It used to be that socialism, particularly of the more strident Marxist brand, was always harping on about equality. Equality in those days, we were always assured, was equality of opportunity. Obviously that was rather unconvincing the more left you move in politics, since communism was overtly about equality of outcome. Regardless of your interests, capability and effort, you were not supposed to achieve anything, in any sphere, that benefitted just you. If you work hard, you work hard for everyone, including those who prefer to rely on your hard work.
Still, it was equality — of a sort. When you investigate even the call for equality of outcome, it is clear that is not really what it is about.
Politicians who stand up and demand equality, even for people supposedly in groups labelled ‘advantaged’, are increasingly harrangued by feminists and ‘social justice’ ‘warriors’. These decriers of equality want to implement a society in your nation on a model that is a proven disaster. History shows us that it will kill millions if they manage it. And they are doing well so far because most people are too little interested in human rights, or in human wrongs.
