What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti

9672 ratings | 859196 views
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-are-the-universal-human-rights-benedetta-berti The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights. Lesson by Benedetta Berti, animation by Sarah Saidan.

I am against the human rights because it promotes democracy as a morally good system in article 21, which it is not and forcing social security in article 22.

AM FROM THE SMALLEST REGION FROM INDONESIA, I WAS A STUDENT WHO WAS LEAVING IN THE SEMESTER 5. A NUMBER OF COUNTRIES. I MEAN A GROUP OF LAW ENFORCEMENTS. HAVE BEEN DOING CONFIGURATION TO ME OR THERE ARE CONSCIOUS TOOLS IN MY BODY. I FEEL THERE'S A CONSCIOUS EQUIPMENT IN MY BODY THAT WORKS TO SEND A VOICE AND A PICTURE OF MY ACTIVITIES, THAT ARE AIM TO DO ANTI HUMAN ACTIVITIES FROM THE MEMBERS OF THE STATE INTELLECTIVE AGENCY (BIN). DO IT. LAW ENFORCEMENT IN NORTH SUMATERA IS INVOLVED IN SUCH INFUSION ACTION. SUMATERA UTARA (MEDAN) BECOME ONE OF THE PLACES WHEN I DO NOT FREQUENTLY HAPPEN AND INCLUDE ME. I STILL HOLD TO SURVIVE MY INJURY AND SUCCESSFUL EQUIPMENT IS STILL IN MY BODY. I WAS ABOUT THE ANTI-HUMAN BREAKING START FROM AROUND MY HOUSE TO THE PLACE OF MY CAMPUS. ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS I WAS TREATING THE CONDITION DONE BY THE INDONESIAN INTELLIGENCE MEMBER. MAYBE THIS EVENT MAKES ME THINK THAT LAW IN MY COUNTRY STILL LESS POPULAR FROM COMMUNITY THINKING BUT THE INDONESIAN COUNTRY IS A STATE OF LAW AND LAW IN MY STATE VERY FAIR, BUT IT WAS ONLY MY THOUGHT. I UNTIL NOW FEEL CAREFUL IS IT STILL THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GIVE JUSTICE TO ME. OR MAYBE PROTECT ME BECAUSE I CANNOT FIGHT AGAIN. I TASTE MY STRUGGLE ONLY KNOWN BY GOD. I NEVER CONSUME SLEEPING PILLS THAT I BUY FROM APOTICS, AS MUCH 20 POINTS. ASSEMBLY NOT THE FUNDAMENTAL I NATURALLY, I FEEL WITH DRINKING MY SLEEP PROBLEM WILL FINISH BUT THE SUCCESS TOOLS ARE STILL WORKING IN MY BODY. AND SHOULD STILL HAVE A BREAK. I AM A CHRISTIAN RELIGION AND I BELIEVE TO GOD AND I ALWAYS PRAY TO GOD AT THE TIME OF PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING THIS WELL BY USING THE SUCCESS TOOL TO DAMAGE MY THOUGHTS. I THINK OF MY STATE DEMOCRATIC BUT I WAS RUNNING AWAY IN DEMOCRATIC OR HUMAN CATEGORIES.

SWEEDI SWEEDI (1 month ago)
Hey! to all . My name is Nabil Saroui, I am 29 years old and I am from Morroco. I have a son here in sweden with Swedish citizenship, his mother is swedish. He is 3 years old and 6 months old and lives with his mother who is my ex wife. We both have a share custody of our son in the end of 2015 the migraction send me to my homeland . but his entire life he could only visit when he was 6 months in the first of 2016 when my wife and my son came to Morroco for the holiday in 2016 and she promised me if the migration takes a long time to get my paper ready They come back well to meet me again. as time went to sweden in 2012 as asylum seekers and in early 2014 i met my ex wife and from the night one we started dating and one year later our son was born. 11 days ago the police took me and took me to the prison over 5 month in the cell . worst deport and they do not give me the right . and now they have not give me a lawyer and they want to send me back to Switzerland 19 mars . and from switzerland to morocco . because of doubles law . how can they send me if I have my son here soon he well be 4 years old why they are the magine awer life . doblin law prevents it. I'm not a criminal or a terrorist, so why don't they give me a lawyer. I have all the rights to be with my son through the book and the law, but they make decisions that make them binding. I am a dad and he is my son, we should be together. They have already kept us separate for three years. You are my last hope and I believe in the media and human rights here or ther evrywhere . I ask you to answer me or do something about this because it is not right what they do for me and my son's future i will share my whole story with details with the media and i want to show people how unfair authorities have been in my case. I just want my son to grow by my side and have his father's love. We want our rights! I have attached some of the decisions that I have received from Sweden's migration and police. [email protected]

I think so that we need digital privacy in order to be comfortable in using technology. Privacy is important as long as it is used correctly and rightfully. So therefore, people need digital privacy, but also, illegal acts and mischievous deeds should be prohibited and inhibited through your own ego and conscience.

These rights can not work together. For example one can not assure everyone the right to social security whilst simultaniously respecting property rights. The base principle ( 1:24 ) seems pretty solid but many of the other rights just seem like someone just said "I think X is a good thing so it should be a right." It should be obvios that if rights or principles are written by such a way they can hardly be consistent. Pleas tell me if I am missing something and that (some of) those 24 rights can actually be derived from one base principle without contradictions or other flaws in logic.

'Human rights' is a phony idea. If it were true then we wouldn't have to attend school, or work for a living, or pay fake taxes and so on.....
Lee Maitland (3 months ago)
Most people need to understand that the universal declaration of human rights is exactly that, a declaration. So while yes, it is not law, and yes, many governments, organisations and individuals ignore them, this should not deter us from striving towards a world where the declaration is law, and is not ignored to the benefit of all of us. The alternative is that we each become a monster to try and defeat a monster, do you know what really happens when you fight fire with fire? You get a bigger fire and lose everything. So start to learn about other cultures and your own histories, I am from the UK and was recently shocked to learn of the horrors my country has and its still causing on human beings, things they don't teach you at school. The same could be said of almost any situation where there is an 'us', and a 'them'. Bishop Tutu once said something like 'the moment you think you are more human than another, you yourself are dehumanised'. We are human beings, one species living between puddles on a small rock floating in space. We must learn to live in peace or life would be violent and worthless. The declaration of human rights is an important step in that direction and should be supported.

No human should be denied their rights. In 2018, there are people who are denied rights. People who think discrimination and racism are okay are sick. There are still countries in the west, including the US, who have still not yet completely denounced discrimination. To be the most powerful nation in the world, yet to have people being denied their rights is disgraceful. To have people being killed by a law made over 200 years ago, when we were fearing invasion by one of the most powerful nations is disgraceful. I am a 12 year old and I know this. You all should too.

YOU are sick for claiming that reality is not reality but ideology, that beings/races are not beings but "ideologies" , that their speech & sight & behavior is "ism" (ideology") just bc you can't categorize them. YOU ARE SICK for you try to categorize Truth instead of accepting & tolerating each and every "unequal" peoples in existence.

Aiah Zohar (5 months ago)
What I most agree with in this presentation is that "human rights" is (just) an idea. Just because many of us value it doesn't mean it's objectively or universally true. From a survey of history and nations' government systems, it should be obvious human rights ARE privileges and they CAN be revoked. Governments do it all the time--both to their own citizens and to foreign citizens. The reason "it" gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice is because, as with many human concepts, the idea is incompatible with the physical nature. Nature is not "just" or "fair" and has no obligation to mold the universe to satisfy human wants. All human beings are NOT born equal in dignity and rights because "dignity" is merely a perspective and rights, if they were naturally occurring and universal, like gravity, wouldn't need laws to enforce them. Videos, like this one, that argue some abstract human conception is true outside of some people's desires are the main reason I've stopped watching/listening to TED Talks. Please just stick to what the best hard, international evidence shows to be true--not just what feels good or sounds good.

Human rights are not "western" laws. Human rights are rights which every human being deserves to have! In some countries you are killed if you don't believe in that particular religion and you tell me human rights are nonsense? What are you smoking? Your religious laws should not be applied because most of them deprive people of freedom. I guess most of you complaining in the comments were raised in a society where having access to school is your right, where be free to express yourself is a right, to be innocent till proved guilty is a right! Don't forget that we still have to try in order to present a positive change but by complaining under a Youtube video won't change anything! To give a great example, activists fight against child marriage. With your logic, we shouldn't stand up against it because it is not objective. But every child has the right to dream and be free and not have a lifelong trauma because of cultural or religious norms.

Also big government destroys culture. If government cares for people from cradle to grave then people slowly care less for one another. We take care of parents far less. We care for our children far less. We take care of one another far less. Because government is supposedly already doing it. So much more to that as well.
kingogkingswoodz (6 months ago)
You do not have a right to education. Ridiculous! Government is force. If you cant do it to another person the government cant do it to another person. You never have a right to someone elses labour. Negative freedoms are what governments whom are just, protect. Positive freedoms are for the individual to earn on their own. In that way its fair and moral. Negative rights are defended snd positive rigjts require force to provide you with them. A negative right you have outside of government. Rights are about moral human interaction which leads to the best outcomes for all people. Government only exists in proper context to protect against those who initiate force against people or their property. Positive rights all begin with government using force against some people to give its loot to other people for political favour. The proper achievement of positive rights are via i dividuals through hard work smarts and drive gaining positive rights on their own. No use of force required.

At 3:37 , individual rights are far more important than group rights. The individual right to own a land, to have freedom of opinion, to own a gun...etc it is in no surprise that individuals not groups need to be protected. Western society puts individual thinking over group think. Group think often lead to tyrrany. Sadly today's western countries are in near of losing the term "western"

I thinl thw mere fact universal rights is created by ONLY western countries makes it BY DEFENITIONNA WESTERN HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER and not an international one... Cairo released the same human rights charter a few years after the UN representing the IOC or all muslims in the world from all major islamic majority countries (leaving some other minor muslim communities) but it can be considered MORE universal then the western one as it concerns MORE PEOPLE and MORE countries signed this charter feom east to west from north to south in every continent except america and europe and australia. So by demogratic figures Thw unibersal rights charther is the one from cairo. Not western one.
