If “Current Events” is not an appropriate place for this topic, please move the thread. With all due respect to the Declaration of Independence, all men are not created equal. Some people are born into poverty. Some men are born into wealth. Some are born with high IQ. Some are born with severe physical and mental handicaps. Some are born with retarded. Some are born with Down’s syndrome. Some are born to incompetent parents. Some are born to influential parents. Those handicapped and born into bad poor parents might never become independent. They will not have as much life and liberty as those porn under more favorable circumstances. Many people, through practically no fault of their own, will forever be dependent on others. When you are dependent on others, you are not truly free.
