    Those on the left dont have the nerve to come out and say it, but its a tenet of leftism. Make everyone "equal" by cutting down anyone who does better.

    Next week we will hear that walking is unfair because there are those that can not.

    Sorry, I am a liberal and you are 100% wrong about me...and most liberals I know.

    Er, it appears you've been seriously misled....happens when people are eager to believe anything as long as it conforms to their own beliefs.

    Uhm, what do you think? Is "unfairly" advantaging their children something parents should even concern themselves with or feel bad about? According to the article, it is.
    It is certainty a highly intellectual sort of sadism that only few could enjoy. But now that it's out, everyone will be reading to their children. And so the invisible hand will again tear down a barrier protecting the elite

    Our society often acts quite the opposite and disadvantages success redistributing its higher return.

    You act like I just pulled this out of thin air. Who is the side always crying about differences in outcome? Who is always whining about the "gap widening"?
    Who is always talking about "fairness" instead of meritocracy?

    Now-YOU may not feel that way, but the left is all about that.
