Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-2000- How Liberty Creates Inequality and Why that’s Good and was originally published on May 9th, 2017.
The following are the original show notes from that episode..
There is a fallacy out there masquerading as a universal truth, and that is that our goal in society should be equality for all. That inequality should be eliminated, period. Politically many people have many different views on how that should be done, however the average person would agree that inequality is a bad thing, and should be eliminated.
The truth though is while the definition of inequality has been changed by the politically correct you can’t ignore the root of the word. It is formed from two parts,
In this case the prefix “in” indicates a negative, as in the word “not”.
The component equality comes from the word equal as in each part, person, etc, get the same thing.
In other words inequality means “not equal”. So some get more than others, some get less.
What we have done is made inequality the same as or equal to injustice, which means a lack of fairness or justice or simply “not just”.
These two things are not the same thing.
If you think I am splitting hairs tune in today because this is a critical thing to understand when discussing liberty with others.
