At the school board meeting the other night I heard a mother use the term equal.   I believe it was we need to make things equal for everyone.    Clearly she does not know the distinction between equal opportunity  and equal outcomes.   Equal and equality  are words that have come to repulse me like green energy,  global warming,  sustainable, etc.  These are words used by progressives to control man.  

Here are a few of my favorite quotes about equality.  

"The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal."  Aristotle 

"No advance in wealth, no softening of manners, no reform or revolution has ever brought human equality a millimeter nearer. "  George Orwell 

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."  Abraham Lincoln

"The finest opportunity ever given to the world was thrown away because the passion for equality made vain the hope for freedom." Lord Acton

"The society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither. The society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a great measure of both."- Milton Friedman
