Abstract

Human rights and national rights are great values of humanity. Human rights are apparent, not an allowance or blessed upon by a higher power. These are noble values, deeply perceived by humanity as a universal value. Protecting and applying human rights is always a concern of mankind. The developmental theory about them is strongly linked to class struggle and social revolutions. The evolving process of mankind has indicated an great desire for human rights and freedom. Human rights contain a wealth of content and complexity when combined with different political regimes, so there are often different views about human rights due to different approaches. In Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh mentioned human rights very early and made many contributions to human rights’ theory. Inheriting and developing of human rights values from the doctrines and cultures of humanity, Ho Chi Minh has addressed his opinion on human rights: human rights attached to the spiritual rights of the whole nation. The author analyzes the uniquenesses of Ho Chi Minh's thought on human rights, thereby explains the historical values and times significance of Ho Chi Minh’s thought.
