The basis of social security lies in esteeming life. Because, in an environment in which human beings are not appreciated enough, the extent of securing them is disputable. It can be compared with an example of meaninglessness, like the situation of a convict under capital punishment, who was executed after being treated and cured. Another one: first, treated and cured; and if s/he dies, people that s/he is obliged to take care of are paid indemnity…
Life-esteem should be appraised in a systematic way, rather than in a personalised manner and ?momentarily?. It is because of this reason one should question life and determine on the basic needs of the individuals. Maslow describes them as the basic physical needs. Food and drinking, shelter and health, and etc. are the indispensable needs, and they should be met urgently. The following step, on the other hand, is guaranteeing these indispensable needs.
In regard to these two basic needs, we can propose a compound chart of life-esteem: SOCIAL ASSURANCE
|RIGHTS OF INSISTING ON ONE’S RIGHTS & RIGHTS TO ORGANISE||DEMOCRACY||LABOUR RIGHTS & PREVENTION OF UNEMPLOYMENT|
|RIGHTS OF KNOWING (EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS)||LEVEL OF INCOME|
Activities regarding combat against poverty are vital issues that can not be left to the initiative of any political group, or to 39 government members. For this reason, each and every individual should be involved in the activities protecting or rescuing his/her self from poverty. The most definite and direct way for achieving this is being involved in the non-governmental organisations.
On the basis of this hexagonal presentation, there lies democracy. It is because of the reason that the other six could only be improved by means of democratic improvements. Therefore, the most indispensable indicator of this chart is democracy, and then the others. All the other sub-indicators are related to one another, and they nourish each other.
These sub-indicators by which life-esteem is sustained constitute the fundamental human rights. Thus, we should take into consideration that life-esteem is highly connected to the fundamental human rights.
