Everyone is equal we all eat, sleep, and shit. A persons actions don't make them lesser or greater. Obviously this is just my opinion though.

No two people are equal from the moment they are born. Someone born into a poor family will struggle through life. Someone born into a wealth family will have that advantage through life. The life of a serial rapist murderer does not hold the same value as someone who has spent their entire life improving the world. So no, in my opinion all lives are not equal. I would even go as far as to say, no two people are equal.

Life being equal depends upon the POV you are looking at it from. My POV is that life has unlimited objective potential in theory. However in practice life is limited by wealth, attitude, and the other subjective limits people place on others or themselves. Instead life should be lived and valued at the highest value possible with the understanding that all will fall short of that theoretical unlimited objective potential.

And I'm not quite sure where you're going with that abnormally deep statement James. Do elaborate



I mean the default is if you exist then you die, you are not entitled to having parents that take care of you, free food or clothes. You're not even entitled to survive your own birth.
This is evident by the fact that not everyone has these and the universe does nothing to make sure they are provided when in need.
I'm not implying anyone should be screwed over to make life easier for someone else. it would be pretty evil to use this to justify that kind of behavior.

Mabe "deserve" isn't the right word for it. Nobody is "owed" a decent life

And that's Sir_James to you!

You don't see animals valuing our lives.

Equality for all is a social dream, goal, and construct. We don't all bear the same genetics, so afraid not. Gifted brats who squander their potential, blue bloods born into privilege with every opportunity to excel, and dyslexic people and late-bloomers make me hesitant to dub high achievers superior. What are your values? A lot of otherwise brilliant savants viewed holistically make poorly balanced people.

Nope.

My cats' lives are definitely more precious than any of yours.

Of that, I'm not sure. Of what I AM sure of, is that ALL Life is precious.

The default isn't really worth mentioning, as anyone with two brain cells to rub together can generally conclude as much. And yes, life is unfair. Explaining a cliche in detail is unnecessary too. However, people are entitled to the basic rights. Misfortune of others would hardly would render it null now would it?

I....guess you're trying to say that people are unequal due to being born in different circumstances and nothing being guaranteed. That, at least makes sense. Your one liner sounded like something out of a bent philosophy article so you'll have to excuse the confusion LOL

Adding a sir gets me all hot and bothered. I think I'll pass
