1. A right is something a person is allowed to do without consequences.
2. Universal rights are world wide
3. Age, age is an important factor. For example, people of Australia aren’t allowed to vote until the age of 18
4. Another example, women weren’t allowed to vote before 1920, they were excluded from the vote
5. Rights are set to tell others what they can do freely, to a certain extent. Laws are rules that are put down so people don’t do stuff against human rights.
What do we already know about rights?
Every human has them, they are an option and everyone gets them automatically at birth. Rights have been around for thousands of years becoming more and more important, relevant and better. In the time when the pyramids were being built and there were thousands of slaves, people had close to no rights. If you were lucky and were in with the right crowd, you might get a few rights. Some rights are just simply natural rights, in which people except is wrong and what should be done, for example, people knew it was wrong to kill, so they didn’t.
As the years went by more and more rights were being introduced. More people were happy with what they were allowed to do
Give us some examples of rights.
You have the right to vote, say no. You have the right to your own opinion
How have rights changed over the last three thousand years. Places, dates… (What does this tell us about rights over time?) (Could be two paragraphs)
Humans have gained more rights, like the right for women to vote, and eventually black people to vote. Everyone became more and more equal.
How does place effect rights?
Places are important when coming to the placement of rights, for example, in places where there is war people don’t get the opinion in freedom or in some cases their own say. And in Australia, there is no reason for rights to be invalid. They just work out, well.
How useful are written rights… but then again what do we have?
