The Declaration of Human Rights is a manifest that evolved from the founding of the United Nations in 1948. Whether or not it was meant by all UN participants as an achievable maxim for the post war world, it does remain a vital testimonial to the assumption that the people of the entire world should have access to the dignity of their species.
However, a cursory glance around the world today makes clear that the 30 articles contained within the declaration of Human Rights have, for the most part, been ignored, and are likely to remain ignored. It is imperative, therefore, that there is a concerted international effort to revive and revitalise the values of this essential document on behalf of the world population in general, but particularly for the many desperately needy who these articles were originally intended to protect.
The concept that all people, the weakest as well as the stronges have a right to the basic necessities of a civilised existence seems to be incontrovertibly and the reasonable ingredients of a fair society. Sad to say this apparently reasonable aim has never been achieved and, at present, it looks highly unlikely that it will ever be achieved.
In fact as a result of Acts of God, War, Corruption, Greed, Religious Fanatacism, the utter ruthlessness of those with power, as well as the general unfairness of life, increasingly fewer of the world`s population have the possibility to live their lives secure in the knowledge that, whatever else, they have their Human Rights. Furthermore, nine hundred million of the world`s population cannot read or write, so will never have the possibility of understanding them, let alone actually knowing of their existence.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is translated into 375 languages, there has never been a visual interpretation of this kind of the complete Declaration of Human Rights.
