Other Alternate Realities

Equality

Skip Navigation LinksHome Page > Reality > Equality

It was difficult to decide under which main heading to place this as it pertains to many top-level subjects. I finally chose Reality because of how subjective the topic really is to those for whom it is often directed. Equality is an illusion. I suggest that you visit the section on Privilege for further clarification.

The part of the US Constitution that goes: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” is nothing more than feel-good rhetoric. It was also hypocritical when it was written because neither women nor blacks of any gender were included as is demonstrated by slavery and the need for women’s rights.

It should be noted at this point that the last phrase “pursuit of happiness” replaces the word “property” because of slavery.

A truly egalitarian society is not possible due to all of our evolutionary debris in terms of DNA and learned behavior.
