"All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others."

- Animal Farm by George Orwell

 

Is egalitarianism true, or is it nothing more than a mere fallacy? Our socioeconomic status alone does not have everything to do with our equality, however, it sets a good example. Some people are born into wealthy families while, on the other hand, others are born into middle-class or poor families.  Are we truly equal? One may think "Well, you can always climb the pyramid through hard work and determination", but what if you simply can't? For example, let's say one is handicapped and is born into a poor family. How does he or she rise? She can't. And here there is my point. Perhaps some people are more equal than others. What are your thoughts?
