The value of equality transcends Christian and Marxist ethics; but Egalitarianism wants much more: it wants equality of outcome - HERE and NOW! But here's the catch in this philosophy. Men are not equally deserving for what they are, but because they are essentially nothing. Obama's now infamous quote, "You didn't build that!" perfectly sketches this implied tenet of Egalitarianism.
