Equality

'All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.' - George Orwell.

Perhaps there never will be equality. I can't really imagine a world with total equality. It just seem over-idealistic. The rich will be richer as wealth accumulates wealth. But hopefully the poor will at least become less poor. People blame inequality on unfairness in the international trade system and globalisation, which is a much over-hyped term. But the true cause probably lies in human weakness. People are selfish. People are greedy. And they just don't care about anything but themselves. This is the world we live in today where a country can actually attack another country without any concrete reason, where people inflict suffering on others without guilt.
If we are lucky, it will probably take another turn of the century perhaps for a world without inequality or perhaps it might not happen at all.

'It is important for each nation to sing its own song and develop according to its own distinctive hystorical rythm." German philosopher,Herder.

  1. "The rich will be richer as wealth accumulates wealth. But hopefully the poor will at least become less poor."

    That's already happening in countries where the government is sitting back and allowing it to do so.

    "If we are lucky, it will probably take another turn of the century perhaps for a world without inequality or perhaps it might not happen at all."

    I'm less interested in whether people are the same, and more interested in raising them above where they are now. Ie it doesn't matter if the rich get richer, provided the poor are also getting richer.
