in Inequality, Reality Is Not Optional, Seen and Unseen

… is this November 18th, 2019, Facebook post by Bob Higgs:

The obsession with equality — not equality under the law, not equality of human dignity, but equality of income, wealth, esteem, social standing, and countless other things that cannot possibly be equalized — is a demonic force in the modern world.

DBx: And this obsession is loved by power-mad monsters. What could better serve their purposes than to be given power to achieve outcomes that are practically unmeasurable and in principle open-ended and, thus, unachievable? Easily finding evidence that reality remains short of the heavenly ideal, power-mad monsters demand yet more power to right the alleged wrong. There is no limit to the amount of power that will be demanded when an obsession with these sorts of “equality” reins.
