Read the passage given below and answer the questions based on it ranging from 96 to 100.

At the national level, democracy means open markets and political party pluralism. At the individual level, democracy is defined as and usually limited to the right to vote. The definition of human rights has been similarly narrowed. Human rights concerns in the North are most often limited to the civil right to protest or organise against the government. The economic and social rights of human beings to eat, to educate their children, to earn a living wage, are ignored or marginalised in the human rights discourse, or their violations accepted as the unfortunate but acceptable consequence of the larger good of market democracy. In this context one might speak of the denial of the human right to democracy – but it would most likely refer only to the denial of the right to vote.

The democratic right to live in an independent country remains absent from today’s democracy or human rights debates. While one may hear of ‘human rights violations’ by the occupying forces in Palestine, or East Timor, or South Lebanon, those violations will be specific instances involving military attacks, suppression of a protest march, and so on. Rarely, if

ever, will the occupation itself be described as a violation of human rights or democratic rights. What is called for is less a new definition of democracy or democratic rights, than a return to the once-richer and more complex understandings of what democracy or democratic rights mean. The problem is that the rapid collapse of the socialist bloc at the end of the 1980s, and the unchallenged victory of US-dominated global capitalism, allowed a new set of definitions of, and the imposition of new limitations on, political concepts. ‘Imperialism’ disappeared, replaced by the benign-sounding ‘globalisation’. ‘Capitalism’ disappeared, as ‘market economy’ became the policy watchword. ‘Internationalism’ disappeared altogether, replaced by nothing since economic globalisation was understood, albeit quietly, to refer only to the movement of capital and production and goods between countries not to cross-border ties between people.

Answer: (2)

98. How are economic and social rights are marginalised in larger debate of democracy:

(1) Market democracy cares about the larger good of the society.

(2) It ignores nitty-gritty of daily life.

(3) Rights to eat, educate children and earn wages for a living are accepted as unfortunate and acceptable violations.

(4) There is a distinct difference between denial and violation of human rights.

Answer: (3)

99. How do human rights violations deprive democratic values:

(1) By ignoring democratic rights from the overall human rights debate.
