Questions about the Foundations of Democracy

by Bart Binning
 Why do we seem to be ignoring the “Rule of Law” under the guise of Equality?
Why do many now say we do not believe in Equality, Fairness & Justice?
Why does there seem to be no international recourse for those not following principles of  Equality, Fairness & Justice, or the Rule of Law?

 Our Constitution reads:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness 

We sometimes forget that the concept “All Men are Created Equal” was revolutionary in its day.  Even Aristotle and Plato, who laid the foundation for western thought, believed differently – they wrote to treat unequals equally is as unjust as it is to treat equals unequally.  Plato thought that “everyone has their place," and justice meant they should act and be treated accordingly, with preference.  For both Locke and Hume, philosophers of the enlightenment, the ultimate criterion of justice was utility and the public interest; which meant that justice was what satisfied the interests of the majority (it was OK to disregard the rights of the minority).
