Individuals or an organisation are discriminating against you if they treat you differently from everyone else because of something about you that they don’t respect. Discrimination can be a horrible and hurtful experience and, in many instances, it’s against the law.
Racism also falls into the category of discrimination, so be sure to not mix either of them up.
The five most common cases of discrimination are retaliation discrimination, racial discrimination, gender discrimination, disability discrimination and age discrimination.
Human rights are basically the responsibilities and roles that every human being is entitled to, no matter our race, gender, ethnicity, language or colour.
The first and foremost Human Right was announced in September 1994: "We are all free and equal. We are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We should all be treated in the same way."
The Universal Declaration on Human Rights in 1948 has been repeated in numerous international human rights conventions, declarations, and resolutions. For example, an event called the 1993 Vienna World Conference on Human Rights noted that it is the duty of States to promote and protect all human rights and fundamental freedoms, regardless of their political, economic and cultural systems.
Law is a body of rules of conduct of binding legal force and effect, prescribed, recognized, and enforced by controlling authority.
There are two main sources of law in Australia, case law or common law, based on the decisions of judges in the superior courts, and legislation, the law made by Parliament.
Law is what keeps the inhabitants of a province safe from harm, they are there to protect you. For example, if a man was to kill another, he would earn a lifetime (or shorter) sentence to prevent him from hurting anyone else. In my view, no one should be convicted of anything without a proper court case and irrefutable evidence, which has recently happened to a lot of people.
Modern society is the current political, lifestyle, socialisation, artistic, educational, financial and health state. It is also stated as the lifestyle and events of most residents of a province, city, state or town.
Modern society is also viewed on the factors that have changed through long periods of time. For example, in Australia, lots of things have changed since the 1700s, when Captain James Cook 'founded' Australia.
Modern society is also based on how a group of people communicate and come to grips on real-life situations, such as how we deal with civil unrest, the corruption of young minds, riots, political debates, religious extremism, etc.
