For everyone to have the opportunity to pursue higher needs, people’s individual freedoms must be respected, so that everyone can express themselves and participate in social, political and economic life without fear of discrimination.
This means that as a society we must continuously strive to ensure:
- Freedom of thought, conscience and religion;
- Freedom of opinion and expression;
- Freedom from discrimination;
- Freedom of assembly; and
- The right to privacy.
This Positive Pursuit encompasses any action which achieves such an outcome.
