...The concept of Universal Human Rights is a fairly new conception in human history. Rights are not the same thing as social or cultural norms, which can be used to oppress minority interest and be fundamentally unfair to individuals. The beginnings of this concept can be traced back to the Enlightenment Era of the mid 17th through the 18th century. The formal international consensus of this idea did not take effect until after World War II, when the United Nations (U.N.) adapted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) on December 10, 1948 establishing an international standard of human rights. Although the majority of member nations of the U.N. agreed on this resolution, there where nations that argued against it. Thus the question still persist today, Are human rights universal? I believe that they are.
Humans use morals and ethics to determine “right” from “wrong” on an individual as well as a cultural basis. An individual belief of right and wrong is derived from life long experiences; and influenced by culture, religion, parents, schools, relationships, etc. Cultural beliefs of right and wrong are a consensus of those beliefs in a nation or region, which can, and do vary widely between different cultures. These concepts also vary over time periods, influenced by new technologies, new concepts, and new laws, as well as...
... “Can you imagine? I mean to say, here you have a city with the world’s most pathologically aggressive drivers -- who in other circumstances would be given injections of valium from syringes the size of basketball jumps and confined to their beds with leather straps -- and you give them an open space where they can all go in any of thirteen directions at once. Is that asking for trouble or what?”
Interspersed are salient comments about traveling on European trains. “There is no scope for privacy and of course there is nothing like being trapped in a train compartment on a long journey to bring all those unassuageable little frailties of the human body crowding to the front of your mind – the withheld fart, the three and a half square yards of boxer shorts that have somehow become concertinaed between your buttocks, the Kellogg’s corn flake that is unaccountably lodged deep in your left nostril,”. . .and rude comments about the Swiss: “What do you call a gathering of boring people in Switzerland? Zurich.”
He reveals some funny stories about himself. “I had no gift for woodworking. Everyone else in the class was building things like cedar chests and oceangoing boats and getting to play with dangerous and noisy power tools, but I had to sit at the Basics Table with Tubby Tucker and a kid who was so stupid that I don't think we ever learned his name. We just called him 'Drooler.' The three of us weren't allowed anything more...
Gender, age, race, and disabilities fuel people’s judgments (“Understanding
Prejudice”). Of Mice and Men is filled with good examples of discrimination in America
during the 1920’s. Lennie, Crooks, and Curley’s wife are the major examples.
Not many people have heard of ableism. It is the discrimination against people
with disabilities (“disabled feminists”). Lennie Small suffers from this. He has social
prejudice for being disabled. Without George, Lennie has a hard time socially interacting
with others. He often gets left behind at the bunk house and left out of the card games the
other men play. His poor memory, his stutters, and his likes for soft things show his
disability. He acts like an innocent child (“Shmoop”). People don’t always understand his
disability. Especially in the 1920’s when this story took place. “If he finds out what a
crazy bastard you are, we won’t get no job,” (“Of Mice and Men”). People with
disabilities did not get jobs very offend back then. The only person who seemed to
understand Lennie was George. Some people couldn’t accept their friendship (“Shmoop”).
Racism is a more population form of discrimination. In Of Mice and Men, Crooks
is a victim of racial bias. Crooks is left out of most of the activities the other men take
part in. He doesn’t get invited to go out to town with the men and never is asked...
...When God created man, he also created other living creatures and every living creature has their own right to be on this planet. However, we humans being the superior in power and thoughts, somehow forget these things most of the time. Some people think that animals do deserve the rights as we humans to live; while other thinks that they are more for food and medical research.
Animals, like any other living creature also have the same feelings and experience the same depth of love and pain like we humans. If you careful notice, all pets, irrespective of being a bird or an animal, when loved deeply, they return their love in many folds.
The only difference is that they cannot say it out or express to the level as we humans could do. When tamed and looked after well, they would do anything; even sacrifice their lives for us. Such pure and true is their love for their masters, that many a times, humans do not realize.
Most of the time, on seeing an animal, people are the thought of either harming them fearing the danger, or think of killing them. What does one gain when they do this kind of act? They are just being taken for granted and various acts are performed that in fact tortures the animals both physically and mentally.
There were times when horses pulled carriages, dogs herding sheep, and many other animals that have helped in building homes and shelters and supporting families. However with the advancing of time, things have...
...Human Rights Study Questions
1. Under the heading “Labour Rights as Human Rights” on page 134 of reading 1 (“Labour Rights as Human Rights in the Age of Globalization”), the authors assert that “there are two principal manners to conceive of labour rights.” In the two paragraphs which immediately follow that statement, the authors list different rights that are encompassed under each of these two approaches. Please identify FOUR kinds of labour rights emphasized under the first approach, and FOUR kinds of labour rights included under the second approach. (W1)
First Principle: Labour rights are often depicted as a subset of the body of civil rights and political freedoms. The state’s role in defending worker’s rights, but workers also need to be protected from the limits of that state. Labour rights are understood by comprising: i) freedom of association ii) freedom from sexual harassment iii) “ discrimination iv) right to human dignity Second Principle: A broader outlook on labour rights. Relies on the state, but also on an active role on the part of the citizenry to advance those entitlements. Based on economic, social and cultural rights. i) the right to work ii) the right to strike iii) the right to...
...learned from history about how to deal with human rights violations? Your answer should make reference to at least 3 historical case studies.
To fully understand what the question is asking we must first define what is meant by ‘Human Rights’ and what constitutes a violation of these rights. Once this essay has defined what a human rights violation is it shall then go on to describe periods in history where there has been a clear breach of a peoples human rights and describe what society has learned from these events.
Peter Baehr, An author and professor of Human Rights from the Netherlands defines human rights as “internationally agreed values, standards or rules regulating the conduct of states towards their own citizens and towards non-citizens…Human rights tell states what they may not do, but also what they are supposed to do.”(Baehr, 1999. P1). Human rights as we know them came about at the end of World War two as a consequence of the reign of the National Socialists in Germany who killed more than six million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and political opponents. It was the greatest scale of fundamental human rights violations in modern times. The acts committed in this period of time helped permanently etch into the minds of the world the true meaning of what ‘genocide’ and ‘crimes...
Human rights are protected under Australian law in three key ways; statute law, the constitution and common law. It could be argued that if Australia adopted a bill of rights, human rights would be more clearly defined, consistent in all states and territories and more easily understood.
Human rights are protected in Australia through statute law. Statute law refers to laws made by parliament, also known as legislation. Moreover statute laws set up administrative bodies whose responsibility it is to carry out the workings of these acts.Occasionally, judges are required to interpret legislation or make decisions about the application of statute law. These decisions will have binding impacts on human rights protection. Examples of statute laws that protect human rights in Australia include the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW), the Sex-Discrimination Act 1984 (cth) and the Racial-Discriminations Act 1975 (cth). The HREOC is one of the administrative bodies that are extremely effective in protecting human rights. An example of this involved the case of Scarlett Finney in 1998. In this case they found that the Hills Grammar School discriminated against Scarlett Finney on the ground of her disability by refusing her enrolment to the kindergarten class at the school in 1997 in breach of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (cth). The...
...Human Rights – Child Recruitment
Across the world tens of thousands of boys and girls are denied their basic human rights, these children are abducted from their homes, schools or on the streets. Child recruitment is defined by the Paris Principles and Guidelines on Children Associated with Armed Forces or Armed Groups as ” the use of any children under the age of 18 who has been recruited by a state or non-state armed group to be used to participate in combat or in other circumstances used as spies, messengers, servants, human shields, suicide bombings or to lay landmines”. Many of the girls that have been abducted for recruitment are subjected to sexual assault and they are all at risk of death. Child recruitment takes place in over 18 different countries and it has become a global issue with many countries beginning to take widespread action. When evaluating the effectiveness of legal and non legal measures in addressing child recruitment both domestically and internationally it becomes clear that international recognition and enforceability is limited whilst in Australia there are many mechanisms to ensure the problem is contained.
Internationally Child Recruitment remains a large problem. Whilst it is recognised as a problem a lack of enforceability means that organisations such as UNICEF ( The United Nations Children Fund) have little or no power in countries that accept the recruitment of children to be used for work or the...
