Importance of Human Rights
Human rights have been at the forefront of news and politics throughout history and even more within the recent weeks. The need for basic human rights throughout the nation and globally is shifting and changing, more way than others, in a regressive manner. It is important to understand what rights are available in various countries and how they many or have changed throughout history.
The meaning of rights is “the freedom of doing something that is morally correct and is legal.” Human rights are defined as “rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status.” Human rights definition also includes “the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.” In various decisions online, in the news, and in print, we see these definitions being questioned when unnecessary; if these basic rights are provided to all, then why do we have discussion and case studies where these rights are at risk?
The importance of human rights is in place to keep humanity surviving. Human rights are needed to ensure basic needs are met, protect from abuse and societal corruption, allow for freedom to practice any religion of choice, freedom to speech, expression, and love, access to education and work opportunities, environmental protection and ultimately to hold the government accountable when these needs are not met. Knowing the importance of human rights should imperative to protecting oneself from the unknown and known injustices of the world.
