The word equality has to be the most equivocal word in the English language. It is an abstract illusion used to define a nebulous concept. Equality has never existed in any form. This is what makes it so appealing to the left; equality doesn’t exist, therefor inequality can never be remedied. This misconception insures a limitless supply of victims, thus perpetuating the progressive socialist agenda indefinitely.
The universe is everything but equal. In nature, the strongest of a species survive to propagate the heard and pass along their genes for the benefit of the species. In the human species, man too has genetic variables; these variables determine intelligence, strength, agility, and longevity. This genetic predisposition enhances some to achieve greatness, wealth, and success beyond that of ordinary individuals.
Sure, I would like to be a movie star and earn twenty million per movie, or play pro football with all of the wealth and prestige that accompany that profession, but I do not possess the physical attributes to play pro ball, perform brain surgery, or manage a multinational company; unfortunately, this is the reality that most of us face.
The Orwellian notion, that there needs to be equality of pay and equality of wealth distributed amongst all humans is a totalitarian dream that perpetuates government largess while trampling the rights of individuals.
When Tomas Jefferson penned the words (We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal) he meant, for those of us who can read and interpret plain English, that all men have the same individual and natural rights. Which means one man’s rights don’t supersede another’s, and that groups of men have no more rights than each individual that composes that group, and no man, or groupings of men, shall infringe upon the rights of his fellow man.
As long as the government fosters this deceitful notion of equality, the longer it remains purposeful to the minions of idiots who willfully employ the state as highwaymen to rob their fellow man of his liberty, dignity and wealth.
