I would think before that discussion could take place, we would have to come to an agreement on what "in the sense some would have us believe" really means. Taken out of the context of the novel, we don't really know who the speaker meant. By "some" did he mean the average person?
And if so, what does "all men are created equal" mean to the average person? What does it mean to you?
