Small talk about inequality.

This idea came to me today as I was bound to finish an essay for school.
Perhaps 19th-century French dramatist Henry Becque said it the clearest: "What makes equality such a difficult business is that we only want it with our superiors."
In other words, people want to be equal with those above them on the social scale; but not many would be willing to limit their privileges and advantages by granting equality to those they consider to be below them.
