Thoughts on Zoroastrianism, Taoism, and Equality

Was doing some research on Zoroastrianism and Taoism recently, then had an “epiphany” around what they teach us about the trouble with equality struggles in today’s day and age.

Essentially, Zoroastrianism looks at duality as a constant battle between good and evil. While Taoism looks at dualism as something to be accepted, acknowledged, and harmonized.

“A balance of forces does not necessarily mean equal quantities.”

This can seem somewhat paradoxical, but not if you study or meditate on the simple symbol of the yin-yang.

What are you thoughts on the modern fight for equality in today’s day and age? Do you believe in equal opportunity, equal outcomes, or something else entirely?
