Vonnegut on "Equality"

Posted By Don Boudreaux On April 13, 2007 @ 10:40 am In Nanny State | Comments Disabled

My favorite of all the works of the late Kurt Vonnegut that I’ve read is his 1961 short story "Harrison Bergeron." [1]  It’s a gruesome tale of government-enforced "equality" of outcomes.
