I don't know what you people's problem is with op, I agree with him.

Why would I ever want to be considered equal to this?

Should we be DIFFERENT from one another or UNEQUAL?

This is some pretty dumb **** . :l

OP has the right idea. Delighting in each other's differences, rather than trying to hide them by claiming we are all equal or hating each other for them, is the only move that can be of lasting benefit.

People should be equal regardless of identity such as race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion and gender (though there are a few biological differences but still shouldn't be restricted from certain rights and opportunities). But equality obviously breaks down when you're taking non-inheritable traits such as intellect of physical fitness into account.

In my primary School, i got a very bad education because 70% of the focus was on helping those With Extremely bad grades. Most of the time the Teachers just repeated what we had learned in the previous year so it would help those struggling to Catch up.

The result of this was slightly raising the minoroty of bad grades, and lowering the progress of students With a potential to learn more.

Sometimes giving more Resources to those With bigger needs can backfire

"All men…are NOT created equal! Some are born smarter, or more beautiful, or with parents of greater status. Some, by contrast, are born weak of body or mind, or with few, if any, talents. All men are different! Yes, the very existence of man is discriminatory! That’s why there is war, violence and unrest. Inequality is not evil. Equality is! What became of the EU, who claimed that all are equal? It is in constant conflict because its tenets go against human nature! The Middle Eastern Federation, which harbors similar sentiments, is constantly mired with sloths! But our Britannia is not like them! We put an end to wars and evolve with every conquest! Britannia alone looks forward and moves forward to a better future! The death of my son Clovis is yet more proof that our empire is evolving. Fight! For the future rests in the hands of its ruler! ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!"

I agree with the sentiment, but it's an unfair generalization on two levels:

1. Things like physical and mental ability are very different than things like gender or skin color. I'm right with you that I think people aren't equal. I know that I'm better than a lot of people, and I think a lot of people are better than I am, and anybody who thinks we are all equally valuable has their head up their ass, in my opinion.

2. Equality can mean a lot of different things. Do I think wages should be different for men and women or minorities and caucasians? Hell ******* no. But I do think wages should be different for more intelligent or physically fit people. On the flipside, I don't think that cultural differences should be ignored, and I think that cultural differences between men and women, minorities and majorities, etc. should be celebrated, while cultural differences between the intelligent and the unintelligent are less important.

TL;DR: You can't generalize A. The people-groups that should or shouldn't be equal, or B. The ways that people-groups should or shouldn't be considered equal in. But speaking as somebody who wouldn't really benefit from this way of thinking, I still think that more intelligent or fit people should be more privileged and are more important.

Well The idea of Having Basic Human rights should be equal for every race, gender, and Intellectual.

A writing from Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
www.tnellen.com/cybereng/harrison.html

It's actually pretty insightful. It's from during the Cold War so you might want to think about how communism influenced this writing.

sometimes, you guys piss me off.

if someone studies night and day to be a doctor, they should be a doctor of they do well. and because they spend their lives saving people, they should make good money.

if another person is a lazy asshole and does nothing. he should get nothing, because he does nothing. There is nothing equal about rewarding the lazy and punishing the worker.

by all means, give them both an equal chance to do great things!
however, do not take away once they have achieved those great things!

Maybe we shouldn't reform our government to make everyone equal, but the least we can do is reform our government so some people aren't handicapped from the start.

Equality is not everyone being the same or getting the same things, equality means that everyone gets WHAT THEY NEED.
