What about access to resource / opportunity. Also family circumstance / environment / status. All men are not born / created equal.
You’re basically saying that kings and aristocrats exist. Everybody knew that (I don’t think anyone doubted the physical existence of George III), so it obviously can’t have been what the Declaration of Independence meant. Why are we even discussing this?
What the Declaration of Independence seems to mean (to me atleast) is that these dynasties of kings and aristocrats don’t exist deservedly or “naturally”.
I’m sorry if I didn’t make myself clear. The topic asked for examples of bad logic. The use of the idea “all men are created equal” by people absolving themselves any responsibility for the destitute and failures in societies today is the use of bad logic I was trying to refer too.
This particular idea itself (not the entire declaration of independence), however, is poorly phased and open to ridicule because of its obvious falseness. Political ideas are routinely used and interpreted in ways that demonstate poor or bad lagic. All I was trying to point out was the pained feeling I get when I here someone using and idea like this one to argue an inconsistent and ridiculous position.
I have not been posting long and am beginning to learn very quickly that I need to make my ideas as clear as absolutely possible. (as I would argue the authors of this idea probably should have)
