Some people argue that inequality is natural while others maintain that it is equality which is natural and the inequalities which we notice around us are created by society. Which view do you support? Give reasons.
Both sect of view differs from the idea of equality. Some says it’s natural while others claim it to be a creation of the society. Equality is the fact of being equal or having the same value. It is the equal treatment of people irrespective of their social, cultural or economic differences without any sense of.
There is fine difference between inequality and equality. Inequality is the result of unequal opportunities in the society and exploitation by the dominant. Natural inequalities are the different capability, talents and physical- emotional skills.
Different social situations and opportunity provides a field to these individual to develop their interest and talents. There are different roles assigned to people for a balanced and smooth running of the society but these are sometimes decided and manipulated by the society on the basis for race, gender, caste, class, language etc which creates stereotype and inequality.
Thus, I support the second view which says that is equality which is natural and the inequalities which we notice around us are created by the society. Society has provided us with labels which creates inequality within people.
