According to Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty”

The Most Important Human Rights

The right to Life

The right to life is the essential right of human which is secured by the law. The general statement in Kazakhstani, Russian, Belarus and other constitution states that it is fundamental right of the human. The right to life by its nature means that no person can be intentionally deprived from life. The right to life means that the state has the obligation to take all measures to secure the person’s life from any threats and the only the state in its competence has the right to appoint the extreme penalty of the law- the death penalty.

The right to Education

The right to education is one of the human rights and has to establish as important right. All people have right to have education and in this sphere, society should not discriminate the people related with his or her religion, race, gender and etcetera. The right to education is one of the most fundamental right but also human right. The right of education helped people to develop their human personality and respect human rights and human freedoms. Education helps people to become a man as an individual freedom, change the thinking also it will help to become a smart. The education must be available, accessible and adaptable. If people to study education, the education must be benefit able and knowledgeable. The human rights education is the deepest foundation of the modern human rights and the human rights education for all. The right to human rights education is commonly influences on economic social and cultural rights.

The right to Freedom

As it written in Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the basic principle of freedom, justice and peace in the world is recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family. In our point of view it should be the important part of right, because without a freedom it difficult to live a full life. Also, it difficult to express own opinion or thoughts, we can improve our self and our environment, just when we have a freedom for life.

The right to Equality

“”””Maybe equality is a right, but no power on earth will make it a fact”””” (Balzac). Is the establishment of equality possible? Some people see it as a huge benefit and are sure that it really exists. Others argue that in modern society the development of equality is impossible.

Equality is the situation of people in society, ensuring their equal relationship to the means of production, the same political and civil rights, equality. Whereas, right is the opportunity to do anything protected by the state and legitimized. The essence of this statement Balzac is that equality is a right, but a society in which everyone is equal cannot exist.

People are born unequal: each child has certain innate abilities that distinguish him/her from others. In addition, the history of known cases of discrimination against people in appearance – the theory of Hitler about the superiority of the Aryan race, the conflict of “”””black and white”””” in America, where the Indians still are forbidden to leave their reservations.

Thus, equality can prevent revolution and social conflict in society, but the desire of people to improve their social status, unequal distribution of income and power make it unrealistic.

Right to own property

Among the most important human rights is right to own property. It is not a secret that historically people in USSR did not have right to acquire property. This was made for the sake of equality of the people. Everyone lived and worked with the same level of salary, material wealth and social possibilities. However, in modern times it is essential for humans to possess the right of ownership. We are all humans, and as humans we dream, we aspire to new horizons, we tend to desire and achieve more than we have. Some people achieve their dreams – others do not. Right of ownership serves as a tool for those who achieve more in his life than other people. For example, a man has a hypothetical possibility to own a big business and so he makes all the efforts to achieve his dream. Another person, who does not have possibilities to possess and privatize business will not even try to realize his ideas. Material wealth is a representation of person’s attitude to life, achievements, self-expression. For these reasons right of ownership is one of the essential human rights.

The Least Important Human Rights

The right to Euthanasia

Word euthanasia, translated from Greece as a good death. We have a various different types of euthanasia. As example it can be active (introducing something tin order to cause death) to passive (withholding treatment and supportive remedy); voluntary (consent) to involuntary (consent from guardian), also physician assisted (here doctor prescribe the medicine drugs and patient or the third party decide the medication drugs in order to to cause death). The inquiry of the premature termination of life discusses a role of such practice in modern medical care. This discussion has co mplex and dynamic issues such as, ethical, legal, human rights, religious, health, spiritual, economic, cultural and social aspects in nowadays. The most convincing argument in favor of the doctor who has helped suicide or voluntary active euthanasia is the argument in favor of commission of suicide in the conditions of democracy. The fact that we have the right for euthanasia, doesn’t mean that always (morally) the right to execute this right. In this paper, if we classify this issue to less important right.

Political rights

Political rights are one the most effective rights in order to make society progress. It allows people to express their will, to notice any drawbacks of a political structure of the society and to correct them. From historical prospective such rights did have an effect only when big number of people were involved. But if we speak about individual’s rights, such political rights do not represent any value because they have certain meaning only in group or society in general. To be honest, members of our group do not enjoy political rights due to its ineffectiveness. We don’t go any meetings, protests or vote for any of politicians. For the reason of absence of factual necessity our group consider political rights as one of the least effective rights for an individual.

The right to propaganda of LGBT

LGBT is the community of the people with non-traditional orientation. LGBT abbreviation by itself stands for: Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders. Not every state supports the idea of propaganda of nontraditional sexual relationships and in some countries the support of the LGBT movement may be considered as unlawful for many reasons like for example children may be influenced by this movement because of their weak psychological protection. Our group thinks that the rights of the LGBT community are not violated because they have the same rights as other people, so we think that the right to propaganda of LGBT is insufficient.

The Gaming right

Gambling industry is always determined by the law named gaming which includes several sets of specific rules and regulations. Gaming low can be described as a collection of different spheres of law. Some laws such as criminal law, regulatory law, constitutional law, administrative law, company law, contract law, and in some jurisdictions, competition law are included in one main gaming law. In a broad sense, this law covers different types of laws. Gaming law also may be seen in the common law by its traits. As an example, gambling law requires some specific considerations, winning gains and chances that have to be considered by gaming lawyers in various operations related to gaming.

Generally, gaming industries are very gambling and addiction for people that why different kind of games such as casinos, racetracks, and lotteries are under the control and regulation of state and federal laws. This industry is a serious issue for some states which license this kind of activity. Therefore, some special commission are established for regulating and monitoring gaming industry by licensing entities involved in it. In addition, laws of states that allow operate casinos and other forms of gaming places, always put restricted zoning regulations in order to locate such establishments far from schools and residential areas.

Commonly, gamins law represents huge and diverse complex. Taking as an example US, gaming law is permanently being under the considerations of federal and state laws. In Canada, it also involves not only considerations of federal law but also provincial law in different legal disciplines.

The right to choose religion

Religion has played a reinforcing role in society throughout the history of mankind. Being practiced freely, religion establishes a moral scope for people to follow, which leads to tolerance of contradictory views and courtesy in civil society. Free expression of religion allows diverse religious organizations to exist within modern secular states, and can facilitate ideological conflicts by altering shifting (unstable) societies into models of harmonious coexistence. Freedom of religion is one of the basic personal freedoms, including the right to profess any religion, individually or jointly with others, to freely choose, possess and disseminate religious beliefs and act in accordance with them. It is recognized by the constitutions of even those countries where there is an institution of the state (official) religion.
