How would it even be possible for everybody to be equal? If everybody were equal, there'd be exceptionalism, there'd be no Wayne Gretzky, no Micheal Jordan, no Eddie Van Halen, no Joe Montana, no Richard Petty, no um, whoever you think is the best singer, etc. What fun would there be if we were all mediocre?
Yes that would be really bad if everyone was not equal.What if their was ice cream and you wanted some but the other kids got ice cream and you didn't get any because of your race or beliefs or whatever.You would be :'( that you were not considered equal to the other kids.That is just one brilliant example that proves my point.
Everyone is NOT equal, and no amount of "field leveling" and "bar-lowering" can change that. People are born with different talents, different IQ's, and different ways of thinking. Some people with great talents and gifts will not make much of themselves, and some people with few advantages will do great things. It depends a lot on how much grit a person has, and how badly they want to succeed, and no amount of government intervention can change this reality.
No. Thank god, that the motivated and exceptional people are able to succeed and excel. My regret is that the world at large (especially America) coddles the bottom-feeders, rather than allowing them to go the way of the Dodo.
