 Comment 2 : “Advocates of social leveling studiously avoid this obvious fact because it invalidates their unstated assumption that outcomes of all sorts would be equal in the absence of discrimination”

 Evokes the story/movie Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut and of course my favorite book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. If people were provided for at an equal level, would motivation to have more and be the best still exist? Or would complacency and mediocrity run rampant?
