Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - General and Theories, grade: 87, Liverpool John Moores University, course: Political Ideology, language: English, abstract: This essay presents an analysis of the highly contested concept of equality. While it will touch on the issues surrounded basic equalities, the main focus will be on the concept and achievement of political equality and the problems associated with it. The essay concludes that perhaps an absolute equality in any terms is impossible. Different forms of equality influence each other; hence achieving one form of equality may prohibit achieving another. Many inequalities still exist today in any democratic country, not to mention those inequalities of people living under non-democratic regimes. However, change is happening, as shown by the evolution of the concept of equality. And although, the achievement of political equality in practice is undermined by the socioeconomic inequalities still existing in all societies, political equality is nevertheless, an important goal, which we have to strive for.
