What are Human Rights? When do the rights of the group take precedence over individual rights? The most common example given is why it is not ok to yell "Fire!" in a crowded theatre.
Around the world, the Coronavirus pandemic has made it a constant balancing act for almost two years. Some countries take this a lot more seriously than others. Then there are opportunists who use the opportunity presented by any restrictions to their personal liberties as a way to rabble rouse. They use the opportunity to inflame. It doesn't necessarily have to be any really important issue, but it does help their cause of disruption if it is a visible symbol, like a mask. The intention is just to cause dissent and interject chaos into the environment and increase the differences between factions, and make them into directly opposing forces. Take a step back and watch. While this may give rise to the righteous emotions that come with fighting for a cause, it is often designed so that no resolution is possible, and a demand for escalation can make violence seem inevitable and necessary. Take a step back and look.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights lists thirty Human Rights. These are rights inherent to you just for being human. These are interesting: Article 28 says "Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized." and Article 29, which says in part, "Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible." Responsibility enhances your rights. But really, it comes down to caring about other people and your community. "Human Rights must be madea reality, not an idealistic dream.", L.
