In their ideal forms I favor the second. Why you may ask? Isn't it good that everyone is equal? The problem is the first option is a lie even in its ideal form. People are not equal. Some produce things of grandness and beauty, some produce mundane but necessary things, some produce nothing at all, and some produce things of evil and horror. These things do not deserve equal recognition, acclaim, and compensation. Think of this applied to a person's love life for instance. Person A dates (at different times) three people, B,C, and D. Each of the people A dates does their best to make the relationship work and feels the need for love. Person B is very submissive which A doesn't find attractive at all. C is very controlling which A is mildly attracted to. D is self-sufficient but not controlling which A finds incredibly attractive. Under the first ideal, since all have given according to their ability, A needs to give his/her love equally to each of these people despite the fact that the only one he/she truly loves is D. But in the name of each being equal even if they are different his love must be equal. If this seems like a dumb system to you, then you prefer option 2 as well.
