The 21st of March is Human rights day in South Africa. A day for individuals to reflect upon the role that they play in society towards building just and equitable communities that work for all.
All men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights of which they cannot deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.
“The right to private property (is) a logical extension of the right to liberty and self-ownership. If you are free, then you must own the fruit of your own labour as well as anything you buy with it. If someone takes that property without your consent, they subject you to slavery: being forced to work for the benefit of another without compensation,” said Mr. Tinashe Mpasiri, host of the morning show, the Continental Sunrise Breakfast Show on The 1873 FM radio www.the1873fm.com and an executive member of The 1873 Network www.the1873network.org.
Happy Human Rights Day.
