No, thats ******* ridiculous

That is the idea that fueled the governments pre-demoracy. If you weren't born into royalty, then you don't have a chance. The idea of equality has changed this. We can't completely level the playing field. but its our duty to our fellow man to at least try

No, you misunderstood.
What you're saying is that in a pre-democracy everyone was different and if you were a bad kind of different instead of a good kind, you wouldn't be accepted at all and there would be nothing you could do to change that.

What he's saying is that everyone is different, therefore unique and everyone should learn to appreciate and accept that, regardless of how different an individual is.

Well said. The idea that all men are equal is the basis of the government, not a statement about reality.
