Hey dr. phil
I think if people address situations with an attitude of humbleness, if people can dispassionantly let go of the fact that everyone wants to be right, and detatch from our ego's we might actually get somewhere. I think biases and judgements will continue to ezist, we can't possibly look at everything from all perspectives and understand everything, but we can try to be more undertanding and open minded, and when we pass a judgment openly admit to it, because when it comes down to it we all hold prejudices against people, and unconsciously I think were all a little racist and sexist and all the others, we just gotta recongnize it learn and move on to the next thing instead of getting all defensive.
I didn't mean to offend anyone with the last statement, it's just my opinion.

I think the only way equality can exist is if everyone has the same social status/ class, and have a respect for everyone of all different age, race, and gender. But a world like that is too perfect and the world will never attain a utopia. So instead, people are going to continue to try to fight inequalities and it may improve some situations, but it will also cause more conflict. Therefore, it is a never-ending cycle.
