My Values of Equality Milton Friedman, an American economist, in his article “Created Equal”, points out his concept about “Created Equal”. Friedman discusses the different ways that humans are considered to be equal, and then he declares three specific categories for human equality: equality before God, equality of opportunity and equality of outcome. Friedman argues that the first equality is the Founders’ use, the second equality is compatible with liberty, and the third equality is socialism. Equality is such a beautiful word that everyone should appreciate, and Friedman claims his points about its concept from his own comprehension.

The cogent speech, I Have a Speech, by Martin Luther King Jr. tells the story of how all races should be treated equally. Harvey Milk’s, The Hope Speech, is a powerful speech that tells the story of how people are stereotypical to others about their sexual preferences and race.

With these powerful words, one might ask should we all help each other out when in need. No matter how risky the situation is or should we only risk it if it helps our country? At first glance I would say yes, we should assist the Vietnam’s while assisting other countries in the war also.
Every organisation, by law, is required to have a policy in place relating to disability. Another example is The Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 which protects racial equality and ensures that no person is discriminated against on the grounds of their race. It aims to promote good relations between people of different ethnic backgrounds. A final example is The Human Rights Act 1998 that covers all human rights and ensures that all individuals have rights on their side and can take legal action against any person or organisation that disrespects their human rights. These three example all help to protect individuals from discrimination and reflects the idea that everyone, regardless of individual differences should be treated both fairly and equally.
