Many would assume that the sole purpose of law is to establish justice, which seems like a wonderful philosophical theory but is slightly difficult to follow. The struggle between law, order and justice has led to conflict and terrorism all over the world. Some of those struggles have been represented in the books The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and A Hanging by George Orwell.
His strengths were outlined throughout history as his ideas became an important part of modern law. For example, Locke’s ideas of the right to life, liberty, and property are considered fundamental rights in our society today with the vast majority agreeing that it is important. In addition, Locke’s idea of separating government powers is used in current day legal systems. On the other hand, his weaknesses and flaws within his theory supported a unpredictable and unstable government. By letting citizens control how people were punished for crimes without a higher power to set our guidelines for the offenses/punishments caused injustice in some cases as similar cases begin to vary in punishment.
“Time to Assert” contains several opinion based facts within the argument when describing how to deal with crime. Within “Time to Assert,” it comments, “A case like Michael Fay’s is important because it provides a chance to challenge an inhumane practice that ought not to exist anywhere” (Time to Assert 179). This quote from the editorial illustrates no true factual evidence and supports more of a biased argument that is heavily based on the editors opinions. The editorial implies no evidence that effectively helps with supporting the argument. According to “Time to Assert,” it explains, “The Fay case provides a legitimate opening for American citizens and companies to bring political and economic pressure to bear in the propagation of freedom and basic rights” (Time to Assert 180).
Human Rights What are Human Rights? Human Rights are commonly understood as being those rights which are inherent to the human being. The concept of human rights acknowledges that every single human being is entitled to enjoy his or her human rights without distinction as to race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Human rights are legally guaranteed by human rights law, protecting individuals and groups against actions which interfere with fundamental freedom and human dignity. They are expressed in treaties, customary international law, bodies of principles and other sources of law.
 Although the UDHR is a non-binding resolution, it is now considered by some to have acquired the force of international customary law which may be invoked in appropriate circumstances by national and other tribunals.  The UDHR urges member nations to promote a number of human, civil, economic and social rights, asserting
And this is the ultimate argument for debate on country-specific issues – even if the process in the UN itself results in nothing, the situation itself will get attention of millions. And, in case of human rights violations, attention often means pressure, and, consequently, progress. To conclude, both theoretical principles and practical application of the concept backs the UN human rights debate on country-specific issues. Firstly, it is a right thing to do because the UN has to supervise that its member states will honor their commitments to their citizens and their wellbeing. Secondly, this concrete discourse has real impact on the state in question, creating pressure on the governments to behave in compliance with the international human rights law by resulting in action taken by both the UN and the public.
The human rights is an issue that can only take up to one person to defend it. Moreover, the human rights allow people to have freedom and independence which basically is the ability to act, speak or think as one desires. Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.There are approximately thirty human rights as in this current date. Historically, Franklin Delano Roosevelt spoke about freedom and about the human rights in a speech called The “Four Freedoms Speech” around the 1940s in which it has been one of the speeches in history that has dramatically changed the independence of others as well as John F. Kennedy in the “Inaugural Address.
Important ideas such as Mary Wollstencraft's Vindication of the Rights of Women and other political movements appealed to the sections of society who had been denied the possession of political and civil rights earlier. The concept of rights had become a weapon to initiate or incite a political change. It can be argued that the conceptual prerequisites for the defense of human rights had long been in place, but the full Declaration of the doctrine of human rights only finally occurred during the 20th Century after the most atrocious violations of human rights during the Holocaust. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10th December 1948 and was explicitly motivated to ensure that no similar atrocities occur in future. Ironically, the war crimes of the United States of America in Hiroshima and Nagasaki didn’t face the same kind of criticism and no effective measures have been taken till today to prevent similar attacks.
In addition, it surveys the current state of the law on the arbitrability of international intellectual property disputes in a selection of countries. Although courts once often disapproved of party-driven dispute resolution that, in their eyes, circumvented judicial jurisdiction,
I feel that letting the free market create its own “regulations” through supply and demand is the best course of action in most cases. The greatest value he presented, that I could not agree more with, was that of respecting dissent. He stated, “A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of majority” (Throeau, n.d.). This is a great call to fight for what we believe in through any means possible. With the expansion of social media dissent and the ability to have your voice be heard is easier than ever.
The constitution guarantees every citizen to enjoy equally and exercise their fundamental freedom equally. This is extended to the available opportunities in the political, economic, cultural, and social environment. People should not be discriminated in relevance to their sex, age, race, health status, disability, or any other discriminatory element (Shen, 2017). The state should be at the forefront of protecting its citizens through a judicial process against and discriminatory act. All individuals should be accorded the right to freedom and security.
