On human rights, Part III

Okay, so we return to Human Rights Month with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, articles 3 and 4:
Article 3.

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 4.

No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

But what does this mean for me?

These are really short and pretty self-explanatory. Life. Liberty. Security of person. No slavery, no slave trade.

Just answer the question already.

It means that you're entitled to life, liberty, and security, and that you can't be forced into any form of slavery, dumbass.

Part I: The Preamble
Part II: Articles 1 and 2
