We need an actual definition of what 'security of person' means in terms of the UDHR. Life and Liberty are pretty self explanatory, but what does this security entail? Is it like the 'pursuit of happiness'? or perhaps a bit more complex? or different altogether? Perditor 21:15, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

The UDHR doesn't really define it. However, I have added a general definition of the term to the intro, from a book with a non-Canadian perspective. CanadianCaesar Et tu, Brute? 17:19, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Security in this sense actually refers to a physical financial document, representing the share in the value of the country owned by the person. This is why most countries have in their bill of rights a seperate clause about the right to physical integrity and security of their body, or words to that effect, because the two concepts represent different things. Security of person is the right to hold the share or stock value of their 'security', in a financial sense. Understandably, the government does not want you to know this. Good luck demanding to hold your own security! 21stcenturypolitix 18:09, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

That makes sense, more than the last paragraph of the article does. I think that perhaps the last paragraph needs to be rewritten and headed as a secondary meaning of the word. Maybe it's own page. If it was written with proper references. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:55, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
