Human rights


The basis of how we define human rights

Qultura bases its definition of human rights in terms of hard realism and the fundamental truth that irrespective of aspects of culture, belief systems and ideology once a human being is born they are a part of everything else in existence. The universe is like a jigsaw puzzle. There are no spare pieces and everything fits together. Likewise every human being has their place within the human species and their part to play in the process of human evolution.

Human rights in the context of the universe

This means that from our perspective human rights are an aspect of reality and beyond all discussion and arguments. Very much in the same way as an apple grows out of a tree, and a tree grows out of the earth, and the earth is part of a planet which is part of a solar system, galaxy and universe itself, a human being grows out of other human beings. Everything in the universe is connected and interdependent on everything else.

Human rights and environmental issues

This means that there is a very clear and fundamental difference between human rights and social privilege, but this also means that environmental issues are very much human rights as well. Nobody can exist without having air to breathe, access to clean water, access to shelter, to food, to human contact and emotional involvement, and also access to culture. This means that the environment, the planet and your access to resources is very much a part of who you are as your hands, your face and your fingerprint. The only discussion when it comes to human rights is whether you personally choose to accept and embrace this reality or not.

Human rights and universal law

Therefore human rights are not a matter of legislation or being entitled to certain so-called rights which can be granted to you or taken away from you by an authority. Human rights are an ability to live in a manner which does not cause harm in any way to any other human being, living being or the environment. Within this human rights are the right to be able to live in a way where you are not harmed by others or face the threat of harm or deprivation of opportunity of access to any of the fundamental things you need for life. Human rights are based on universal law, and it is only the recognition of human rights which is based on human law or legislation.
