Equality: Pro and Con

“I am a democrat because I believe in the fall of man. I thing most people are democrats for the opposite reason” – C.S. Lewis, Spectator, 1943.

Lewis is, as always, fresh, clear and arresting in his thinking. Here he argues why he favors equality. More interesting is when and how. And why forgetting when, how and why ultimately leads to a compelling drive away from equality.


This is not far removed from Larry Arnn’s rendering of James Madison: “It is written in the fact that we require to be governed because we are not angels. But government must be limited because angels do not govern men.”
