Have you ever read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

fted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all

regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.” (UDHR)
