Equal Worth: When Humanity Will Have Peace
With firsthand experience of oppression and unjust treatment, Adil E. Shamoo claims that the basis for discrimination by class, religion, or ethnic identity is the perceived lack of equal worth among human beings. This book posits three ethical principles by which the concept of equal worth can be used in a practical manner to resolve conflicts and wars. Shamoo utilizes the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Israel-Palestine to demonstrate the lack of morals in resolving these conflicts. He argues that once the principle of equal worth is adopted in foreign policy, humanity will be able to achieve peace.
