Human Rights

 

Human rights are defined as the inalienable freedoms of action and freedoms from harm that every individual holds in equal quality and quantity with every other individual without regard to arbitrary distinctions such as race, religion, wealth, gender, nationality, etc.  Human rights pertain to individuals, not to groups of people.  

 

The scope of human rights is limited to the extent that the exercise of human rights by one individual must not interfere with the human rights of another.  

 

An important feature of human rights is that they are the exclusive property of each individual. In particular, governments do not possess and therefore cannot “grant” human rights to anyone. Governments may give legal sanctions to groups of people such as corporations and trade unions, but such sanctions are not human rights. 

 

Although they cannot grant human rights, democracies, whose purpose is to serve the best interests of the people, are obligated to secure and uphold the human rights of the people.
