Equality is [first being able] to realize that any individual may have his or her own enumerated rights as does the next individual, but does not share these rights implicitly. It is the ability to move past this realization and pretend that one’s own level of respect for any person is unconditional. 

Going back to this because I don’t really remember writing it or what inspired it exactly; I guess I was just thinking about things. 

to clarify: yeah sure, you have and rights as stated in the constitution/whatever, but underneath it all do you really? societal expectations, maybe things a little bit more complicated than basic human rights: do we really all share these in common? No. 

But I wonder: why did I use the word ‘pretend’? I guess it means that you don’t have to really believe that we’re all equal. So am I saying… pretend like the ‘implicit’ inequalities don’t exist? 

I sound like I’m being pretty cynical on equality here. Perhaps not the true definition then, but true enough that it’s relevant to today.

Chocolate comes from cocoa, which is a tree.

That makes it a plant.

Chocolate is salad.

There’s an outbreak of malaria. 

Everyone takes the necessary precautions to avoid mosquitoes. 

You’re outside, when a mosquito lands on your arm. 

You raise your hand to it, ready to kill it. 

Then it squeaks. Curious, you lower your ear to it. 

You can just barely make out “Not all mosquitoes”.
