"Which is better, to see everyone as your equal or to love everyone?
Equal, as to be the same level, Son is equal to Father and Mother equal to her Daughter, Both work together to find an answer to their questions equally. (if indeed you would do this)
A Thief equal to a Doctor and Murderer equal to a Father of ten children and supports them, these deserve equal treatment and should respected equally and their words to be heard and should not be put down.
And a Child cannot be discipline by His or Her parents for this would not sign equality.

To Love, to not lie because you love them, to not steal, to not harm, to not oppress, to not rape, to not slander, to not boast and to not remember their wrongs as to forgive them and lift them up when even greater or lesser is the offence, even if this person is lesser than you or greater than you, is because you love them.

If you love some one you would not steal from them and if by law you must not steal, then this law has been fulfilled.
If you love someone you would not Murder them, and if by law you must not Murder, then this Law has been fulfilled.
If you love someone you would not rape them, and if by law you must not rape, then this law has been fulfilled.

By love, people can be drawn together, by love people can be healed, by love people support each other, by love people build together, by love we can be rescued, even if by death itself, there is hope, with love.

"Equality"... I wonder how much do you really love the people- if not at all..."


As for me, I chose to love freely, for I am a son of a father, and he disciplined me so I would know in my heart not to do wrong, if I was not disciplined, it would've meant he didn't love me and I would suffer for my wrongs.
But I am Loved by my father and he made me learn my wrong's and to learn good so that I may do good as I will to you all.

What do you choose?

I like to have an equal, but then again we need to have failures in the world. If everything was always a draw, where would the profit be?.

Nah but seriously, equality is something mankind created. We don't need a word to accept everyone equally, but people will always think they are above someone. Discipline has nothing to do with equality, and that is where humanity has created a disconnect.

I never for one second think I'm better than anyone, but I probably am if I show you why. I stay humble and true, but don't be surprised if I exceed your expectations.

Love someone. Anyone can love, just like everyone can be treated equally, we just don't do it, why? Because we need to create the imbalance. That's just life with a mind of equality and love, there can never be equilibrium, because the world needs a challenge.

Equality in all aspects of life is impossible. And I don't believe people are equal.

It is easiest if the law treats everyone as equal for the sake of fairness and simplicity in interpreting law, but that does not mean people are actually equal. A person is worth as much as he/she has or is able to contribute to the group without unduly burdening his fellow citizens.

Children are not equal to their parents. The parents have more value because they're able to immediately contribute and they have the chance to raise their children to be upstanding citizens who will also contribute. Children ought to obey their parents until they have enough experience and a foundation on which they can stand on their own, especially if the parents are providing for them.

You should not need to love someone to respect them as fellow citizens. In fact, most people are incapable of doing so.

Everyone is BORN equal. Past that, their actions define their 'worth'.
Basically, you can't judge the worth of a person until you have seen their actions, so you should treat them as your equals until then.

Yeah, if I knew what the heck he was parrot-and-pasting to sound Deep, I'd have some cultural grounding to even try and answer.

I don't.

... Have you ever seen Code Geass ? Sadly, most of us fellow humans aren't born equal, whether it'd be in right or in opportunities to lead a successful life. A north Korean kid will probably never be equal to a kid born in the U.S.A. , they will never get the same education, they will never grow up in a similar environment, therefore to say that American kid deserves more respect than the Korean one because he did remarkable deeds is completly absurd.

What a great series

To say one can truly judge a person is therefore totally irrelevant, one cannot understand the complexity of the human mind.

Equality is a profound idea but it's not necessarily good on it's own. Love is poorly defined. It's an overused word, maybe you are talking about compassion? Empathy?

Either way I don't see the two as comparable. In any given situation it can be best to have equality, "love", both, or neither. Context is everything.

Everyone in animal farm is equal, but some animals are more equal than others

Trick question. If you see everyone as equal then you do love everyone.(unless you don't love anyone at all which is ridiculous)

False.
We are all born innocent, not equal though. I agree with the second part that yu said though.

Equality in all things is a unachievable myth . And not every soul on this Earth is worthy of love. And anyone who thinks either is possible is a fool.

Equality is something we wish to attain but will NEVER attain.

getting as close to it as possible is a GOOD THING but we will never reach true equality EVER
