Freedom and enforced equality are irreconcilable opposites. Efforts to force economic and social equality serve only to restrict freedom, thought, intelligence and productive capability.
EQUALITY as a goal or dogma is a crippler and a killer.
EQUALITY is the ceiling above which one dare not rise; the mental block that holds one back from superior accomplishment.
EQUALITY is hate for your superiors and contempt for your inferiors.
EQUALITY is the yoke that binds us to the failures, degenerates and primitives of the world, and the wedge that separates us from the inspiration of the hard working, successful, and morally pure.
EQUALITY is the sociologists’ supreme value.
EQUALIGY is the source of guilt for material abundance; the excuse for oppression; the promise, which because it cannot be kept, enslaves its believers.
EQUALITY is the denial of nature, the rallying cry of the willfully blind, the source of poetic inspiration for men without dreams; the ever-gushing source of tear-stained rhetoric for hypocritical politicians who seek power.
EQUALITY is morality for the morally bankrupt.
EQUALITY is the carrot and the stick – the sociologists’ goal for all who are not sociologists; and the sociologists’ justification for the whip to punish those who dare achieve beyond sociologically prescribed limits.
EQUALITY is the narrow room where sociologists cast all the world’s people, then crank the walls closer.
EQUALITY is death of spirit, choice denied.
EQUALITY is never saying, “Look where I came from. See where I am!”
EQUALITY is waking up every day of your life with no place to go.
EQUALITY is thinking always about other people – about whether they have more than you, or you have more than they.
EQUALITY is judging everyone the same, loving everyone the same HATING everyone the same.
EQUALITY is no mountains to climb, no barriers to leap, no dreams to make real.
EQUALITY is spying on other people to be sure they have not become unequal.
EQUALITY is dragging down the ones who climb too high.
EQUALITY is taking away from those who have too much.
EQUALITY is seeing yourself no better than the most corrupt and no less than the most virtuous.
EQUALITY is wanting no more and no less than anyone on earth, achieving no more and no less than anyone; giving no more and no less than anyone; hoping no more and no less than anyone.
EQUALITY is having no more joy than anyone and as much sorrow as everyone.
EQUALITY as an ideal shuts out reason, closes doors, denies nature and reality.
EQUALITY as a demand can turn potentially kind considerate charitable people into aggressive snarling beasts.
EQUALITY as a value replaces individual virtues of love, kindness, honesty, industry, truth, freedom, morality, faith, hope and charity.
EQUALITY is a zombie, head lowered, never daring to look up, ahead, or to the side – marching at measured pace with all who deny individuality and self.
EQUALITY, if the sociologists have their way, is what we will bequeath to our children.
Politically the word ‘EQUALITY’ has worked like a voodoo charm. All a politician needs to do is shout ‘EQUALITY’ and the opposition crumbles to whatever new plan for the consolidation of sociological power is being pushed.
must we accept sociological control over medical care?
must we suffer sociological economic manipulation?
have sociologists been granted control over education?
should our possessions and hard-earned income be given away to primitives
and strangers all over the world without our consent?
should youngsters be forcibly transported to schools many miles from home
against their parents’ wishes and away from their supervision?
should academic standards be lowered for dumbed down education?
should entrants to the professions no longer be chosen on the basis of
intellectual achievement, good character and willingness to invest in
their own future?
should productive people be compelled to do more for the unproductive
than they are willing to do for themselves?

EQUALITY is the ever-handy justification for usurpation.

By now, I believe you know.
