RE: Is inequality natural?

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

This is a very interesting topic, and I'll try my best to use the best of my English to explain my point.

I understand that inequality is found in nature everywhere, and that people are also different by nature. But the main problem in my opinion is that we need some kind of equality for people to have any freedom. I can't be truly free if someone has so much more opportunities than me. I think we should all have a fair base to grow, and that can only be achieved if we have some kind of equality.

When I was travelling I found out that you only need 3 things to live: Food, health and shelter. I you have these 3 things you can thrive and go after anything. So my point of view is if we can give this 3 thing to everybody, we will have some kind of equality, and people will be able to pursue anything they want.

But I feel like I need to say this: I'm no expert on the subject, just an observer of how life has been so far.

Thanks for opening this conversation!
Keep sharing and keep shining!

Thanks for commenting! Well, I can start saying that I have had similar experiences and I agree with you on this.

When I was travelling I found out that you only need 3 things to live: Food, health and shelter. I you have these 3 things you can thrive and go after anything.

About the equality of opportunities I actually write this part almost at the end.

For the rest, I believe that the only equality that could be achieved would be in the opportunities that society can offer us. Notice that I am not saying the opportunities that life can offer us because these differ totally from person to person

But this has the problem of society. For thousands of years there has not been a society created by human beings where there are no differences in opportunities, even ensuring a roof, health and food for all. And it is that if we speak of society, we speak of a "homogeneous" mass of people and we forget that this mass is made up of individuals who differ from each other in tastes, opinions, feelings and much more (for this reason I put the homogeneous word in quotation marks, it may look like this but it is not).

But I feel like I need to say this: I'm no expert on the subject, just an observer of how life has been so far.

I also include myself in what you say, I am not an expert, I only dedicate myself to observe, I analyze what is happening around me and I also love reading history books. The latter has made me see that despite the modernity that we currently enjoy, the social organization of human beings has not changed in thousands of years.

A fraternal greeting!
