Under the notion that all are created equal, it then would seem to me, (and I am rather slanted in this), that we all have the same potential to do good and bad. That individual growth will shape us, and the world around us. Some may have less to work with, while others have D&G, four-leaf clovers and Iphones shooting out of their blow holes.
If this ideal is to be used by any group or organization, then really, wouldn’t they see the vast sea of variations? Or is that too much to ask for? That the mission statement of a communal philosophy should recognize that we are all full of potential?
I do not remember ever hearing ‘all whom we deem equal, we shall honour them’…. Well, maybe the likes of Hitler…
We all bleed the same. We all feel emotion. We all do the best with what we have. Some manage better than others. Some cannot look to the light.
Have we really evolved to the point of equality, or are we on the brink of sliding back down that slick, hateful hill into the abyss? How equal are we really?
