My thoughts on equality

Whenever "equality" is pursued as an idea, those qualities which make people unequal are denigrated. Under such a regime, those who possess those qualities necessarily are "worse" than those people who don't have those qualities, thus creating a ranking system. It is an inverted ranking system, to be sure, but it is still a ranking system.

The only way that I can think of to actually create equality is to abolish ranking systems, the "transvaluation of values," but again, this would make the people with ranking systems worse than people without them, thus creating another ranking system.

Respect for individual rights, disbelief in established norms regarding rank and privilege, democracy, and all sorts of other ideas commonly associated with egalitarianism are tenable, but egalitarianism itself is not.

The real purpose of elections is to make the people hate each other more than they hate their government.
