by Tony Spanakos

“We might hear ‘What do we want? Equality? When do we want it? Now!’ in the streets at times but, if pressed, few people making such demands want only equality. They want equality because it will make possible something else, maybe justice or liberty. So even the most avid advocate could not honestly answer the title of Eva Brann’s provocative book Is Equality an Absolute Good? in the affirmative. Equality is not an absolute good.” (01/11/23)
