However It’s Packaged: ‘Equality Of RESULTS’ Is Not The American Way

Written by William Pauwels on March 18, 2021

After thinking about Pres. Biden’s Inauguration Speech, which emphasized EQUALITY – and after observing his actions during the first month of his administration – I’ve come to realize how wrong “EQUALITY OF RESULTS” is for the betterment of our citizenry. 
 
Historically, America has been based on “EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY,” which has provided Americans with the highest standard of living in human history.  Equality of Opportunity is spelled out in America’s founding documents.  And America has been striving to enhance the opportunities for all of our citizens, certainly during the last hundred years or more.  It’s not been perfect, but it’s been more effective than any other political/economic system.
 
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stressed the importance of Equality of Opportunity, de facto, in his “I’ve Got a Dream” speech.  He stressed that humans should be judged by the quality of their character – not by the color of their skin.  Amen!  I think the vast majority of Americans agree with that principle!
 
Unfortunately, the BLM (Black Lives Matter Movement) and similar quasi-Leftist movements like “Antifa” – including our new President – have latched onto the Equality of Results objective as a unifying political philosophy.  It used to be called Communism – but now the NEW-Democrats are hiding it under the name of “Progressivism.”  Frankly, I suspect many citizens do not recognize it as a form of Communism and/or do not fully appreciate why Communism is such a great evil. (Note: Almost all Communist countries have failed, and have abandoned that ideology in favor of a Free Enterprise System.)
 
If you think about it, you will find yourself amazed that the American people have voted a man into office who is cherishing a quasi-Communist-like philosophy. I suspect he would deny it – but facts are facts – and Equality of Results (OUTCOMES) is a Marxist/Leninist/Leftist political/economic philosophy of the first-order.  And that’s what President Biden advocated in front of the entire world during his Inaugural speech – and he’s followed through with over 50 presidential orders to that effect.
