Privilege

From Counter Arguments.

According to the theory of Privilege, everybody is born into different circumstances, and those circumstances make certain outcomes in life more likely relative to those born into different circumstances. Circumstances that render a higher likelihood of a fulfilling life are what’s labeled ‘Privileges.’

The Argument: This is a theory, nevertheless, a fair observation. Certain characteristics make certain outcomes more likely. However, many of the characteristics labeled ‘Privileges’ are conditional and many of them can be earned (if not already inherited). This is an abstract argument and should not be used to justify an assumption about individuals.
