Episode 24

The Tyranny of Equality Politics

In this episode we continue to examine equality politics by doing some thought experiments with favorite colors and ice cream preferences.

We examine the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence to define and describe basic human "negative rights." We contrast these with the "positive rights" that statist politicians propose that ultimately result in tyranny.

Defending the equality that we share as human beings and embracing the differences with which God has made us all unique as individuals helps us prosper.

Attempting to make "equality" of outcome or possessions leads to poverty as we restrict what people have to offer in favor of the lowest common denominator.

A good model of how this works is how the Apostle Paul describes the Christian church as a body.
