Freedom is better

We crave for equality.That's the general hue and cry.The blacks wanted equality.Women want equality.The untouchables want equality.But why do they want to be equals to the ones whom they feared and hated.the ones who tyrannise them.what they should crave for is freedom.and freedom is not grounded in envy or jealousy.What's the use of an equal society which impinges on corruption?Would not a free society be better?
I believe that our desire to attain an equal status is grounded in our desire to be like others.But wouldn't that make us machines.And machines are insensitive.Would we want are society to be based on equality and insensitivity.Maybe the ones who are repressed become dominant and they start tyrannising.So whats the point in having a equal society.It becomes a utopia,and utopias can never be attained.Freedom would be a better option.Its a relative term.and most importantly the craving for freedom is devoid of any desire to be like others.Freedom is discovering yourself without any inhibitions.
