I've stayed out of this mainly because its an ideological debate that is exactly that, ideological. There is what is and what would be best. It is contrary to our nature however to were we can never have things be their best.

What is....
Humans are greedy, regardless of where you live. We all want as much as we can get, many times at the expense of others. We want to have nice things, even when that means others must suffer so we can have them. We want to be able to enjoy our lifes with entertainment and leisure, even when we know others are being worked to death so we can afford it. You need only look at the failures of communism to see that equality can not be achieved. Even looking at the accepted practice in China with population limits. They would rather have fewer people, than have to change their ways for others.

Would you be willing to give your car? The only transportation being buses to get people to work and your own 2 feet for person travel. Personal travel is wasteful of resources.

Would you be willing to work 12 hours a day in a coal mine, while your next door neighbor works 8 hours a day doing data entry? You would both have the exact same material things, lifestyle, education, and health care. But you would have to sacrifice and do your part for the greater good of the whole.

Would you be willing to never have your own house, and live only in an apartment? An apartment that is the exact same as everyone elses. Anything more is wasteful, and again a waste of resources that could better help someone else.

Would you be willing to work your entire life, knowing that no matter what you do, you'll have the exact same things as the next guy. No more, no less. You would be forever stuck in the upper lower class. Have what you need to survive and thats it.

Anyone who says everythign should be equal is a hypocrit. Right now your sitting behind a computer you dont need, with an internet connection you dont need, and playing a game that is unneeded. You have those things because someone else is being *used* so that you can have them. Wouldnt all that wasted energy, resources, and money spent be better if it went to someone in a third world country to improve their life?
