- Political expression — Freedom of thought, conscience, and religion — Right to non-discrimination — Persecution
This chapter focuses on claims for freedom from discrimination because of nonconforming political belief. It starts with a factual background on deprivations imposed upon individuals owing to their political or other opinions. In particular, it considers political deprivations in relation to enlightenment, power, well-being, wealth, skill, affection, respect, and rectitude. It then examines basic community policies regarding the differential treatment of individual human beings entirely on the basis of political and other opinions, a practice that is clearly incompatible with the values of human dignity. It also discusses a range of prescriptions against discrimination on the basis of political or other opinions before concluding with an overview of future developments on freedom from political discrimination and persecution.
