The Dark Side of Human Equality

Dalrymple writes again (there is always a need for it) on the foolishness of inequality as a criterion. As regards health…

…those who are fixated on such equity are often at a loss to give any reason why the poor should be treated when ill other than it would be inequitable not to treat them. On their principles, indeed, it would be illogical to save the drowning child of rich parents because to do so would be to increase inequity. Equity would be increased if he drowned.

Hey, don’t give them any ideas.
