1. Reflecting on the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights (pages 392-394), what rights do you think you have and what rights do you think you lack? Support your answer. (Question 2 on page 432) I think that I have the rights in articles 1, 3, 4, 5, 17, 18, 19, 23, 25, & 26 – pretty much all of them. I feel like I have freedom, education, my health, food, equal pay, all with out discrimination. The only rights that I haven’t experienced would be articles 11 and 13 – but that is because I have never been to court where I would need to be innocent until proven guilty, but if I had to go, I think that I would have that right and article 13 says everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state. I have lived in WI my whole life, so I’m not sure on that one. 2. If you were in Rawls’ original position behind the veil of ignorance, would you agree to tax income for social programs such as homeless shelters, childcare, and medical care? Why or why not? (Question 9 on page 434).
