Human rights/fear

By Cynthia

Within a system which denies the existence of
basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of
the day.

Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear
of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or
means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of
isolation, fear of failure.

A most insidious form of
fear is that which masquerades as common sense
or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless,
insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of
courage which help to preserve man's self-respect
and inherent human dignity.

It is not easy for a
people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of
the principle that might is right to free themselves
from the enervating miasma of fear.

 Yet even
under the most crushing state machinery courage
rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural
state of civilized man.” Aung San Suu Kyi
