From time to time, we all witness or find ourselves in situations where our human rights are violated. In most cases, this happens because of ignorance, where the victims have no idea that their human rights are being violated. It is has become our mission to ensure that the law is observed for the good of everyone, and the first step of making that reality is to inform everyone what their fundamental rights are. We have so many countries, and even in each country, different states, counties, or provinces tend to have different laws. However, here are some basic human rights that you should know.
Human rights that you should know
As a human, you have the right not to be enslaved in any form. Under international law, every single human being is equal, and no one has precedence over another person. What this means is that no one shall force you to work or serve. It is your right to choose where you want to work. Also, unless you are volunteering, it is a mandate that you get compensated accordingly, especially as per an agreement prior to starting the work.
No police office, or any other representative of the federal government shall detain you without sufficient course and evidence to back it. In our modern society, this is one of the most abused human right, especially since the police tend to arrest people without any solid cause. If you find yourself in a situation where the police are trying to arrest you, make sure to give reasonable cooperation, but make sure that you ask what you are being charged of, and demand a good explanation as to why you are being arrested. Depending on the answer you get, make sure that you act rationally.
Right to movement
As a citizen of a given nation, you have the right to move to any place that you require, so long as it is not restricted by the owner. What this means is that you can leave one town and go to the next one freely without having restrictions. However, if you want to visit a private property, say a farm, always ask for permission from the owner. If you are turned down, do not forcefully enter as that would be breaking the law. It is always important to remember that we are all protected with the same law, and respecting personal property if making sure that the other person gets to enjoy their rights as well.
Where there is the law, there is order, and with order comes a lot of perks, perks that we sometimes take for granted. With so many nations in turmoil right now, broken economies, lack of patriotism and neglect of the rule of fair and just law, the results are clearly devastating. It is very crucial that everyone learns to respect the law and identify its importance in ensuring that everyone lives a happy life that is comfortable. Good news is that many people in the twenty-first century understand the law is necessary and adequately comply with it that is why we have thriving nations that lead by example. Just as a reminder, below are some of the importance of law and order.
The benefits of law and order
Equal access to opportunities
When there is proper law in place that allows every human being to exist as equals it becomes very easy for everyone to pursue the opportunities that they want. This is important because it means for everyone that they can do what they want in life. Same opportunities mean that everyone works hard to make their country better and equally contribute to their development.
The best ingredient that guarantees proper development is safety. When people know they are safe, and the same applies to their properties, it becomes easier to focus on innovation rather than worrying and focusing all their resources on protecting what they have. With a body like the police, and the judiciary working hand in hand to foster security, a country can be certain that its development is secured and provide comfortable living for all their citizens.
The law is very crucial when it comes to conflict resolution, and ensuring that everyone gets the best judgment. In most cases, when people have a dispute, without a proper system in place, they tend to use violence as a means to resolve, and in all the cases, the outcome isn’t usually fair. With the law in place, it becomes easier to resolve disputes and guide the involved individual to a fruitful future where they can focus on what is important to them.
Culture of fairness
When people know they have the law on their side, it becomes very easy for them to focus on what is important, and be fair in all their dealings. This is a great way to build a society that believes in prosperity that is made through hard work and determination.
