Equality and Fairness

Since effort, diligence, results, talent, and intelligence are unequal….Equal is UNFAIR.

      Thanks Froggy. Truth is ‘fairness’ is part and parcel of that other word that prigs love so much, ‘utopia’.

      When the Constitution says we are all created equal, it doesn’t mean we’re all created the same.An interesting discussion would be: “Just what does’created equal’ mean?”

      Dave Ramsey is a Christian financial teacher. Great guy!

    I like Ramsey. Always have. Good one, tannngl !


  3. I agree. The way Progressive (a.k.a. Socialist) leaders seek to create equality is to hobble and weigh down high achievers and burden them with carrying an unfair amount of the weight of others. Or as Milton Friedman phrases it halfway through the video clip link below, “cutting down all the tall trees in the forest in order to guarantee that no tree is taller than any other.”

    Progressives simply refuse to acknowledge the evidence that such policies subsidize, and therefore psychologically reward, underachievement. Here’s a short (1.5 minute) embellishment of the same idea from Thomas Sowell (1990), and a longer (14 minute) video from Milton Friedman (1980), which I have made clickable here so as not to clutter your article with two gaudy youtube screens.

    See ya…Jeff.
