Synopsis Although the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was promulgated more than half a century ago by the United Nations, respect for human rights is not yet a reality on our planet. While some nations have incorporated into their legislation provisions that ensure the rights of their citizens, others disrespect even the most fundamental human right: the right to life. In this book the author addresses the issue in depth, discussing the new conflicts, the use of children as soldiers, terrorism and the infanticide practiced by Indians in Brazil. And after remembering that the world did not advance morally in the same proportion of technological progress, it says that only after really civilizing, cultivating the fraternal love preached by Jesus, and that the Earth had lived the full respect for the rights of man and peace so dreamed for all.
