Must freedom and equality conflict? Must freedom and equality conflict?


They often tend to, but they can also coexist, or even have a cause-effect relationship.

Freedoms where humans are left to their own devices returns us to human nature, and the sometimes divisive, discriminating tendencies we have.  We divide ourselves into rich and poor, dark and light, etc.

But freedom and equality coexist nicely at times as well.  Take for example our freedom to worship, and inside most churches there is an equality in the eyes of God (or gods).

The freedoms we are given in the Bill of Rights, such as free speech or even the right to bear arms are freedoms given to everyone in the society, and they can cause equality between citizens too.

Great question.
