Rabbi Lapin: How far should we go to create an 'equal' society?

Lifestyle

Do you really believe that all children born ought to have equal opportunities for successful lives?  Really? And how far exactly do you want the government to go in order to guarantee this?

In this week's episode, Rabbi Daniel Lapin asked some compelling questions about "equality" and our perception of a fair society:

  • Should we guarantee the child of a drug-addicted homeless woman the same shot at success as a homeschooled child from a caring, intact family?
  • Should parents be able to bequeath their assets to their children, or is the death tax a moral attempt to provide all children the same shot at success?
  • Does a religious upbringing confer an unfair advantage on some children?
  • Why isn’t it just a little immoral to care so much more about one’s own children than about all the other children in society?
  • Why was Russia the first country to recognize the new State of Israel in May 1948?
  • Is it wrong for prestigious universities to provide priority admission to children of alumni?
