the 11th International Conference on Human Rights
June 3-4, 2011
Place: Olsztyn, Poland
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act in the spirit of brotherhood towards one another (Article 1 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights). Dynamic economic development in the twentieth and the twenty-first century forces us to look for newer and newer areas of exploitation. Production of basic products that are needed for the survival of the humanity is a history now. New technologies constantly heap on mankind with new inventions. Technological innovations are produced so quickly and on such a high scale, that man is not able to enjoy them anymore. Services sector is a new area of economic expansion what is confirmed by development of different forms of tourism, including even space trips.
Finally, the man himself has become the subject of economic exploitation. It has been relatively easily accepted, that in Asian countries, clothes for Europeans are very often made by children. Only few organizations discuss that problem. In many parts of the world, children are used for military purposes, abandoned on the streets. In Europe there are many hidden forms of slavery labor and work without social security. Development of economy is not always consistent with the quoted principle of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or the love for neighbor and is reflected in the legal system. In many countries, prostitution, drug trade, euthanasia and abortion have been legalized. Trafficking in people and human organs prospers. Slogans of freedom, equality, liberation are only a justification for such actions and the economic concept of profit at any cost is hidden behind them.
It is worth considering the real intentions of many today's economic activities, especially in the view of cultural collision. Globalization of the world leads inevitably to confrontation between Christian, Islamic, Jewish, secular and other systems of values. However, the most important in all of that is the man.
