Meta-Autonomy & Meta-Equality

I think we need to posit a meta-autonomy and meta-equality as being principles of natural law. To say "meta" here means that we do not have to adhere to traditional western constructions of the self and state - both legal fictions - but to go beyond them to what we actually value without thinking that everyone has to be the same as white non-disabled heterosexual males in order for our perspectives, our choices, our contributions and our claims and criticisms to be valid and for us to have standing in the social order.
