Countries, cultures, and even some religions have not always believed that all people are of equal value. In fact, it was only within the last 100 years where humanity witnessed the worst atrocities – the killing of millions of people in concentration camps, simply because it was believed they were inferior.

This of course resulted from the departure of the ancient belief that all people are made equal. However, when and how did this social teaching become mainstream? Where was its origin into our common history? Watch and learn from Greg Sheridan.
