A Stark Social Binary Code

Why is equality among believers important? In what areas is equality most important to you? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 258).

Throughout history there seems to be little middle ground. One is either more equal than others or cannon fodder. A quick glance at American history makes this clear. Many great achievements including the transcontinental railroad  and the Hoover dam utilized a  significant cadre of cannon fodder. The entrepreneurs profited and the cannon fodder died--their plight really not significantly different from the abuses of slavery.

The only escape from this stark social binary code of abuse is essential human equality.  Religion alone doesn't cut it as rapacious tycoons can readily think of themselves as Christians with divine destinies.  Without ever-present essential human equality, life becomes a callus sporting spree.  When uncompromising human respect is enforced, there will always be an outcry from those who think life is a game in which all collateral cost is fully justified or can be ignored for the sake of devilish fun.
