What does "Human Rights" actually mean?
Every human being on Earth has 30 basic kind of rights, listed in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
, created in 1948 by the United Nations in order to promote "universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms".
At least on paper.
The reality is very often far away from what proclamed in the Universal Declaration and a big percentage of human population can't enjoy these rights at all.
The right to life, the right to freedom, the right to a fair treatment while in a court, the right to privacy, the right to a nationality, the right to freedom of thought, the right to freedom of speech, the right to social security, the right to education are among the basic rights that should be self-evident for everybody.
That's understood, right?
