    I Am Concerned For America

    I believe we have lost our rights in this country. From the start of the Bush Administration, until today, we have given up all our freedoms--the right to protest against the govt. the right to impeach officials who are stomping on us--there was a time, when as a nation we...

    It Is A Moral Imperative That Every Human Being Has Inalienable Rights.........

    ..........and that these rights are protected by everyone else. In the defense of that person who is having their Rights infringed lies the freedom and dignity of everyone else. I sincerely wish people would get this in their heads! :)

    I also volunteer for several groups. But sometimes coming into work, with the boss I have, I think my office is being ran by slave drivers. Quite frankly it's frustrating on my part. Also being the youngest board member(I'm 20) for my foundation, does not make it any easier for...

    I think the universal declaration of human

    rights should be the international standard from which all laws should descend. If a state formulates laws contrary to this those laws can be challenged and disposed. An international passion for this declaration should be every human being's. It is crucial!

    and human wrongs. We have the rights clearly defined in the Declarations of Human Rights, published during the Revolution. What about human wrongs, where are they written about, in the Ten Commandments?

    that- rights. Something everybody is entitled to. They cannot be taken away from anyone and they are not dependent on any qualifications. Universal human rights make the world a far better, safer and more peaceful place to live and civilisation needs them.
