I think you're getting the wrong idea of what we mean be "equality"
User avatar #282 - stultum (11/11/2013) [-]
There is a difference between equality and being the same.

Everybody is different. I will sooner believe a doctor who tells me that I just have a bad cold, than a concerned friend who tells me I have lung cancer, because his father had lung cancer, and it started the same way.

There are other things my friend will be better at though. Being my friend, for one. He may know several languages, have a good sense of right and wrong, be able to see in the dark better than others, be a really good football player, or have a killer sense of humour.

And even if he isnt... He's still a human being, and is equally important as the aforementioned doctor. Which makes them equal.

As equals, they both have the right to live, to work to their live goals, and get help if they need it.

Equality is not giving everybody a fish, it's learning fishing those who don't know how to fish, and helping those who already know how to fish to put this skill to good use.

you do realize that everyone should be equal in the sense that everyone has the right to vote, if 2 people do the same job they deserve to have the same amount of pay and vacation days. NOT everyone should have the same amount of strength, dumb ass.

If race is a social construct, then why are there minorities?

if ketchup equals londonderry, then how come earthworms faked the moon landing?
User avatar #229 - riddlerenigma (11/11/2013) [-]
Yes. Because we all just love hearing people saying they are better than us.

For me too equality means being treated and treat people the same way no matter how different you or the others are.
I do my best to act that and the only exception is when I really like or love someone. It doesn't necessarly make me always happy but it is something I'm proud of and I wouldn't change it. I earn a lot thanks to it

"Equality" refers to legal rights, obligations and personal treatment. Nothing more.

But i get your point, people seems to have twisted or lost track of what "equality" means.

One of the reasons I think democracy is dumb.

Why makes humans so superior? Their intellect. Are we doing well currently? No(killing ourselfs at massive rates. And soon overpopulation will be a problem. Not to mention the world food problem.).
So what do we need? People capable of saving us. Which people? Intellectual people, as that is what makes us humans better thna other organisms on our planet.

We're different, some people should have more rights on some grounds and some on others. The whole equality thing is just plain stupid.
User avatar #22 to #21 - atomicman (11/10/2013) [-]
We aren't doing even remotely great. If you think we live in a golden age you're ignorant behond comprehension. You can't deny so many people are suffering every single second that goes by, we can't deny that overpopulation will soon claim the lives of thousands a week.

I think the world food problem and world energy problem *might* be solved in time. But the fact that overpopulation will become a problem, and that research generally goes way slower than it should be is not to be denied.

Clever people don't have to be better people(?). I've no clue how you came up with that.I just said you must let people do what they excel at, and clever people excel at organising things generally. Democracy allows 'huhuhuh he has a funny beard'-voters to vote aswell, which in my book is dumb.

Has it ever occurred to you that people fight and preach equality not because they want people to ignore physical traits, but instead make sure these traits does not make it so that some people are treated unfairly or unjust. equality is not about ignoring that someone is fat or fit, it's about making sure both the fat and fit get's the same opportunities regardless of their form.
