Back again today with yet another New Age fantasy to debunk – the idea that we’re all equal. Equality is an idea that’s comfortable and makes everyone feel all warm inside, but it’s not a reality. Equality is a lie. Look around you and you can see in fact that hierarchy is the order of the day. Let’s look at some examples.
Physically, is the drunk sluggard who sits on the couch all day of equal value to the one who gets up and works hard everyday?
Politically, are so called black and brown people treated with the same equal respect as so called white people?
Mentally, is the sane, critical thinking and intelligent person of equal merit to the deranged, sociopathic and ignorant person?
Where does equality exist? We are all made of Spirit, but though we are of the same substance that substance is manifested in different degrees. Thus a hierarchy is created. You hear about humans being the most highly evolved species. If there is a high, then there has to be a low. Hierarchy. That’s the reality of the cosmos. We’re not all equal. “Are those who know equal to those who know not?” – al-Qur’an 39:9
