Ashton Gray's "Created Equal: The Greatest Lie" destroys forever a vicious and downright deadly lie that has nearly choked the life out of philosophy, culture, education, politics, and wisdom around the world for over 300 years: the Lockean lunacy that all men are "equal and independent." Gray launches a merciless, relentless, full-scale assault on absurd fixed ideas that are practically worshipped in the not-so-hallowed halls of academia. Some of his opening few lines express it best:
The heavens have yet to reveal two equal stars. Every planet in the cosmos is different from every other planet. No rock or boulder ever is equal to any other. No two grains of sand match exactly.
Go into a field or lawn and pick a blade of grass; you hold in your hands a unique creation that has no equal anywhere in the world, or in the universe. The very fact that it is in your hands sets it apart, but even before you picked it, it occupied its own space. It pointed in its own direction. It had its own length, veining, coloring, texture, thickness, weight, roots, and arrangement of unique cells that formed the whole, every detail setting it significantly, dramatically apart from every other blade of grass that exists, that ever has existed, or that ever will exist.
From the cosmic to the microscopic, from the macrocosm to the microcosm, from stellar magnitudes down to molecular level and beyond, there is one message that this universe—however it got here—seems relentlessly intent on dictating, displaying, proving, over and over, infinitely: “There shall be no thing equal to any other.”
Yet one of the most universal, pervasive, and inescapable beliefs in the world today is that “all men are created equal.”
It is in the schools.
It is in the marketplace.
It is in the workplace.
It is in the neighborhood.
It is in the statehouse.
It belongs in the madhouse.
It is a meaningless myth.
It is the greatest lie.
This work is destined to be one of the most controversial and revolutionary books of the modern age. One reader of the manuscript said: "This has freed me from intellectual chains I never even knew I had, but that I have worn through every minute of my life from the day I was born."
