Human Rights

Recommended Posts

For some reasons, the word right, or term "a Right" is not discussed in public forums. And when mentioned often involves advocacy of one view over another. Petty politics is ferociously debated.


My view of rights is nihilistic, that they don't exist. I expressed this view sarcastically after my prof. asked us to state one right we hold dear. I said "I have a right not to be offended."

Of course, that didn't fly well with her. I did get a laugh.

My point is we should know our human rights even if we believe they don't exist, denied.
