What does make us superior?  Are you so dishonest or insane as
to assert that everyone is equal?

This line of sophistry leads to the conclusion that Isaac Newton
was not superior to a microcephalous idiot.  Probably several---
nay, thousands!---of these idiots had already invented calculus
and Newtonian mechanics, only to see their achievements ignored by
the elitists.

Or perhaps you mean that although these idiots were grossly inferior to
Newton in intellect, character, personality, and knowledge, their
other assets elevated them to Newton's level---their ability to
discharge copious amounts of spittle, mucous, urine, and execrement.

And in the workplace today, the idiots should be paid the same as
the geniuses.  Superiority is a fascist lie.

All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others.
