Equality before the law is essential, in terms of how it is applied to people, and this is enforced more successfully in the United States than most other countries.
However, our inequalities are what make Americans thrive and work so well together. We should embrace these differences– not suppress them. They are the gems which make our country so special and so unique. Not to mention, it’s what makes us sovereign; the shining city on the hill.
Yes, we are all equal under the law– and rightfully so– but our conflicting characteristics, ambitions, goals, dreams, interests, aspirations– our DIVERSITY– is what truly makes this country continue to grow economically and thrive strategically… If we were all equal, we would never have the opportunity to pursue our own version of the American dream, for we wouldn’t have the freedom to do so.
So yes– equality is silly. Makes you wonder why so many ppl our age advocate for this foolishness. I suppose silly people lack the ability to connect these dots that have been right in front of all of us this entire time….?!
Thus, our INEQUALITIES are what drive capitalistic societies into becoming the FAIREST systems of government, in the world.
