    Are there people who you feel are superior to you?   Do you feel you have more rights then any other people?

    Everyone is equal in my opinion absolutely. If you were to strip every individual status in society of financial status then the society we know and understand would drastically change.
    Life experiences mould who we allow ourselves to become, it's not the sum of us, it's a side affect of individual life experience.
    There are no people that I feel are superior to me. Nor people that I feel that I'm superior to.
    If you strip status and personal life experiences from people you are left with who they really are. So to me everyone is equal.

    Everyone is equal, because I am smart in some things that other people are not, and there are people who are smart in other things that I am not. so, are are the equal.

    All people are equal, no matter what, under United States law.

    The quote is, 'all people are equal, but some are more equal than others.'  If my memory serves me well, it comes from Animal Farm.  Orwell. 1948. and was said by Napoleon the pig and was probably 'all animals...'
    It's been said many times
    That you're better than no one
    And no one is better than you
    If you really believe that
    You have nothing to win
    And nothing to lose
    Bob Dylan. To Ramona. c1964
    I don't think that anyone else is superior to me, or you, or uncle Tom Cobbley, I know that I'm good at some things but not others, and that applies to everyone.

    Some people think that they are better than others or there would not have to be a law that says we are equal.

    It all depends on who you ask.  For example, we have a bunch of elected officials in Washington DC who profess to support the Constitution and the equality espoused there.  That is how they talk but then look at how these ducks walk,  Congress tends to exempt its members from legislation passed on a regular basis.  The healthcare bill is "good enough" for the average American but "not good enough" for a Congressman.  Now, you will them defend their actions on the basis of not wanting to tip the scales on the bill with individual and personal bias....basic double speaking gobbly-goo.  Thus, right here in America,  home of the brave, land of the free, the minion of equality in the world, we live with it every day.  And....we do little about it most of the time.  WB

    To be different in not to be equal, but we should all have equal rights and equal access to the resources provided by nature. In a true democracy under the law, we should also have equal say in freedom of speech, thought and assembly, which all to often is not the case.

    Each and every one of us uses our intellect and knowledge in many various ways, some people are of a less or higher IQ, (thats just a gene pool thing,) some are quick to learn, and again there are others  who either do not want to learn, or resist change and new technology almost as a norm.
    Whatever the rights and wrongs of it, we are all at some stage either, - overawed by someone with say - higher qualifications or an exotic sounding or very technical profession, and mayhap a refined voice.
    Or we look down on the "thickos", and we all know they are out there,( just nod, you know you have!)  or else we feel somehow superior to someone with a more mundane job, its a normal human condition fortunately or otherwise.
    There must be times when you look around at - (eg) work mates, neighbours, even friends, and wonder how many of them would survive in the event of a natural disaster, or serious break down in civilisation.
    This is because it is human nature to compare, we do it automatically every single day of our lives, sometimes you feel your top dog, other times you wonder if there is an invisible sign over your head saying "treat me like dirt".
    No I am afraid as much as you may wish to legislate, not all people are equal, each and every one of us is an individual, and that will shine through.
    Take the race , creed and gender issues out of the equation, put in the laws that protect individual rights, and there will still be those who regularly excell and those who regularly just get along or consistently  fail at whatever they do.
    The human brain is a very complex device, and each is unique to the individual, and legislation may cause people to give lip service to equallity, but in behind the closed doors and curtains of the brain, there will always be that comparison going on, even subconsciously.
    How many times have we as people met someone for the first time, and either took to them straight of, or immediately set up barriers of dislike, or worse still, just wrote them off as being of no consequence, we just compared automatically.
    Natural selection and survival of the fittest and most able, is a deeply entrenched primal motivator, stronger in some than others, and with that in mind (no pun intended) no not all people are equal.

    All people are equal in the eyes of God.  All people are created equal according to the Bill of Rights or Constitution...I think it' s the Bill of Rights.

    However, all people are not created equal.  Basketball players have an advantage because of height.  Christina Aguilera has an advantage over me because she has an amazing voice and I'm tone deaf to my own singing. 

    The whole freaking thing seems obvious to anyone who thinks about it.
