    Default What does human rights mean to you?

    What does human rights mean to you?
    The media had asked for an answer from the public that it is better
    for the silent majority to speak up and discuss among ourselves for a better future.

    1. Why must you know about human rights?

    2. At what age must you know about human rights?

    3. What are the implications of human rights in the country you live in?

    4. Is there any interesting things you must know about human rights in Singapore?

    5. What exactly are human rights and why it is so important to being a
    lawful citizen of the country you live in?

    6. Must we be better educated in order to know and understand these rights?

    7. There seems to be an example of an exchange for rights to security and
    economic well-being, to afforable health care and education in exchange for
    freedom of expression and unqualified freedom of assembly. Is this true now
    as there isn't any more affordable health care or economic well-being for the poor.
    If you don't work, you have to suffer or die, so to say.
    (Please correct me if I am wrong here)

    Should this be the only son this parents have and is depending on him when old age, shouldn't the garmen provide them until they move on..

    Our discussion will not have any effect on the garmen policy so i think is a waste of time to discuss.

    We have aSpeaker corner, does that consider HUMAN RIGHT.

    will this thread evolve into a politics thread and be closed later?

    cannot talk about religion, politics in CS is a form of human rights?

    If all things are going to the form of reality
    we cannot live in prayer and constant contemplation.

    For only in contemplation of all created thoughts and things
    only then can we slowly been taking steps so we may ascent to
    the Creator of all things.

    Humans always fight for rights and it is only a normal group behavior.

    But what lies beneath is that some activists have their bad or commercial or political motives.

    Hence, do what you think is right, but dont follow what others think is right.

    What is right or wrong is judged by Heaven. Not humans.

    On the dot when we only learn to see the ugliness we see in others.
    In fact it is a reflection of our own nature.

    In today's context and lifestyle what Aristole
    told us holds seeming truth.

    That "the ultimate value of life depends
    upon awareness and the power of contemplation
    rather than upon mere survival".

    ------------------------------------------
    "Those who when young show no
    respect to their elders achieve nothing
    worth mentioning when they grow up.
    And merely to live on, getting older
    and older, is to be a useless pest"
    - Confucianism

    We are not what we know.
    We are what we are willing to learn.

    Therefore isn't things like human rights
    are the thoughts of human beings -
    a worklife culture?

    The integretion and the ability to
    achieve worklife balance are the goals
    of human beings.

    Isn't Ultimate Reality really want to see
    people with low spirits where their days
    appears dark, when their work becomes
    monotonous and so on?

    ---------------------------------
    Looks like to choose a balance
    in life is almost the same to having
    rights but what about the poverty
    driven masses around the world
    who are almost dying, don't they
    wants their rights too or their
    choice of lifestyle?

    worklife balance is a modern catchword....

    in reality humans' goals are as diverse as can be, that below a huge claim...

    In SG, human rights is wateva the garman give u lor!

    Wateva garman nvr give one all are not part of your human rights.

    And that translates to.... Traffic offence summon, ERP, GST, Income Tax, Road Tax, COE, ARF, TV license and whatnot are all HUMAN RIGHTS....

    Not to forget an increasingly competitive society & a stressful life....

    But of course, subsidy, grants, tax relief, oso HUMAN RIGHTS lor.... ( juz that nvr place as much emphasis on it onli)

    So, what's not HUMAN RIGHTS?? Eh, ang pow$$, pocket $$, salary$$, $$ to buy your camera.....

    Money makes the world goes round....
