Do people have equal rights?
Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights says:
"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights."
(Source: Universal Declaration of Human Rights )
Unfortunately, the declaration does not guarantee that every person is born with equal rights, or that every person who does have equal rights will always have those rights.
Since the proclamation of the declaration in December, 1948, there have been innumerable egregious violations of its articles.
So, we can conclude that "equal rights for all" is an idea (like freedom), not a physical reality (like death). It has no existence beyond the boundaries of its creation, dissemination, interpretation, development, and implementation. Any credible effort to universally implement the idea would require a robust system of universal coercive enforcement.
