I believe in equal opportunity.

Everybody should have the same chances to succeed but the people who actually do succeed will be the ones with the talent and drive to work hard.

Well it makes sense, doesn't it? You earn what you have and are limited by your own drive and nature, be it physical, emotional or mental.

No I agree with it entirely. You should be recognized by skill not who you know or don't know.

Equability and union come from difference, that's the paradox.

If you had a puzzle and all pieces where the same, you couldn't create anything.

If you feel that everyone must be the same then people lash at each other because of their differences. When you come from a place that knows every piece as different from the other, then you have acceptance for all the different pieces and you don't judge (compare).

"Equality" isn't about being the ******* same kind of people, it's about having the same opportunities in life...

The point of equality is that we acknowledge that people are not equal but articulate that we should none the less treat everyone equally. Men are physically stronger than women on broad average, but that doesn't mean men are the master sex destined to rule all. Certain racial and social demographics score higher and perform better in academia, but that doesn't mean we should start drawing lines and cutting college scholarships based on those lines, because that would be unfair.

Whoever made this, and everyone that is agreeing with it, is rather missing the point of the actual idea of equality. We say that everyone is equal in standing because of the principle of universal fairness, and the idea that we do not know enough to be fit to judge. To claim otherwise is to begin walking a path that can only lead to discrimination of one sort or another, be it against race, sex, genetics, or other innate characteristics like personality.

I don't think we can ever have true gender equality unless we get rid of all separation. Like with racial segregation, separate is inherently unequal. I don't think we could handle unisex everything though.

Affirmative action is racist.
Nobody should be given any extra help or leg ups because of their race.
Everyone should be left to succeed or fail based on personal merit alone.

to Americans equality is supposed to mean that everyone has the same rights. Unfortunately you are correct now days it is all ********. (he has something I don't, why don't I have it am I not equal?) what they don't say is that the other guy worked his ass off for it or made smart investments, and that the speaker has the exact same right to work his own ass off or or make smart investments in order to get what he wants.

There are two different things that they teach kids these days in public schools.
1. Support and respect the fact that people are diverse and have different qualities/beliefs/sexual orientation/race etc.
2. Treat others equally AS IN treat those with different qualities/beliefs/sexual orientation/race etc. with just as much respect and to give them the same rights as you would yourself or any other person you respected.
The point of "equality" is not to denigrate the fact that others are different than you. It's to accept those people for their differences.

It doesn't, and since the subject is opposing equality that means if you have the ability to do so, you can and maybe should. Because **** morality, it's been rejected from this scenario.

That's modern equality.

The struggle for equality of old was for equal rights and opportunity, not petty difference. We live in a day of the outcomes of that struggle: women have mostly equal rights, blacks are encroaching on the dawn of equal opportunity, and immigrants have garnered much more respect than before.

When you think of equality, you shouldn't think of the modern brand of "equality" that argues every difference. Rather, think of equal freedom. The freedom the country was founded on. An accurate representation of inequality would the refusal of gays to marry or adopt.

I think it's not completely that the definition of equality has changed that much, I think it's that we search for equality these days instead of fairness. Equality is everyone gets the same thing. Fair is everyone gets what they need/deserve. Pick related (left is equality, right is fairness)

The definition may not have changed much, but I think people's perception of the word has.

In all the past great struggles, people sought equality because they were denied freedom as humans. All those past great struggles had a common theme: this social group doesn't deserve the same freedom that that social group. In the modern society, most people have that freedom so they don't understand exactly what it is to be inequal.

But I see you point with fairness; a measure of equality would come with absolute fairness. But the issue becomes how do you accurately ascertain who deserves more and who doesn't? It becomes much more difficult to apply that to everyone, when equality is more simple to implement.

Every man being created is equal is derived from John Locke's Law of Nature and how it applies to everyone, not that you and I are the exact same. Maybe before you criticize what the media makes you believe, you should do you own research to what it actually 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.

Intellectual people are by no means good people. Also, we're doing ******* great at the moment. Deaths from war are literally the lowest they have ever been, disease is at an all time low and we don't torture each other every five minutes. The progress we made in 200 years is unprecedented. We live in the golden age, son, and a large part of that is equality of opportunity. Nobody is saying the 2342 stone whale is as fast as Usain Bolt. We're saying if the whale wants to work hard and train then they can by all means try and be that fast.

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.
