Freedom is Good, Equality is Evil

Contrary to conventional wisdom an AEI study shows that the standards of living for all income groups, including the poorest, have been growing over the past decade

Terry Jones of IBD and Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute talk to Allen Barton about income inequality. H/t PJMedia

Yaron Brook explains in the video the evil of equality. The trick in egalitarianism is this: 'leveling the playing field' is by definition a one way street. You can't take away from the poor what they do not have. You can only take away from the haves. In terms of capabilities: cut the limbs of Michael Jordan and hand them to..who? The principle is shown in this video. What we want is freedom, mobility.
