    Equality seems like a simple concept but it is actually complex.  Trying to make two different things equal is quite a task.  For instance, many people look at poor people and want them to have a better situation in life.  That's easy to understand when we view the poor as a group but the problem is that the so-called poor is group of individuals with wide-ranging disparities re the reasons they are poor.  It's not a situation where there is one answer for the entire group. 

    Another thought on the term equality is that too many toss it around as if they think life can be fair. It's not, it can't be, and it never will be. Working to make it so is futile activity. It is far better to respond to life in the parameters of the truth. Fairness is not possible, however, learning about ideas on initiative, preparation, self-respect, personal integrity, courage, creativity, high standards, following rules, and more are all really helpful.

    We should have equality under the law, where all adults are treated equally regardless of sex, gender, class. Per this view, the social justice narrative that women and ethnic minorities should have higher standing/weight than men and whites is immoral.
    If you want "everyone equal" in all regards, you get a dystopia like "Harrison Bergeron" by Phillip K Dick, where the smart and strong are handicapped and the beautiful masked so no one is better than anyone else. Or you have a society where everyone is cloned so no one is different, which is also a dystopia.

    We are always told that God loves us equally. Still, aspirants are very few. They serve God unconditionally as branches of His tree, always striving to elevate, to inspire; to re-awaken mankind. Naturally God gives them a little more Grace, not because He wants to, but purely because they are more receptive to His Light; more eager to share His burdens.

    Perhaps this is the greatest kind of equality; to utilise the few, for the good of the many. Much Love, Khawaja.

      Utilizing the few for the good of the many is not equality, though the welfare mindset of too many in today's society thinks so. In truth, good for the many is to elevate their thinking so that they are inspired to do what they should for themselves.

      We have both said the same thing. I'm happy with that.
