Is our society becoming egalitarian?

Egalitarianism is a school of thought within political philosophy that builds from the concept of social equality, prioritizing it for all people. It is generally the idea that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or moral status. Society is changing... and we ask the question: are we becoming more egalitarian?

No, our society is not becoming egalitarian

Wealth inequity continues to grow, authoritarian rulers enforce social divides, war continues, and poverty abounds. There is progress in many parts of the world, but society is not becoming more egalitarian.

Yes, our society is becoming more egalitarian

From #BLM to calls for UBI and climate justice, the younger generations are seeing and working to repair the inequities of the past, and in doing so making society more egalitarian.
