Technically, we are not truly equal in America. There are certain laws that limit equality, and some people’s opinions force equality to be impossible. Equality may not ever actually be possible. People will still have their opinions, and those opinions and thoughts are what sets equality back. If everyone in a society was equal, there might be some problems. If everyone was equal, who would rule? Certain laws would be unmade that make society civil. Also, hard work would not be rewarded, therefore there is no motivation.
