What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-are-the-universal-human-rights-benedetta-berti The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights. Lesson by Benedetta Berti, animation by Sarah Saidan.

Gacha Eclipse: tell that EU aka article 13

SlashZ890: Human rights are subjective.

С последуюшим Выдумывание: UN should require all diplomats from member states around the world to take annual human right courses conducted by UN

Christine Mangal: does anyone knows when they went into schools

Vern Atkins: Well that was a lot of talk about nothing what are the actual human rights

1N73RC3P7OR: The only right you have is the one which you can defend!
Anyone that want's to have you accept his "right" is trying to get to your possessions!

LuisFrom Philippines: right

Dominick Gibbs: Something I dont have

Ben Kaufman: No human should be denied their rights. In 2018, there are people who are denied rights. People who think discrimination and racism are okay are sick. There are still countries in the west, including the US, who have still not yet completely denounced discrimination. To be the most powerful nation in the world, yet to have people being denied their rights is disgraceful. To have people being killed by a law made over 200 years ago, when we were fearing invasion by one of the most powerful nations is disgraceful. I am a 12 year old and I know this. You all should too.

John Brown: This "talk" does not help answer the question of what rights are or why they would be.

Kat Marker: Because people that are in power get power Hungary and abuse that at any chance that they get

Victoria Kister: 1:02 chinese flag is wrong

g4ngst4crizz4b: "rights" are distributive bits of justice thrown to the gaggle
You are legitimate... and don't need a glorified HOA staff with guns to make it not cost prohibitive.
Freedom is free. Anyone who charges is a fraud.

Noodly Appendage: Religion is probably the oldest form of universal human rights. Christianity is possibly the most successful and the most universal.

Leighton Julye: universal declaration of human right (udhr) ; then what happened

Aiah Zohar: What I most agree with in this presentation is that "human rights" is (just) an idea. Just because many of us value it doesn't mean it's objectively or universally true. From a survey of history and nations' government systems, it should be obvious human rights ARE privileges and they CAN be revoked. Governments do it all the time--both to their own citizens and to foreign citizens. The reason "it" gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice is because, as with many human concepts, the idea is incompatible with the physical nature. Nature is not "just" or "fair" and has no obligation to mold the universe to satisfy human wants. All human beings are NOT born equal in dignity and rights because "dignity" is merely a perspective and rights, if they were naturally occurring and universal, like gravity, wouldn't need laws to enforce them.

Videos, like this one, that argue some abstract human conception is true outside of some people's desires are the main reason I've stopped watching/listening to TED Talks. Please just stick to what the best hard, international evidence shows to be true--not just what feels good or sounds good.

Yash Kesari: Right to digital privacy is indeed needed!
However to access internet is not.

Sobia Sarwar: I can't understand?
