Human Rights and the Human Quest
By: Thomas K. Johnson
We cannot avoid the big questions: Who are we? What gives human life value? What is this world? Where did it come from? What is wrong with the world? What is wrong with us? Why do we have a sense of moral obligation? Why can we not avoid crying out for justice? Why can we not avoid crying out for mercy? So, I have to ask, what does the existence of the human rights movement tell us about the nature of the universe and ultimate Truth?
