Do you want to live in a world of equality?

Why don't we adopt this idea into America? Nobody would be treated better or worse, but equal, regardless of race, gender, etc. Everyone wouldn't own anything and everyone would work for the benifit of each other, thus everyone gets access to the same basic resources regardless of job or rank. I think it would be ideal! Obviously if someone fails, we can't make eevryone fail, but at least they won't get paid according to that. People will realize that we are all people and deserve the same benifits. We are all humans and not everyone is born in ideal cirumstances and cannot be successful.

Yeah its ideal. It would stiffle innovation, creativity, invention, opportunity, initiative and motivation. Sounds ideal to me, we can just be a bunch of nameless faceless automatons trudging through life accomplishing nothing, go for it.

I visited Kibbutz Hagoshrim in Israel once, that's how they work...maybe you could move there. Edit--you're serious about this nonsense aren't you? Read "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand and see if that penetrates.

There will always be individuals who are racist and sexist and will discriminate on those bases; you cannot change their minds. I hope you aren't talking about socialism because pure socialist systems do not work; history has proved that.

Okay, I'm now convinced you are a walking talking advertisment from Russia, N. Korea, or Cuba. Honey, please go invade an island somewhere and start your very own utopia and leave my freedoms alone. Thank you very much.

I would like to live in a world of equal opportunity, but not one where everyone is given the same things because it would squelch the motivation of the exceptional and above average individuals who are the ones who advance society.

So does that mean if one person fails the equal thing to do is make everyone else fail? Or if someone is murdered or naturally dies the equal thing to do is have everyone murdered or to naturally die for equality? Or if one person goes homeless the equal thing to do is for everyone to give up their homes... More

Oh yea, that's brilliant...a janitor and a doctor earn the same income, drive the same car, have the same house? Just move to Cuba where everone is equally miserable...leave the US alone, we like it the way things are just fine!

That is not equality--that is slavery--and communism. The bottom line is that everyone is denied any rights and is forced to work at what some dictator decides is "for the common good." And--as I'm sure you are well aware--the people who consider this an ideal are the ones who plan to be the ones doing the dictating... More

You should move to the USSR....oh wait, it didn't work there did it? To answer your question, NO! lazy people would not pull their weight at all. Welfare wouldn't work if there were no motivated workers.

Yes, and happy volunteers would be glad to clean out clogged sewer lines, and pick up garbage because that would be just as good as being a rock star! There is a difference between the best of all possible worlds and the best of all imaginable worlds.

No I don't want to live "in a world of equality." My neighbor's son is a 35 year old pothead liberal that lives at home with his mother and works at Quiznos. Him and I are not equal.
