Positionpaper 101214205023-phpapp02

  1. 1. Position Paper<br />Liberalism is the collection of ideologies committed to the principle of the dignity and freedom of the individual as the foundation of society and has respect for the sovereignty for the reasoning of the individuals. It emphasizes the individuals to be aware and protect their rights and freedoms and allows them to present their opinions if they feel they are being threatened. Liberalism allowed people to be able to influence and choose the leaders that represent them to ensure that what they believe is being expressed. The source presented to us is explaining that government leaders or individuals who have secured their liberty should guard their opposition and help them protect their freedom to avoid becoming a target of the enemy if things fall through. “What he does to others will be done to him” is a saying that helps us to understand the underlying theme of the quotation in the source. The source respects the dignity of every individual and recognizes and protects the rights and freedoms of the citizens. We should embrace the perspective reflected in the source and become aware of the point they are trying to portray. It can be a good lesson so we can prevent repeating events that have happened in history and can keep peace between people of different societies.<br />Some may argue that the government leaders are not respecting the charter of rights and freedoms that the individual is guaranteed. They complain that the government is supposed to protect us, the individuals, by protecting our rights and freedoms not by enforcing decisions that they believe will benefit or protect us from harm. The people who express this opinion or concern don’t understand that Liberal leaders of Democracy have found it necessary to limit people’s liberties in extreme situations such as war, times of crisis or country disaster. This has become a necessity for governments to do this because it allows the government to make decisions for the well being of all.<br />http://www.freedom4ever.net/freedom_rightfully.htm<br />http://www.hrea.org/index.php?doc_id=408<br />
