Sometimes I wonder if almost all the problems in the world could be fixed by:

Not considering people themselves as having different values/worths than each other.

Even in lowkey ways! Like making a statement by putting someone down instead of refuting their ideas, or at worst, saying they believe in terrible things.

Or implying there's anything lesser or greater (more or less worthful) about a person because of {how strong or weak they are, how often they have sex, how many friends they have, etc. etc.}

When you think of it that way, it really seems like unconscious natural eugenics o,o

And perhaps the problem with "moralities" isn't morality/ethics and saying some things/ideas/ideologies/actions are better or worse than others,

But that we express it in terms of relative value of peoples' lives? Eg, if you don't do good things then you're not a good person, you're lesser or gross.

And perhaps that applies to all sides. Eg, saying someone is a worthless or lesser person because they don't live according to your bible, or because they practice racist ways of life.
