We are all equal! Hallelujah! Yes indeed! It seems the moment mankind set foot on planet Earth the argument about equality began. That is to say all humans are proclaimed equal, above all in rights, status and opportunities.
What a load of donkey dung that is. There has never been equality nor will there ever be equality. Ever.
It does sound lovely though. All warm and fuzzy, and noble: All men are created equal, an ‘immortal declaration,’ some call it. In reality though it is nothing more than, at best, a well-meaning jingoism and at worst a brazen lie trotted out by the deceitful and corrupt to try and keep the masses in line.
In far too many scenarios around the world when someone gets to feeling the pangs of equality, they very quickly realize only one option becomes available to them- rebellion. They need to take up arms in order to achieve equality. There’s something obscene about that. Even in so called developed countries where logic and reason and laws govern the state of daily living, equality is non existent. Take a drive through a ghetto some time.
But there’s an even greater obscenity. If the rebel doesn’t end up dead or in jail for a very long time, if in fact they win the fight for equality, all that happens is a role change; the former equality oppressors become the oppressed; they become the new “unequal” and the former rebel becomes the new “more equal.” Funny isn’t it, equality never seems to work downwards.
Equality is one of the big lies. Right up there with love being king and justice being available to all. Just think, in the last worldwide skirmish, when a man demonized and tried ethically cleansing an entire population, over 60 million people were killed. Some estimate the figure to be over 70 million. That was the World War 2 and the idea was to exterminate Jews and establish a master race.
There is a very simple and basic reason why there will never be equality in ego. Ego operates on separateness and specialness. If there came a moment the entire human race came to a realization that everyone was equal in that moment ego would cease to exist. And that cannot be allowed to happen.
There is another aspect to this equation. All men are not created equal. Not in ego.
Everyone arrives with their own agenda and a dream to dream. There’s a reason for the numerous personalities, traits, likes, dislikes, hates, repugnance and so on. It’s like a cast of a huge, weird, Z class movie with copious twisted subplots.
In Creation, yes, we are all one and the same. In ego no. As the Yiddish proverb says:
Everyone is kneaded out of the same dough but not baked in the same oven.
