Human Rights – Legal Rights

Human rights that have generally been accepted, although they too are now at risk of being lost.

Legal Freedom to:
Peaceful assembly
Vote
Recognition as a person
Legal Equality and Recourse
Fair and Public Trial
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Seek asylum in another country
Nationality
Social Order

The United States was founded on the belief of equality.  The right to assemble with others was essential to the beginning of our country.  Whether that assembly occurs indoors, or outdoors, should not matter.

The right to vote.  That has been debated since the beginning of the country, as to who should have the right to vote.  All humans should.  Regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity.  The only exceptions should be murders and sex offenders.  At one point, voting was considered a holiday.  Perhaps we should go back to that since so many companies refuse time off for employees to drive 20+ miles away to vote.  Or, create an online system that only takes a few moments.

All people should be recognized as people.  There has been much recent legislation to deny women as people, and take away their rights.

More prominent legal issues revolve around more serious matters.  Social order is vital to allow human rights to exist for all.  This requires an innocent until proven guilty justice system.  That justice system is required to grant people proper representation in a fair and public trail within a reasonable amount of time.  Not years or decades later.  Nor, should it punish those whom have been victimized.

No person should be denied their basic human rights based on their nationality.  Yet, this occurs every day.

Humans rights bring equality.  Those who demand their rights, while denying others equal rights, are hurting themselves as well as the person they are denying personhood to.

Some people like to say life isn’t fair.  We as people, as humans, should try to make it as fair as possible.  Treat others the way we want to be treated.  Raise others up, don’t trample them in the mud on the rise to the top.  There is no point standing on the mud flats with no one beside you.  Help them up with you, and bask in the beauty of the sunshine.
