“Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”
Permeable to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, reads: “Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”
Furthermore, Article 1 and 3 of this document read as follows, respectively: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights" and "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person."
To put the above matters into perspective, we are all equal and need to be treated equal before the law and based on our own respective paths to happiness, we have individual freedom.
Philosophy professor Aeon Skoble says, "Treating people as equals means that we should show equal respect for the choices they make. That means that, although we may disagree with others, we should respect their preferences for jobs, TV shows, music, etc... The legal system should show equal respect for persons by respecting their rights equally, not by interfering with the outcomes of people's choices. If we try to produce equality in some other fashion, we will necessarily violate people's freedom to choose."
