Sally Cronin’s book in process, The R’s of Life, offers us a chance to consider how fortunate we are in the western world and provides an opportunity to feel gratitude. Chapter Ten outlines some very sobering statistics regarding rights that most of us take for granted…
In the last chapter I took a look at the United Nations Bill of Rights with regard to our legal entitlements under the charter. As with all the rights in the bill there is a great deal of variation between nations, and also internally within cultures who settle in new countries.
In this chapter I am going to cover the personal freedoms and rights that are included in the 30 elements of the bill. Many of these freedoms we take for granted and there are some of us who also exploit them. They all come with some form of obligation from us to ensure that we are worthy of these rights.
Chapter Ten – Rights and our Personal Freedoms.
Everyone is entitled to protection from interference in their privacy, family, home or correspondence or from attacks on honour and reputation.
Good luck with this one in the day and age…
