    Do you think some people are born better than other people?

    Everyone knows of people who always get that great job, that get pulled over for speeding and never ticketed, that seem always to be in the "cool crowd" no matter how many times he or she moves.  The ones who always get the break.  Are these people just lucky or blessed, or just born that way?

    The belief according to Hinduism is that these are "the fringe benefits" enjoyed in this birth on account of doing good deeds in the previous births. Yes. Some people come to earth endowed with better privileges, skills, lucks, blessings etc. Some are not. It's all due to your acts of good and bad in your previous births.

    Again what is going smooth (e.g. speeding and never ticketed) today may run to rough weather tomorrow, once they exhaust the fruits of their past good deeds. Likewise, once some of the evil effects of past births are exhausted, tide may change for good for some people.

    It's all by karma!

    I believe all are born equal. That being said, some are born luckier than others.  Imagine your life if you had been born impoverished in a third world country.  My family and friends have adopted children from China, Russia and South America and, with the benefit of an American upbringing in loving homes, they are awesome.  I believe all humans possess an innate sense of right and wrong along with the same emotions and sense of self.  Environment, especially childhood environment, plays an important part in the evolution of a person's character.  Money & popularity are fringe benefits but do not IMHO define the quality of a person.  All are equal from the homeless bag lady to the Wall St. mogul and ALL pay the price of hardship and heartache on the road of life.

      If some are born luckier, then how are all born equal?!

    luck, all depends on luck. SOme people are born in wealthy family, some are born in poverty but managed to pull into a rich life later

    Each of us have different attributes, gifts, & characteristics. Many of these are natural while other attributes, gifts & characteristics have been deemed better by a particular culture & society.  It is not that people are born better; it is what a society deem to be positive or negative depending upon what the societal construct consider to be acceptable & proper.  Such societal parameters & paradigms could include looks, money, talent, & education.  Some societies see socioeconomic wealth as better while other societies view a sense of community as better than socioeconomic acquisition.   It all depends upon what each society & culture value as important. 

    Then of course there is a societal pecking order which proclaims what is important within & according to a particular group as far as morality, trends, economics, & politics go.  Within this pecking order, there is a top group, a in-between group, & the bottom group.  It is usually the top group that determines how the other groups live for the most part.  The top group makes the rules while the middle group has some leeway as to how to live their lives but follow the rules set by the top group; the bottom group is usually at the mercy at the top & middle group.
