  6. Well, it depends, you've the "right to remind silent" during a concert, but you don't have the right to make any noise (unless you're one of the performing musicians), yet you're being treated equally when they throw you out! :):)

  8. The spirit of it, yes. BUT - there is that word "right", again, ultimately forcing equality by legal means.
    I think equality needs to be kept on a philosophical/moral plane - once "rights" get involved, some are inevitably going to end up more equal than others.

  9. To be equal in rights and obligations means that one has freedom to be different as much as others have.

  12. As long as your "differentness" doesn't impact others in a negative or hurtful way, then you have the right to be different.

  13. Does equality really exist? If it does, it certainly is different.
