For the the first time in human history, the peoples of the world came together and affirmed their belief in the nature of human nature:
We are all members of a human family
We are equal in dignity and rights.
We are endowed with reason and conscience.
2. Potential and Worth
This is implied by:
- Birthright into human family
- Our inherent dignity
- Our inherent equality
- Our inherited rational status (we are endowed with reason)
- Our inherited moral status (we are endowed with conscience)
3. Shared Responsibility
- To relate to each other in a spirit of kinship
This is the shared and fundamental nature of all people everywhere.
