ANALYTICAL STUDY OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND ITS VALUES IN THE WORLD
A person's human rights cannot be taken away. No State, group, or individual "[has] any option to engage in any action or to play out any protest centered on the destruction of any of the privileges and opportunities set out thus," according to the UDHR's final article. This is not to say that abuses and violations of fundamental rights don't occur. We frequently hear horrific stories of homicide, violence, bigotry, hunger, homelessness, destitution, abuse, vagrancy, and segregation on TV and in the news. However, the Universal Declaration and other human rights agreements go beyond what is expected of them. They are fundamental legal requirements. Many nations have incorporated these criteria into their own laws in order to uphold their commitments to universal basic freedoms. This opens the possibility for people to have a dispute resolved by a court in their own nation. People from some countries may also have the choice to protest the violation of their basic rights before a United Nations council of experts, which would then provide its opinion. When people are aware of the existence of core liberties and ideals, real longterm progress can be realized.
