitfully conferred or enjoyed. But of course it is often those people who are deprived of their human rights who are least able to speak up for them selves.

Even Mexicans who do not support him would probably agree that he was targeted for prosecution because he was the front-runner in the polls. All modern constitutions, therefore, contain regulatory provisions for the governance. What is required is a socially conscious will to equitably apportion the work required for smoothly carrying out the functions of society.

If people are invested with political rights, they have to be clearly told about their duties as citizens. Without the guiding principles, there would be discordant notes.

Human Rights, Democracy and Freedom

We are concerned with the present and the future and if we can go the moon, certainly we can make our brothers and sisters read and write, develop skills which would be true liberation.

Liberty of equality or any type of political right is meaningless if a section of people to be for ever consigned to penury.

What is required is a passion for social justice. To invest in human resources is to reap the benefits for all. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile. I believe the demonstrations and protests taking place in Tibet reflect reaction to repression.

Unity of mankind The world today largely presents a different picture from what it was at the beginning of the 20th century. The framers of the constitution must take into consideration the unity or diversity of the people and should forge values which would hold them together.Human Rights & Democracy The Foreign & Commonwealth Office Report Presented to Parliament human rights, under three broad themes: democratic values and the rule of law; human rights for a stable world; and strengthening the rules-based international system.
