#1. As many political writers have pointed out, commitment to political equality is not an empirical claim that people are clones. - Author: Steven Pinker
Political Equality quotes by Steven Pinker
#2. I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races: that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Political Equality quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#3. To deny political equality is to rob the ostracised of all self-respect; of credit in the market place; of recompense in the world of work; of a voice among those who make and administer the law; a choice in the jury before whom they are tried, and in the judge who decides their punishment. - Author: Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Political Equality quotes by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
#4. For two centuries supporters of the Electoral College have built their arguments on a series of faulty premises. The Electoral College is a gross violation of the cherished value of political equality. At the same time, it does not protect the interests of small states or racial minorities, nor does it serve as a bastion of federalism. Instead the Electoral College distorts the presidential campaign so that candidates ignore most small states - and many large ones - and pay little attention to minorities. - Author: George C. Edwards III
Political Equality quotes by George C. Edwards III
#5. Human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights. - Author: Hillary Clinton
Political Equality quotes by Hillary Clinton
#6. Our socialism does not include extreme materialistic concepts, since Indonesia is primarily a God-fearing, God-loving nation. Our socialism is a mixture. We draw political equality from the American Declaration of Independence. We draw spiritual equality from Islam and Christianity. We draw scientific equality from Marx. - Author: Sukarno
Political Equality quotes by Sukarno
#7. He who confuses political liberty with freedom and political equality with similarity has never thought for five minutes about either. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Political Equality quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#8. Feminism is a belief that although women and men are inherently of equal worth, most societies privilege men as a group. As a result, social movements are necessary to achieve political equality between women and men, with the understanding that gender always intersects with other social hierarchies. - Author: Estelle Freedman
Political Equality quotes by Estelle Freedman
#9. Digital dictatorships are not the only danger awaiting us. Alongside liberty, liberal order has also set great store by the value of equality. Liberalism always cherished political equality, and it gradually came to realise that economic equality is almost as important. For without a social safety net and a modicum of economic equality, liberty is meaningless. But just as Big Data algorithms might extinguish liberty, they might simultaneously create the most unequal societies that ever existed. All wealth and power might be concentrated in the hands of a tiny elite, while most people will suffer not from exploitation, but from something far worse – irrelevance. - Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Political Equality quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#10. There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities. - Author: Theodore Roosevelt
Political Equality quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#11. You cannot extend the mastery of government over the daily life of a people without somewhere making it master of people's souls and thoughts ... Every step in that direction poisons the very roots of liberalism. It poisons political equality, free speech, free press, and equality of opportunity. It is the road not to more liberty but to less liberty. - Author: Herbert Hoover
Political Equality quotes by Herbert Hoover
#12. It is not my ambition to marry a white woman or swim in a white pool. It is political equality that we want. - Author: Nelson Mandela
Political Equality quotes by Nelson Mandela
#13. I think that we must face the fact that in reality, you cannot have economic and political equality without having some form of social equality. I think this is inevitable. - Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.
Political Equality quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#14. To refuse political equality is to rob the ostracized of all self-respect. - Author: Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Political Equality quotes by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
#15. Feminism has exceeded its proper mission of seeking political equality for women and has ended by rejecting contingency, that is, human limitation by nature or fate. - Author: Camille Paglia
Political Equality quotes by Camille Paglia
#16. If we truly understand, remember, and love the people of Indonesia, let us accept this principle of social justice, that is, not only political equality, but we must create equality in the economic field, too, which means the best possible well-being. - Author: Sukarno
Political Equality quotes by Sukarno
#17. The friend of the present order of things condemns all political speculations in the gross. - Author: Thomas Malthus
Political Equality quotes by Thomas Malthus
#18. Stand up, speak out, and be bold. Screw political correctness. Never let them tell you to sit down and shut up. - Author: Sarah Palin
Political Equality quotes by Sarah Palin
#19. This has been one of the more comedic aspects of this 72 hours - watching a cavalcade of extremely wealthy pundits, editorialists and political operatives from New York and Washington tell me how rural Americans won't stand for this. - Author: Josh Marshall
Political Equality quotes by Josh Marshall
#20. The Point, not unlike the Communist Chinese, the ACLU abhors individual religious freedom, and it supports only those civil liberties that fit its narrow political agenda. - Author: Mark Hyman, M.D.
Political Equality quotes by Mark Hyman, M.D.

Political Equality quotes by Ahmed Padia Binkatabana
#22. The truth is, Colonel, that there's no divine spark, bless you. There's many a man alive no more value than a dead dog. Believe me, when you've seen them hang each other...Equality? Christ in Heaven. What I'm fighting for is the right to prove I'm a better man than many. Where have you seen this divine spark in operation, Colonel? Where have you noted this magnificent equality? The Great White Joker in the Sky dooms us all to stupidity or poverty from birth. no two things on earth are equal or have an equal chance, not a leaf nor a tree. There's many a man worse than me, and some better, but I don't think race or country matters a damn. What matters is justice. 'Tis why I'm here. I'll be treated as I deserve, not as my father deserved. I'm Kilrain, and I God damn all gentlemen. I don't know who me father was and I don't give a damn. There's only one aristocracy, and that's right here - " he tapped his white skull with a thick finger - "and YOU, Colonel laddie, are a member of it and don't even know it. You are damned good at everything I've seen you do, a lovely soldier, an honest man, and you got a good heart on you too, which is rare in clever men. Strange thing. I'm not a clever man meself, but I know it when I run across it. The strange and marvelous thing about you, Colonel darlin', is that you believe in mankind, even preachers, whereas when you've got my great experience of the world you will have learned that good men are rare, much rarer than you think. - Author: Michael Shaara
Political Equality quotes by Michael Shaara
#23. We are going to have the candidate of food stamps, the finest food-stamp president in the American history, in Barack Obama, and we are going to have a candidate of paychecks. - Author: Newt Gingrich
Political Equality quotes by Newt Gingrich

Political Equality quotes by Demi Lovato
#25. The world needs madness, a madness for justice, a madness for harmony, a madness for equality, a madness for humanitarian glory. If everyone had the madness for doing good, there wouldn't be any misery in the world. So, be mad, be furious, be rebellious towards every bit of misery, inequality and injustice in the world. Remember, every injustice anywhere in the world is your business, every misery anywhere in the world is your business, every segregation anywhere in the world is your business. Human condition anywhere in the world is your business. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Political Equality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#26. When women are pessimistic about their political strength and feel hopeless about changing the conditions of their lives, it is almost as if they do not believe that democracy means the country belongs to them. But it's true. - Author: Naomi Wolf
Political Equality quotes by Naomi Wolf

Political Equality quotes by Denise Mina
#28. Political systems are run by self-selecting politicians. We don't draft people; it's not jury duty. - Author: P. J. O'Rourke
Political Equality quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#29. There is no easy solution to the problem of political ignorance. But we can significantly mitigate it by making more of our decisions by "voting with our feet" and fewer at the ballot box. Two types of foot voting have important informational advantages over ballot box voting. The first is when we vote with our feet in the private sector, by choosing which products to buy or which civil society organizations to join. The other is choosing what state or local government to live under in a federal system - a decision often influenced by the quality of those jurisdictions' public policy. - Author: Ilya Somin
Political Equality quotes by Ilya Somin
#30. Why should we cherish "objectivity", as if ideas were innocent, as if they don't serve one interest or another? Surely, we want to be objective if that means telling the truth as we see it, not concealing information that may be embarrassing to our point of view. But we don't want to be objective if it means pretending that ideas don't play a part in the social struggles of our time, that we don't take sides in those struggles.

Indeed, it is impossible to be neutral. In a world already moving in certain directions, where wealth and power are already distributed in certain ways, neutrality means accepting the way things are now. It is a world of clashing interests – war against peace, nationalism against internationalism, equality against greed, and democracy against elitism – and it seems to me both impossible and undesirable to be neutral in those conflicts. - Author: Howard Zinn
Political Equality quotes by Howard Zinn
#31. It is that the Mail constantly dares to stand up to the liberal-left consensus that dominates so many areas of British life and instead represents the views of the ordinary people who are our readers and who don't have a voice in today's political landscape and are too often ignored by today's ruling elite. - Author: Paul Dacre
Political Equality quotes by Paul Dacre
#32. To understand what ended up happening in the 2016 presidential election, you have to understand this: When protests toppled the Ukrainian government, Putin interpreted that as the United States coming into Russia, akin to an act of war; when he launched his counterattack - annexing Crimea, creeping into eastern Ukraine - he weaponized information and showed a willingness to lie, using traditional media like television, and new media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, to spread disinformation into open, Western societies like a virus. Eventually, the Russians would come into America, as they believed we'd gone into Ukraine. They took advantage of the fact that we were worn down by decades of political polarization and the balkanization of our media. America's antibodies to the sickness of Russian disinformation were weak, if they were there at all. - Author: Ben Rhodes
Political Equality quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#33. As Albert Camus wrote, the doctor's role is as a witness – to witness authentically the reality of humanity, and to speak out against the horrors of political inaction... The only crime equaling inhumanity is the crime of indifference, silence, and forgetting. - Author: James Orbinski
Political Equality quotes by James Orbinski
#34. I'm not particularly political. I'm not particularly denominational. I'm not worried about any of that. - Author: T.D. Jakes
Political Equality quotes by T.D. Jakes
#35. Like any overt school of mysticism, a movement seeking to achieve a vicious goal has to invoke the higher mysteries of an incomprehensible authority. An unread and unreadable book serves this purpose. It does not count on men's intelligence, but on their weaknesses, pretensions and fears. It is not a tool of enlightenment, but of intellectual intimidation. It is not aimed at the reader's understanding, but at his inferiority complex.
An intelligent man will reject such a book with contemptuous indignation, refusing to waste his time on untangling what he perceives to be gibberish - which is part of the book's technique: the man able to refute its arguments will not (unless he has the endurance of an elephant and the patience of a martyr). A young man of average intelligence - particularly a student of philosophy or of political science - under a barrage of authoritative pronouncements acclaiming the book as "scholarly," "significant," "profound," will take the blame for his failure to understand. More often than not, he will assume that the book's theory has been scientifically proved and that he alone is unable to grasp it; anxious, above all, to hide his inability, he will profess agreement, and the less his understanding, the louder his agreement - while the rest of the class are going through the same mental process. Most of them will accept the book's doctrine, reluctantly and uneasily, and lose their intellectual integrity, condemning themselves to a chronic fog of - Author: Ayn Rand
Political Equality quotes by Ayn Rand
#36. Religions centered on the worship of a male God create "moods" and "motivations" that keep women in a state of psychological dependence on men and male authority, while at the same legitimating the political and social authority of fathers and sons in the institutions of society. - Author: Carol P. Christ
Political Equality quotes by Carol P. Christ
#37. Materialism is not fundamentally an economic problem, but a cultural one ... a spiritual issue. It runs to the depths of our souls, and, for this reason, needs to be understood less in terms of budgets or fiscal cycles and more in terms of where we locate the sacred, of where we search for meaning and transcendence, and of how we think about justice, equality, and the future of our world. - Author: Robert Wuthnow
Political Equality quotes by Robert Wuthnow
#38. Therefore, I feel convinced that any political picture can be changed to suit the needs of the powers that be. - Author: Thor Heyerdahl
Political Equality quotes by Thor Heyerdahl
#39. A minority group has 'arrived' only when it has the right to produce some fools and scoundrels without the entire group paying for it. - Author: Carl T. Rowan
Political Equality quotes by Carl T. Rowan
#40. I am firmly opposed to the government entering into any business the major purpose of which is competition with our citizens ... for the Federal Government deliberately to go out to build up and expand ... a power and manufacturing business is to break down the initiative and enterprise of the American people; it is the destruction of equality of opportunity amongst our people, it is the negation of the ideals upon which our civilization has been based. - Author: Herbert Hoover
Political Equality quotes by Herbert Hoover
#41. There is every reason to believe that if humans had not arrived on the scene, the Neanderthals would be there still, along with the wild horses and the woolly rhinos. With the capacity to represent the world in signs and symbols comes the capacity to change it, which, as it happens, is also the capacity to destroy it. - Author: Elizabeth Kolbert
Political Equality quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert
#42. She thought it funny how the poor environment had been raped just fine until there was a sufficient excess of the people who had effected the raping to produce sufficient numbers of themselves who were sufficiently idle that they might begin to protest the raping of the environment, which was irretrievably lost to the raping by that point.
And this would be the great soothing cathedral music, the stopping of the chainsaws amid the patter of acid rain, that all good citizens would listen to for the quarter-century it took them all to wire up to cyberspace and forget about the lost hopeless run-over gang-ridden land, reproducing madly still all the while, inside their bunkers listening to NPR. - Author: Padgett Powell
Political Equality quotes by Padgett Powell
#43. Thought ... is still possible, and no doubt actual, wherever men live under the conditions of political freedom. Unfortunately ... no other human capacity is so vulnerable, and it is in fact far easier to act under conditions of tyranny than it is to think. - Author: Hannah Arendt
Political Equality quotes by Hannah Arendt
#44. There are always those perfect times with the people we love, those moments of joy and equality that sustain us later on ... These moments are the foundation upon which we build the house that will shelter us into our final years, so that when love calls out, "How far would you go for me?" you can look it in the eye and say truthfully, "Farther than you would ever have thought was possible. - Author: Ann Patchett
Political Equality quotes by Ann Patchett
#45. It's the spring of 2012, that the [Barak] Obama administration would be embracing the argument that the Affordable Care Act was a tax, and that was going to, itself, be a political albatross. - Author: Donald Verrilli Jr.
Political Equality quotes by Donald Verrilli Jr.
#46. The more dynamic the capitalistic expansion, the greater the disparity. It is from the disparity that we are going to get all the political upheaval for the next few years. - Author: Robert D. Kaplan
Political Equality quotes by Robert D. Kaplan
#47. North Carolina offers a window into what politics without guardrails looks like - and a possible glimpse into America's future. When partisan rivals become enemies, political competition descends into warfare, and our institutions turn into weapons. The result is a system hovering constantly on the brink of crisis. - Author: Steven Levitsky
Political Equality quotes by Steven Levitsky
#48. All of the fucking in "The Art of Joy" could put it in a class with "Story of O" or "The Sexual Life of Catherine M." But Sapienza's novel is about sex only insofar as an account of a woman's artistic, intellectual, and political maturation must include her sexual career. Or, better, the discovery of pleasure initiates Modesta's appetite more generally - for knowledge, for experience, for autonomy. It turns her outward, toward nonsexual things, by inwardly sustaining her. Her childish sadism is less sexual than it is basically libidinal: her erotic interest in her sister's or St. Agatha's pain, or the way in which her hatred of Leonora transmutes into arousal - these are signs of an exultant urge to live. "The real way of living is to answer to one's wants," D. H. Lawrence says in a letter (written, incidentally, from Italy). "I want that liberty, I want that woman, I want that pound of peaches, I want to go to sleep, I want to go to the pub and have a good time, I want to look abeastly swell today, I want to kiss that girl, I want to insult that man. - Author: Disobedience Is A Virtue On Goliarda Sapienza S The Art Of Joy The New Yorker
Political Equality quotes by Disobedience Is A Virtue On Goliarda Sapienza S The Art Of Joy The New Yorker
#49. Nothing universal can be rationally affirmed on any moral, or any political subject. Pure metaphysical abstraction does not belong to these matters. The lines of morality are not like the ideal lines of mathematics. They are broad and deep as well as long. They admit of exceptions; they demand modifications. These exceptions and modifications are not made by the process of logic, but by the rules of prudence. Prudence is not only the first in rank of the virtues political and moral, but she is the director, the regulator, the standard of them all. ­Metaphysics cannot live without ­definition; but prudence is cautious how she defines. - Author: Edmund Burke
Political Equality quotes by Edmund Burke
#50. Power from any source tends to create an appetite for additional power. It was almost inevitable that the super-rich would one day aspire to control not only their own wealth, but the wealth of the whole world. To achieve this, they were perfectly willing to feed the ambitions of the power-hungry political conspirators who were committed to the overthrow of all existing governments and the establishment of a central worldwide dictatorship. - Author: W. Cleon Skousen
Political Equality quotes by W. Cleon Skousen
#51. If there is any political moral to be found in this world," Stencil once wrote in his journal, "it is that we carry on the business of this century with an intolerable double vision. Right and Left; the hothouse and the street. The Right can only live and work hermetically, in the hothouses of the past, while outside the Left prosecute their affairs in the streets by manipulated mob violence. And cannot live but in the dreamscape of the future.
"What of the real present, the men-of-no-politics, the once-respectable Golden Mean? Obsolete; in any case, lost sight of. In a West of such extremes we can expect, at the very least, a highly 'alienated' populace within not many more years. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Political Equality quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#52. The days of discriminating against religious institutions simply because they are religious must come to an end. - Author: George W. Bush
Political Equality quotes by George W. Bush
#53. Preaching is indeed a political act. - Author: E. Lee Hancock
Political Equality quotes by E. Lee Hancock
