History matters and we matter because men make history. We encounter history as we are born and we cannot control it because we are created in it. History is the result of decisions that people made before, therefore social inequality is the result of history and the result of the decisions that people made before us. simplication of a historical phenomenon used for the purpose learning, problem solving and understanding. it is an analytical tool and a logical construct. it is simplications so we can better understand phenomenon"s (example) democracy. Limiting must be systematic and enduring. (example) if i go to class, and i am not welcome because i am wearing an orange shirt is not an example of social inequality. Although when applying to university, and the qualifications is good grades and must not wear orange and it becomes systematic and applied to everyone then it can become a case of social inequality.
