All people in Great Britain and indeed in the world ought to be guaranteed their universal and inalienable human rights. No group should receive more privilege over another. Minority groups should not be given more rights over the majority and vice versa. I don’t want this title to mislead. It must be noted that when oppression does occur in certain regimes around the world that it is usually minority groups that face the worst of that oppression. So I argue that as a value, our...

Bio An 18 year old student currently studying Politics and International Relations at Loughborough University. I strongly believe in the application of reason, positivism, empiricism and in general, the scientific method to the political arena. Whilst I have views I find hard to justify scientifically (due to my own ignorance), I am studying so that I can reach this stage and is for my value of science that my views have changed quiet drastically in my teenage years. I look for 'ideal' values and situations, but want to avoid the utopianism often associated with idealists. I'd much rather label myself ambitious in my ideological thought.
