The commentary supports the article “Not Above the Law: A Legal and Ethical Analysis of Short-Term Experiences in Global Health” by Rowthorn et al. Gostin supports the document`s assertion that anyone involved in health activities in any environment (domestic and foreign) must comply with applicable laws and regulations. Engaging in such work without doing so reflects an outdated – and destructive – aid model that presupposes and imposes an inherently unequal relationship that frustrates the goals and values of global health. It concludes that there can be no double standards and no ethical or legal value that apply in rich countries, but not in countries that accept health volunteers. If we are to gain respect, we must replace this concept of CULTURAL RESPECT with the concept of MUTUAL RESPECT, where the elder is respected as much as the youngest, and this respect is earned on the basis of superior thought, wisdom, discipline and character that has stood the test of time. In this way, the pressure is no longer on the younger ones to offer respect where it is not deserved, but on the older ones to reach a higher level to gain the desired respect, and when it is obvious that the younger one is better informed and better prepared than the elder, the older ones should not submit to the younger age. but on the knowledge and higher education possessed by the youngest. This is how we build a culture of excellence. This brings us to terminology that is merely a flow of this philosophical bias; MUTUAL RESPECT. Mutual respect is simply the recognition of all human beings created in the image and likeness of God, who deserve respect, to the extent that they have control over their ability to determine their expression of this divine identity. It means saying to the person next door, “I respect you because I know that you are created in the image and likeness of God, and to the extent that you live daily and refute this identity, I will give you the respect that this identity deserves.” It is not necessarily waiting to be respected by the other party before showing respect, it is paying homage because it is due to our common divine identity. Therefore, respect for others is actually a form of self-respect. To recognize someone else`s humanity enough to give them the respect they deserve means to recognize your own humanity enough to declare by your actions that you deserve such respect.
This kind of imbalance and preconceived expectations has led to a problem of genuine lack of honor in many African societies. Honor is first given to oneself as a duty before being bestowed by others. Honor should be given to the honorable. However, what we see in much of African culture is that people who do not have honor per se expect to receive honor solely because of their age, title, or status. That is why we have so many dishonorable people called “honorable.” People often look for status symbols as people of true honor, because that`s what the society in which they operate celebrates and respects. We express our shock when these people act dishonorably without first seeing the connection between our cultural expressions and these results. But where there is a deviation from the expressions of this divine identity, respectability is lost and respect also disappears through the window. Courtesy means mutual respect or courtesy.
When two people or two groups show compassion, they behave with respect, politeness and politeness towards each other. Due to a mistaken definition of respect, African leaders, whether at home, in the village square, in the market or in the palace, do not see the strong need to be accountable to those who lead them. To be respectable is therefore to be dignified or respectful. Have a reasonably good social status. Have a good reputation or character, especially in terms of morality. The concept of respect, as defined by many African cultures, is imperfect. We will briefly examine some of them in this work. Fourth, in most African cultures, HONOR, BOTH AS A GIFT AND AS A REWARD, IS MOSTLY RESERVED FOR THE ELDERLY: IT ONLY FLOWS UPWARDS AND NEVER REALLY DOWNWARDS. Most of the time, when a younger person is honored, it is because of the presence of something outside that establishes some sort of status such as money, fame, or power. For example, if an older person makes a promise to a younger person and it breaks, we assume that there must be something more important to consider. But if the younger one did the same to the eldest, we consider the younger one disrespectful and dishonorable. Comity refers to courts in one state or jurisdiction that respect the laws and judicial decisions of other jurisdictions — whether state, federal, or international — not out of obligation, but out of consideration and mutual respect.
Not to mention the consequence of the hypocrisy that comes with forcing a person to show respect without really feeling it. Even God does not accept this kind of reverence from people. This chapter attempts to address the question of how a conscientious citizen should relate to the laws of a society whose legal system is, on the whole, good and just. It examines the implications and presuppositions of different moral attitudes towards the law. It is often argued that there is an attitude towards the law commonly referred to as respect for the law. Those who abide by the law have general reasons for following it; Their reason is their attitude and it is morally permissible to respect the law in this way. The chapter also deals with the paradoxical law-abiding claim, which suggests that those who abide by the law are subject to an obligation from which others are exempt. It also contains analogies to allow for a better understanding of the concept of the need to respect the rule of law. The chapter concludes with a summary of the conclusions on the correct attitude towards the law. Comity is most often used in political or legal contexts to describe the practice of recognizing the rules or laws of another party. It is also used more generally to describe a state of mutual respect between the parties.
A. Courtesy B. Courtesy C. Disrespect D. While it is true that power inspires respect, respect for the powerful remains in people`s hearts only for the desire for power for the main reason that they could attain a level of respect that is unknown to them. It has become so chronic that it has even been considered normal by parents for younger students to suffer injustice from their older peers. Some have even spoken so proudly about it to learn respect. Some parents even boasted about sending their children to residential schools was the reason; Forget that the oppressed will eventually seek a channel of distraction for this whole experience of oppression. The oppressed eventually become oppressors and the vicious circle continues.
The term courtesy can refer to a sense of courtesy between two people or groups in any context. But it is mostly used in the context of international law and economics. In the legal sense, international comity is the principle of respect for the laws of another entity. The term “judicial comity” refers to a court that respects the decisions of another jurisdiction. When used in the expression of the courtesy of nations, courtesy refers to an interaction between countries where each follows the laws of the other.
