Answer 2
Answer:

Answer:

They were protesting against the Vietnam War

Explanation:

The film Forrest Gump features many US historical references, with its main character playing a decisive role in many of these moments.

There is a particular scene in which Forrest accidentally ends up on a stage amidst a protest against the Vietnam War to talk about the war. In the movie, someone pulls the cables out of their microphone and no one can hear their words. In an interview, Tom Hanks stated that Forrest pronounces the following words: "Sometimes when people go to Vietnam, they return home to their moms without any of their legs. Sometimes they do not come home at all. This is a bad thing. That's all I have to say about it. " Again, the moment Forrest has a big message, no one can hear him.

Why should all Americans have equal rights and opportunities?

Answers

People need to believe they have equal social and political rights, else there would be mass protests, revolutions and anarchy. Whether they actually exist in real life is irrelevant here, only the belief matters.

The primary difference in the social structures of humans and animals is the forced imposition of order in human society, leading to a more 'collective' society, instead of the usual 'survival of the fittest/law of the jungle' structure.  

And the concept of equal rights is necessary to achieve this imposition of order.

In my opinion, a human society following 'law of the jungle' would be unsustainable, simply because humans as a species are too weak to survive as individuals. The greatest strength of our species is our mental faculty. This leads to the sum of the parts being greater than the whole. As individuals though, we would fail to harness this strength.

Therefore, equal rights do offer us an evolutionary advantage, since they allow us to cluster together, and grow as a population, which is the only way for us to survive.
