Human Rights

For a society to function democratically requires more than majority rule, it requires that individual rights be protected—from the government or other members of society—and even extends to limits on the ‘tyranny of the majority’. The founders’ belief in individual rights led to the Bill of Rights. The movement towards fair human rights for all is culminated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
