Simple math tells us that if A is greater than B, and B is greater than C, then A is greater than C.
One could use foods as the variables: if pizza is greater than pot pie, which is greater than cabbage, then always order carry-out before making kimchi.
Or sports teams. [Note: the Detroit Lions are always...always...the C in this equation.]
This math does not, however, apply to people.
I am not greater than you, and we are not greater than them, and they are not greater than us.
We are all...equal.
The simplest math of all.
