What are Human Rights

At the conclusion of our last broadcast on Grassroots Talks Radio show I was moved by one our co-host Selim as we talked about the topic of betrayal. While it started of focusing on relationships the discussion turned to being betrayed by the boss or business partner. It was very powerful and insightful. 

But all of a sudden it turned to betrayal of the government. Yes the system that we grow up trusting and depending on. It was were disturbing to face some of the points that came our of the talk.

I have always told that we have rights. Not just rights as a citizen but human rights. Several years ago I was asked to work with an organization to develop some short skits to address the subject of Human Rights. Take a look and ask your self if you are aware of the rights. What are Human Rights


#9 #10 Great wisdom to know that the value and extent of education for your child(ren) rests on you, the parent. It is so simple to say, yet it screams from the school bells that have now turned into buzzers and gongs.

#9 #10 One of my mentors had said once "You talk too much. You have too ears, but one mouth. God tells you to speak once, listen twice." I took these words to the heart, and became a lifelong learner. You're right, William. I wish parents would be so sensitive about this. Unfortunately, most of them leave the education of their kids to the schools.

#6 If only more parents had the same attitude and mental attributes this would be a very different world.. Once the thirst for knowledge is introduced, you will spend the rest of your life drinking parched from the cup. It only takes the right spark like my friend Selim.

#5 One of the most common lies in my country is that "people have been uneducated and made ignorant." Education is "one of the" government's responsibilities, but "main responsibility" of the individuals. I grew up in the same country, and people call me "The Walking Library," because nobody stopped me from reading, searching, exploring, and learning. My son goes to school, but as his father, it's me who is responsible for his education foremost, not his teachers. And if those teachers are somehow wrong about something, I would emphasize it, too! When I was teaching English classes, my students (and they were adults, not kids or teens) would ask me "Can we talk English as good as you do?" I would always come up with the same answer: "If you don't want to learn, nobody can teach you. If you do, you will learn despite me!"

#3 I wish I were wrong in most sincerity, but do not feel this is the nature of the majority. I truly believe we are being manipulated by our leadership creating divisive issues in race, sex and religion to name a few. Unfortunately the skills to do so are well honed and most good people do not anticipate treachery. There is simply no greater villain than those who would divide us in hatred and mistrust. We really can not blame our leadership or media, as they would have no power if we failed to follow. There is a better way, we must simply step off the path and hate no more.

#3 William, Unfortunately you are correct. I believe that if we just role over and take it we would be just as guilty as those who denie us. As a wise man once said. I would rather die for something rather than live for nothing. Thank you for sharing your views.

Human rights is the fair, ethical and humane treatment of individuals regardless of sex, religion or race. It is a myth of course. An ideal we aspire to as a culture, but as a species we do not act upon. The proportion of our resources devoted to destruction and hatred demonstrates this truth all to clearly..
