Unit 1

Kaie: 

The declaration of human rights declares the basic rights every person is entitled to. It says that all people are equal and have to be treated equally.

The declaration is necessary because that is the way humans are – we need certain laws and regulations to coexist peacefully. History has shown as that without those rules some people just can not act civilized.

Of course all the points in the declaration are important but the article 16 seemed essential for me because it seems to me that violation of this point still often occurs in many societies.

Alar:  

The declaration says that all human beings are born free, they are free, they have the right to life, freedom, they are equal before the law and are protected by law, nobody is guilty before it is ruled so by court, everyone has the right to travel, men and women of full age have the right to marry, everyone has the right to own property, everyone has the freedom of thought, conscience and religion and the right to express their attitude, everyone has the right to take part in government, the right to work, healthcare, wellbeing, education, participate in cultural life.

These are important in a civilised society because they are the foundation of civility and human relationships. They help to keep order in society and keep it functioning. They give people equal right for their everyday life.
I think that the most important are right to life, freedom and protection by law for all human beings because they grant the basic needs for people to live. I think that these make the fundament of human rights.
Alar:

The Declaration of Human Rights says that everybody must be treated equal and anybody shouldn’t be harmed.

These legislations are important in a civilized society because without them, it would be anarchy in the world. I think civilized society, as we know it nowadays, is based on Declaration of Human Rights.

The most important for me is Article 3 because it influences me the most. Also I think it is most important at all.

Careelika:

 These legistlations are important to ensure that every person has a livable life and his/hers basic  rights are not being ignored.

  The most important legistlations to me are

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. – I have the same rights as everybody else and I am free in my decisions.

No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. – I am not being treated in a cruel or degrading way.

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. – I have the right to express my ideas without being disapproved.

Everyone has the right to education. Education is free.  – I have the right to attend school without having to pay for it.

Helen:

The declaration of human rights say that it is necessary to protect human rights. We need to obey the law to have a peaceful and friendly society, where there is no torturing and nobody feels fear or dearth.

These legislations are important in a civilised society because everybody has a right to be treated equally, everybody has a right to think and express their emotions. Without a law that protects people from unrightful behavior, there would soon be a rebellion against tyranny and oppression.
The most important legislations to me are article 1, which say that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, and article 4, which say that no one shall be held in slavery or servitude. These legislations are important to me because everybody should be treated equally, not based on their race, belief, sex or age. Nobody should suffer from slavery. It is humans torturing.
