Powers, Rights, and Freedoms
The rights, freedoms, and powers of people change over time due to the variations of rulers and opinions. In a video from class, it showed a timeline of how rights were first started, and what had to happen to get them to where they are now. Cyrus the Great is the man that decided to create the Human Rights. He said that all slaves were free, and that people were allowed to make their own decisions. All of this was recorded on a clay tablet called the Cyrus Cylinder. Through the years the rights have changed, and people have gained and lost power. We've had many class discussions on Human Rights; school dress codes being one of them. From a students point of view, school dress codes aren't fair, and against their rights. They think that it isn't fair that they cant completely express themselves because of the rules. But from a teachers point of view, school dress codes are fair and do not provoke anyone's freedom. The freedom, rights, and powers that people have varies on the groups that they are apart of.
