This paper begs the question of "all men being created equal". It argues that as much as society would like to think of itself of democratic and supportive of equality, most people in society are oppressed in one way or another due to a physical, cultural, social or religious "handicap".

From the paper:

"The term equality has innumerable connotations. It may denote being exactly alike or of comparable value. Equality is usually associated with advantages and discussed when there is a situation wherein a subject is being deprived of a prerogative.
The phrase ?equality for all? has a nice ring to it but what exactly does it entail. It forms an image of the ultimate utopia, filled with peace, brotherhood, and justice but ?What are we aiming to be equal in?? and more to the point ?Whom do we want to be equal to??"
