Equality
Equality

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ”
Galations 3:28

What is equality? In these modern time it can be defined as a general premise that people should be treated as equals on certain dimensions such as religiously, politically, economically, socially, or culturally. Almost every country, school and/or form of government in the world theoretically practices equality. However, if we are rational people we can easily note that although there are rules that reinforce equality in most places, not everyone is equal. In essence most people are hypocrites who say they stand for equality, but in reality just love those moments when they can prove themselves to be superior to others. Just think about that day in school when your classmate was being picked on by bullies or even worse, excluded from the social groups that inevitably form. How about the boss at work who talks to his employees like they were inferior just because they make less money? Would you like to be in these situation? People have forgotten that equality means much more than just following rules and laws that protect people; it means treating others with utmost respect at all times, their economic, social,and/or religious situation not withstanding. People who do not stand up for equality are cowards, ignorant and are not following the word of the lord.

The lack of equality has become a serious issue, especially in school in the form of bullying. I'm not talking about the physical type of bullying which is relatively under control, but the other type. The emotional type. This is the worse given that it can cause a diminished self esteem, anxiety disorders, and even suicide in the victims. Sometimes it can be the massive spreading of an embarrassing rumor about the person and other times it can be as simple as excluding people from the cliques that form in schools, but both are very significant and can lead to major problems. The sad part is that the guilty ones are totally conscious of their actions and not only do they not care about the devastating effects of their bullying, but many even look forward to the moments in which they can make themselves feel better by putting others down.

The other type of inequality in today's world is the one caused by economics. There is nothing wrong with being more monetarily successful than others, but this doesn't mean you can treat them like crap over it. This is what happens in the world now a days and it has to stop. The elites genuinely think that the poor are inferior and do everything they can to demean them, be it by verbally expressing their superiority or simply ignoring their existence which is arguably worse. When a rich person walks by a poor one and completely disregards them they are exercising one of the worst types of unfairness, even worse than verbal abuse.

It is very sad that equality is so diminished in our world. Most people say they treat other with equality, arguing that they never physically hurt or verbally abuse anyone. However, the damage they can do with a weapon called isolation can be just as hurtful. Just because you don't kill or physically hurt anyone, it doesn't mean you aren't acting in despicable ways. Sometimes, excluding someone or disregarding his human qualities can be just as damaging. The next time you are in the presence of unfairness, just think of God and his ideals. If you do, you'll realize God doesn't care about superiority, he only cares about equality. Its time to take a stand and make this world a more equal and fair place.
