Default Who's right?

It has long been known to me, that this world, or at least the western world, spends too much time teaching our children about 'Their rights'.

I would like to think, that if the emphasis was taken off 'rights', and pointed more toward 'responsibilities', the world could do nothing else, but, become a far better place.

ie, I may not have the right to spank my child nowdays, but I still have the responsibility. (Just so they don't end up like YOU).

Now don't get me wrong here, it's not the child's fault, the world has come to this, just an example. Lawyers teach their clients that they are the victim too much.............. I even have friends that play the victim of their own lives! (Makes it easier for me to succeed, without them attacking life, the way it is supposed to be done).

Who would dare dissagree?

Mick.

Curious, coming from an Australian, where we have few true rights anyway.

Don't get me wrong, responsibilities are equally important, but here in Australia we could stand to have more people stand up for some rights.

The right to freedom of speech and expression, for instance, could use some help here...mercifully, it's looking increasingly likely that the mandatory internet filter plans will fall through.

And with that, I'll leave the topic alone, before I cross the line into politics....

Curious
I was reading a magazine where these worlds are used:Responsibility and Rights . The writer says that there's one thing that has to be given to children : the sense of responsibility and the sense of playing, and they go together ,hand in hand. Not giving the sense of responsibility (ability to respond?) and they'll grow without character ,not aiming to do great things. And without a smiley attitude they'll become disfunctional ,probably unhappy. Where big values and playfulness meet , a birth of a non sacrificial responsibility and a non superficial game happens .(sorry for my traslation..)
A responsibility that is more than a staid duty , more than a rock ,and a game that is a lot more than amusement ,more than a feather.
Let's grow them like this and we'll have children that will do seriously any game ,and will play with the great responsibilities .-With this combination ,Stay hungry,stay foolish,Steve jobs had built the Apple empire and
bla bla bla.

Actually, I'm looking at a far bigger picture, if everyone exercised responsibilitiy on the internet in the first place, it wouldn't be an issue.

So you see, responsibility first, rights, should then become a distant last.(naturally).

As an Australian, you have more rights than plenty, but that could all change, if the law makers have their way. Also as an Australian, you have big responsibilities, look after that side of it, and your remaining rights, will last a little longer.

It is becoming the 'Australian way', that, if there is no law in place, it can't be wrong.
If I could bring myself to think like that, we may all be in danger, I shall execise responsibility here, and save us all the hassle, Just because, that is what 'I' believe, to be right.........and it's my right.

Picowallspeaker,

Thats the right way I feel. Rights are nothing without responsibility, for a start.

Without responsibility, rights cannot possibly exist, but, responsibility can exist forever without rights. No brainer really, no politics here, just uncommon sense!

Most people just want to be able to do whatever they feel like doing with no care for the consequences. Anything that curbs their disregard for social correctness, morals and legal issues they claim is an infringement of their rights. I say "Hurrah!" for opression. "Hurrah!" for Imperial Yoke.

On the other hand ... I was reading yesterday about different attitudes between England and Italy,of the opportunity to get rid of the sons as soon as possible (E) and to let them stay home the more as possible (I).If the first ones are going to face life stiff upper lips,the latter are becoming big babies. I'm among them !!!

Clearly not a problem suffered by all countries. Some people, have as much right to food, as that sparrow you hit this morning in your car on the way to wall street. Then you complain? Strange.
