Resumen

Los derechos humanos que están consagrados en la mayoría de las democracias occidentales se basan en los ideales ilustrados de libertad, igualdad y justicia. Aunque estos principios básicos son inspiradores, su aplicación no ha sido necesariamente equitativa o completa para proporcionar estabilidad, seguridad y salud a todos los ciudadanos. Una interpretación más moderna de los derechos humanos abarca lo que se necesita para establecer el florecimiento humano, incluido el acceso garantizado al agua, en particular el agua limpia que proporciona un saneamiento adecuado. Sin confianza en la seguridad y la salud en general, y las normas establecidas para las protecciones individuales, es difícil que una sociedad sea estable y florezca. Aunque este argumento comienza con la filosofía política, termina con un estudio de caso en Alabama, uno de los estados más pobres de los Estados Unidos. Este estudio evalúa la disfunción causada a las comunidades locales y a la sociedad en general cuando las organizaciones gubernamentales no brindan saneamiento ni garantizan la salud pública de sus comunidades.
