Human Dignity

1 Introduction

Catholic Social Teaching is developed of both Sacred Scripture and the Natural Rules custom. In the philosophical Natural Legislations, we've a vocabulary that will try to hold on reasons. To this the Natural regulation says and declares that HUMANS have all have a broad spectral range of right and incorrect. In fact, Thomas Aquinas reasons that "some goods are natural and visible to all or any".

This uniqueness of characteristics is the groundwork of the liberties and privileges of each human individual. Although some countries don't recognise these protection under the law or privileges, these privileges will be the dignity of a person from the moment of conception.

The dignity's aim, derives from the origin in God and Creator, which extends to the spirituality of the heart which can be an element key. Nobody can take away the spirituality of the spirit, and everyone should have admiration in others and in themselves. This spiritual element involves equal dignity and it lingers in each stage of in amount of the personal human life.

Natural dignity is accepted in the order, as like Vatican II reminds us: "Furthermore, while there are rightful differences between people, their equal dignity as folks demands that we shoot for fairer and more humain conditions"

Dignity is possessed by one who is a person or individuals, and therefore this is actually the distinction which pets or animals change from humans.

For this reason, what shall be kept of humans if dignity is taken away from them?

In his Summa Teologica that was up to 2, 000, 000 words and still unfinished during his death, Thomas Aquinas wrote:

"Is to be able perfect himself in his specific order, the individual must do good and prevent evil. The individual must also be concerned for the transmitting and preservation of life, refine and develop the richness of the materials world, cultivate communal life, seek real truth, practise well and contemplate beauty".

The natural law, is explained, in up to now, as natural right and for a human to attain common good, one will need to have full esteem for human being dignity. Within the International Declarations we find the safety of ever individuals being's dignity. It gives essence of the protection under the law of men and the confidence of equality.

2 What is Humanity?

Humanity is seen in many varieties, forms that are opposing and conflicting which are put forward by many people. Humanity is generally known as uncertainty and sorrow or distress and the Church shows it concern about these hitches, in simple fact the Chapel itself can propound a clarification by which the shape of mankind may be illustrated. The Church also talks about the vulnerability and difficulty of mankind in a way which the dignity and calling/vacation be professed in the divine, true light.

In the Sacred Scriptures we see it illustrates how men and women were created "in the image of God" "What are men and women that you are mindful of them, their sons and daughters that you look after them? You have made them little less than angels, and crown them with glory and honour. You could have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put everything under their foot" (Ps 8:5-8). 1

3 With the dignity of individuals person and law

The essential mother nature of the fundamental right of the individual person, and among them the principal right to life, seems to have always consisted of the fact they can be neither conceded nor derogated by any individuals power. It is because these rights have their base not in an act of individual will, but in the very nature and dignity of men.

The exact dignity of a individual person is frequentlu recognizable by the many human cultures that helped bring the light of the fundamental rights of the Common Declaration. Within the porous of the declaration on reads: "the acknowledgement of the non-public dignity and the similar and alienable protection under the law of all the associates of the individual family constitute the foundation of independence and peace on earth" and "All human beings are given birth to free and equal in dignity and rights"

The dignity of one is lay out in many situations. Some Christian Anthropologists explain what sort of person observed in the image of God, owns the dignity of an person and is usually to be respected and cured as a person from the very beginning of his conception till his fatality. For believers, an embryo has the dignity and the quality of a person, and it generally does not need to have achieved certain skills to own dignity. These concepts mentioned are principles believed of course, by beleivers who beleive in the Church and most of all in Christ. Just what exactly non-believers consider and think about individual dignity, is difficult to be elucidated.

Moral need also takes a major part in dignity as dignity is a unique excellence of prices. For example - animals are killed for specific reasons - to be consumed by humans, but if they are slaughtered or killed on order to take their fur for aesthetic purposes, then this will go against nature and the non-public dignity forbids any such acts.

The world has become a dangerous place. This is a fact. Human dignity gets into devote many circumstances. Each and every time we activate our tv sets or our radios, all we listen to are; terrorism which creates a vicious cycle of violence, abduction, war, poverty, situations of natural catastrophes and folks turning out without homes, racism and daily needs. Another problem of human dignity may also be the emancipation of the person by circumstances. For a guy to live in dignity, it is specifically necessary that population never again obtains as an abstraction in addition to the social specific.

Even acts of inhuman and degradation especially in under-developed countries not forgetting Sharia Laws and regulations in Iran, where women are placed in shame, murdered brutally or worse are tortured, leaving a person partly inoperative. It really is obvious that Individuals Dignity is not believed, thaught and exercised in every country, and for me, lot of work among says, needs to be finalised and put into effect, in order to stop these sorts of ridiculous atrocities.

Pope released these words on the 16th February, 2010, regarding individuals dignity, using these immemorable words:

"Bioethical questions often throw light on the dignity of the person, a fundamental principle which beliefs in Jesus Christ, has always defended, particularly when it is overlooked in dealings with simple and defenceless people". "Bioethics, like any other self-discipline, needs guidelines with the capacity of guaranteeing a coherent reading of the ethical questions which undoubtedly emerge when confronted with possible conflicts of interpretation. On this space lies the normative call to natural moral law".

"Recognising individual dignity as an inalienable right has its first basis in that rules - unwritten by the side of man but inscribed by God the Creator in man's heart and soul - which all juridical systems are called to recognise as inviolable, and all individuals to value and promote. Without the basic principle of real human dignity it might be difficult to acquire a wellspring for the rights of the individual, and impossible to reach moral judgements about those medical advances which have a direct impact on individuals life". 2

4 On Children and their learning

Education is an essential aspect of life. Education derives typically from school although the environment of home can take a major part of it. Children like every individual, are not the same; every child is exclusive and distinctive, therefore every child retains special attributes. During coaching in schools, there can be cases where in fact the teacher, instead of being patient with students and points out to him/her the particular learner is not understanding, the instructor mocks, criticizes etc. . the college student. And so the child concerned starting this accusations and shalmless situation, has been deprived of his dignity.

This is shameless as the concerned child/learner will feel ashamed, furious and shuts down his thinking because he may be blamed for being ignorant. If the kid is repetitively called ignorant or other names, he/she will expand up thinking with the perspective he/she is ignorant.

When parents try to "train" children by criticizing, lecturing, shaming, ridiculing, presenting orders, screaming, threatening and hitting, it shuts down their thinking so they can not learn what the adult designed to teach those to do or never to do; they can only just record what's being modelled. " 3

According to Kant: "Dignity is due to those who find themselves most importantly price, without equivalent permitted".

5 On Poverty

Quite interesting to note that about 34 million people in america, live below the poverty series, due to the fact USA is one of the richest countries on the globe. What goes incorrect the countries to generate a large ratio of poverty? Studies and statistics show that there are three elements that the market was sustained with, which are:

  • the enormous upsurge in consumer debt,
  • huge copy of resources in the form of interest obligations from debtor countries to American Banks,
  • and increase in armed service spending.

Unemployment is also a face to poverty, and which it also triggered by over human population. Poverty to a certain extent, takes away the individuals dignity as one does not have enough money to supply their children and themselves with food and the daily needs.

6 On Individuals Trafficking

In the truth of Real human Trafficking you have the Red Combination who will try to fight it. Human being trafficking victims the majority of the times do not consent or have no idea of what they'll be going through, subsequently falling into scam, force and violence. Initially they may be transported through land or sea means from all over the world, abducted or by means of deceit. It does not imply that humans are trafficked only for sexual exploitation as well as for removing organs also for forced labour. Quite simply: "slavery". Individual trafficking victims most of the times do not consent or are not aware of what they'll be going through. We also have modern slavery, where children work extended hours and are prisoners to their employers, who enjoy their independence.

Human trafficking takes away all human dignity in every sense and one feels so dirty that it is also an issue of suicide and depression.

7 On the administrative centre Punishment

In certain countries, like the U. S still apply the capital abuse. We humans combat much for our life and dignity, so I say who are these folks to get the power to guage between life or fatality? A punishment is definitely a punishment when it is fair but a capital punishment is it an authentic adequate punishment? The response as I see it is not any. And the reason is which i don't view it a measure to kill someone who has killed another person. This person who is likely to be executed will not have the time enough to think profoundly about his sin/s and might not exactly have the opportunity to change his lifestyle and perhaps live an improved life than before. Moreover God educated us humans to forgive. I am aware that their state cannot "forgive" but I must say i believe that their state shall retain in head every human's dignity and punish every person fairly.

Another reason I don't consent, is the for the fact that some humans that undertake a capital abuse turned out later, which needed also years, that they were innocent, let's take for example the execution of Carlos DeLuna which took place in Tx in 1989. New facts after DeLuna was executed showed profound doubt that he was innocent. And like DeLuna are many more others. It interesting to notice that the number of persons who were punished by the administrative centre death in 2007, were 53; the lowest volume of executions in ten years.

Jesus said: "Let anyone among you who is without sin, be the first to throw a stone at her. " As soon as again he bent down and had written on the floor. When they heard it, they gone away, one at a time, beginning with the elders; and Jesus was remaining alone with the woman position before him. Jesus straightened up and said to her, "Girl, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She said, "Nobody, sir. " And Jesus said, "Neither do you condemn you. Go your way, and to any extent further do not sin again. " (NRSV, John 8:7-11)

8 On Violence

Violence integrates and is associated numerous crimes and human being dignities. It could are based on terrorism, form human trafficking, and from a great many other aspects which is also needed for a individual to survive.

I think that Violence is one of the very most issues as an assault on Man Dignity. Violence is at different places. In a number of times it begins at home, and normally it takes types of mental and physical. It could be at work with institution, which can land in many common circumstances of bullying. An interesting simple truth is that violence is sometimes instigated by the advertising. To become more clear, a great deal of children face the internet and tv set and most of the days the motion pictures and documentaries which can be shown, contain in a way or another violence. Nowadays children no more play in the roadways and enjoy themselves with a tiny stuff nevertheless they are caught to gadgets. Funnily enough even a simple game of Playstation or a VIDEO GAME is packed with violence, and the more assault they contain, the more comfortable and enthusiastic children become. Assault is an enormous problem and the population, maybe without knowing, is instigating to bring along more assault and therefore less human being dignity.

The simple truth is that assault surrounds us in our everyday routine even in colleges where lately we have heard about violent children who assaulted their teachers and even their schoolmates, person who ripped open an eyes of another with a pencil.

And what can one say which is worse about the assault and hatred against the immigrants, and foreigners and folks with impairment. Racism is also a problem in which many people are affected because of violent problems.

Contrary to what I stated before that lots of violent functions are also derived from the mass media, the media in itself is a beneficiary source for showing violence across the world. By using press and their statement, you can make a viewers feel some sensationalism.

In the Booklet "Violence" by Wolfgang Huber, he acknowledges equivalent dignity for those human beings and so the admiration for elementary human protection under the law are inviolable ideas of coexistence. Huber goes on declaring that in the Religious custom and in the Jewish tradition, dignity of humans is taken really only by those who respect the God-given equality of human beings.

9 On Racism

"I have a aspiration that my four children will 1 day are in a nation where they'll not be judged by the color of their skin but by this content of their persona. "-Martin Luther Ruler.

Such sensitive words as spoken by Martin Luther King, from my aspect, he perfectly shows his anger, trend and at the same it symbolizes his heart breaking and love.

When Racism makes act, and people are being racist towards other folks, it demonstrates that same people aren't even in love with themselves. Describing mysel when I say: "that folks aren't even deeply in love with themselves", because to be able to start loving other folks which at the end are humans like each and every one of us, and show some concern about them, one must first learn to love themselves. It really is hideous and strange, to see around us, families who choose pets, and takes care of them, and then on the other palm, they can't even try to love nd help other humans!

Racism can be labelled as domination, tyrannical, intolerance, discrimination, unfairness, and assault killings against other individuals, or organizations. Racism are available in every country of the world, and it may start in institutions. Although we live in 2011 and we are supposed to are in a socialised world and even though our schools have developed and acheived better quality education, still the fight against Racism, appears to not have used progress. The planet is meant to be working to reach a well balance congruent and harmonious humanity.

The problem in Racism is huge, as many people do not only assess other humans on their apperance like pores and skin clour, but also from the particular country they are coming from regarding also different religions and approach to life.

It is quite interesting in the History of racism, as it originates from people that were sold as slaves. Thse slaves were called so and were sold because these were of black coloring. The time of 1619 till 1865, was a period when the Africana who lived in American were sold as slaves. They vere exposed to a whole lot of brutality and weren't considered as human beings, but as an object and were required to handle required labour. Every individual has the right to participate in the community and trying to look for the common good. 4

Racism troops hails from enough time of the Ku Klux Klan following the Civil War which was led by General Nathaniel Bedford Forrest. The aim of these organizations were to threaten and intimidate slaves. The Ku Klux Klan were also known and appreciated for the using of the crosses and their assault against the slaves. It is stated that today the people of the KKK are thousands and thousands.

Each and all of us, to be able to help beat racism, should speak and assimilate, in order to learn from someone who is suffering from racism.

10 On Employment

All HUMANS have the right to work! All humans who are used shall have a good income and are in addition of social benefits. We realize that Jesus spent all of his life working, which helps us understand that a person will be respected for who she actually is rather than for the task she provides out or the position she has.

At work places comes up a whole lot of problems which will go against individuals dignity like bullying. Bullying could lead to a serious and frightful situation and implications. This can lead to a great decrease in self-confidence. The dignities' target at the job is to ensure a working bond where everyone s treated with respect and dignity.

Another problem which occurs at work is the problem of migrants that are explicitly being abused by working very long hours and aren't paid enough like almost every other employee, because they are really immigrants and are of dark coloring. These folks and many other people in other countries have also lack of policies and insufficient legislation, and aside from racism, this is discrimination.

And I ask: "Do the regulators know about this major problem, and what exactly are they doing to be able o help improve the situation?"

11 So what is one able to do in order to help in attaining better conditions of individual dignity?

The cover of individual dignity is not a non figurative idea. The Red Mix movement can be an emergency response product that takes immediate and physical action, and engages in permanent initiatives to promote sustainable development. The individuals ability to prevent real human dignity is nowadays at risk and requires a lot of efforts.


Those who wish to reveal individuals dignity must start to search too exist jointly at the same tme and in the same. This can not only bring to the contract with the flexibility of every specific but that also really helps to unfold their independence. I humbly think that every human being has a dignity, and every human being should be respected and guarded, as Individual Dignity exactly means that every person deserves respect because every step of human being life is treasured and is worthy of having value and protection if one is taken from him the to life, the dignity automatically is taken away from him.
