But in Western societies, the feeble attempt by some of us
to treat all people as equals
is met with scorn by most of us
who see such effors as creating
a generation of whiners and entitlement seekers
who are bringing our once great countries to ruin.

of not treating all people as equals:
conflict, hatred, suffering, and angst.
Yes, the comparative perception of beauty is cruel.
and the comparative perception of people is cruel.
and cruelty begets cruelty.
