HUMAN RIGHTS MORE THAN WORDS
The Human Rights are fundamental rights inherent or belong to each person just because she or he is a human being. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom of thought and expression, justice, peace and equality before the law.
The article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights is established “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. In the world, we have different International Organizations which promote the education and defense of Human Rights; for example: Human Rights Education Associates, The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Amnesty International, Carter Center, Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian law. Every Human Has Rights, and others.
However, the strong claims made by this doctrine about human rights continue to create considerable skepticism and debates about the content, nature and justifications of human rights in this day. In fact, the question of what is meant by a right is itself, kind of controversial and the subject of continued discussion.
Look at the history of mankind; from the past until today many wars have occurred because of intolerance in beliefs among humans. The humans rights are not an obstacle, they represent one of the essential elements of society. That is why the appropriate education should be based on the promotion of genuine dialogue, active tolerance, appreciation of diversity and respect for the dignity of life. All of these are pillars of society such doctrine taught by ULA Gandhi-King-Ikeda. We must also remember that peace is not the absence of conflict, but in the stage of life in which the human rights of all are respected.
I believe that people can live in harmony just with a little effort. I am not talking of a lovely utopia of peace, I am talking of a possible reality with the collaboration of all humans, and for that it is time to start educating and learning.
