Example

People not being equals is fact, and its you that has the problem with it.

You arent as intelligent as Einstein, you arent as rich as Bill Gates, you arent as athletic as Hussein Bolt, you dont have the power of Trump, you arent as good at football as Messi, and on and on.

Why is that a problem for you?

The 'universe' does nothing. If someone hates another they are going to either consciously or subconsciously look for information to support their views. Thus reinforcing their opinions. They will then seek on some level to reinforce their beliefs in a self-perpetrating cycle. Call it a feedback loop if you like.

I would argue it does.

And all one has to do is change their mentality and they see a change. Thats evidence.

No. That's called confirmation bias and belief perseverance.

I'm aware i'm not as smart as Einstein. Definitely not as rich as Mr. Gates as for this Hussein Bolt character i'm not sure i might be? As long as he's not related to Usain bolt..

It's not a problem that is not my argument.

You claimed people are equals but as we are not clones of each other then we are not.

It tends to be the political left who convince themselves the fallacy of everyone being equals is true. Its to protect their egos, they cannot handle that there are a lot of people out there better than them.

Wow that explains a lot then. I'm not an atheist either but i'm definitely not religious i'm not arrogant enough to confirm or deny the existence of a creator god/Master simulation. (No that wasn't a shot at you Xeno) :P

And you're wrong for not considering that your god doesnt actually exist so the point still stands.

I have a completely different philosophy and approach to life than you do.

I find it funny that 95% of people think the same way in society, and only 5% make their own minds up about things. Strangely enough its 5% that have the most money too. Coincidence or not?

Can you support this statement with statistics?

Where are you getting these figures? 95% of statistics on forums are made up on the spot. Again your assuming i think like everyone else. I like to think i dont think like everyone else but how can you possibly know that?

Would you want to lock someone up for 5 years if they benefit society hugely?

 You assume all politicians "benefit society hugely" ? !  ...but to the point,  If they are a convicted criminal ,which proves they are not to be trusted,  you would want to return them to power where their dishonest nature could harm an entire county, state, or nation?

       For being a self professed superior being in all ways including intellectually , that seems kinda stupid to me.

Intelligence is a tricky question. What exactly define it? A test. Nah, I think it all comes down to what you're capable of doing with what you know. 

I would call that wisdom, not intelligence.

The article is referring to class not intelligence. Upper class people of course think they are superior whether they earned their class level or not. What to me is interesting is what happens when they lose that upper class status. The Great Depression has ample first person writings from exceedingly rich upper class people who became poor as dirt farmers overnight. Whatever you earned or inherited can disappear like a fart in the wind and with it whatever status you thought you had.

To me,  a person who professes themselves "superior" to anyone else.. demonstrates the opposite.
