Equal Dignity -- برابرى درمنزلت


Equal Dignity  --  برابرى درمنزلت
by 12 Petals

Human dignity is the foundational concept of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and as such it is a defining characteristic attributed to living human beings. The core belief of human rights is the belief that every person should be treated equally and with dignity irrespective of their circumstances. Concisely, an individual has inherent inviolable rights, and this expression signifies an innate right to respect.

Human dignity is the ultimate value that makes the human rights principles logical and consistent, as well as giving these principles overall coherence.  Subsequently, dignity presents fundamental rights and commands responsibilities.

Viewed from this perspective, no person should be treated or regarded as a ‘subject’. All human beings are equal in dignity irrespective of their gender, age, ethnicity, or social status. Every society needs to be committed to upholding equal human dignity. And lastly, of course, this notion of treating people equally and with dignity need not and should not be construed as treating them identically.

The concept of equality in dignity holds to ethics of equality, cherishing all human beings in light of their common humanity.

منزلت انسانى و برابرى درمنزلت

از ويژگى هاى بارزى كه به نوع بشر نسبت داده شده، مقام و منزلت انسانى است كه مفهوم اساسى اعلاميه حقوق بشر، بر مبناى آن قرار دارد. جوهر اصلى باور حقوق بشر بر اين مبنا است كه همه افراد- بر كنار از شرايط و موقعيتى كه دارند، باهم برابرند.

به بيان ديگر، هر فرد از حقوق ذاتى خدشه ناپذيرى برخوردار است ، و در اعلاميه حقوق بشر، اين حق فطرى، مورد اهميت بسيار قرار گرفته است.

منزلت انسانى، چنان ارزش والائى است كه به اصول حقوق بشر پايائى و اعتبار منطقى مى بخشد. نهايتأ، مقام و منزلت انسانى، افزون بر شناساندن و ارائه حقوق اوليه، مسؤليت متقابل را نيز ، همزمان،مطالبه مى نمايد.

از اين منظر كه بنگريم، هيچ فردى نبايد بعنوان يك " رعيت يا بنده " قلمداد گردد. افراد بشر، عليرغم سن، قوميت، جنسيت يا موقعيت اجتماعى شان، با هم برابرند و هر جامعه متعهد به پاسدارى از اين حق مسلم، مى باشد. البته برداشت از برابرى و رعايت منزلت انسان، نبايد اين باشد كه لزومأ يك يك افراد بشر را، بدون در نظر گرفتن شخصيت و تفاوت هاشان، يكسان دانست.

مفهوم بزرگداشت منزلت انسان،كه سخت به اخلاق و روحيه برابرى مربوط است، همه افراد بشر را در پرتو انسانيت جارى بين خودشان، گرامى مى دارد.
