In the episode The Stolen Mask, Charles zi Britannia makes a speech about the dynamics of society. He claims,
“All men…are NOT created equal! Some are born smarter, or more beautiful, or with parents of greater status. Some, by contrast, are born weak of body or mind, or with few, if any, talents. All men are different! Yes, the very existence of man is discriminatory! That's why there is war, violence and unrest. Inequality is not evil. Equality is! What became of the EU, who claimed that all are equal? It is in constant conflict because its tenets go against human nature! The Middle Eastern Federation, which harbors similar sentiments, is constantly mired with sloths! But our Britannia is not like them! We put an end to wars and evolve with every conquest! Britannia alone looks forward and moves forward to a better future! The death of my son Clovis is yet more proof that our empire is evolving. Fight! For the future rests in the hands of its ruler! ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!!
In other words, Charles believes that the only way society can evolve is if inequality were encouraged. He suggests that equality is the reason why wars occur and go against human nature. Charles is right that equality goes against human nature, we can see that with the long history of slavery, but he seem on more dubious ground when he claims that “inequality is not evil”. Inequality is evil. In fact, one of the most evil things in the world is inequality. In the world today, inequality is much more frowned upon than it was 50 years ago, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen. Society is riddled with inequality.
What Charles says is true, not all men/women are not created equal, but doesn’t mean that the people who are less able should be left behind. Even the most disable person can be a diamond in the rough. Take for example Edward, a 36-year-old man with mental disabilities. Legally he is blind but can play the piano. How many people can claim that feat? Someone who is born less than average turns out to have extraordinary skills that not many people who claim to the average have. What others refer to as weak can actually be a very valuable commodity.
