Quote –Â “Labour believesÂ that social justice means that all people should have equal access to social, economic, cultural, political, and legal spheres regardless of wealth, gender, ethnicity, or social position. Labour says that no matter the circumstances of our birth, we are each accorded equal opportunity to achieve our full potential in life. We believe in more than just equal opportunitiesâ€”we believe in equality of outcomes.”Â Â Â
Interesting. Farrar suggests that this is basically communism and it is hard not to agree.
But think about the logical extension of this belief by Labour in “equality of outcomes”
So, if I’m as ugly as hell, I guess Labour (oops…”other taxpayers”)Â –Â will pay for me to have plastic surgery so that I look like an Adonis.Â
Or how about with regards to elections…will we ever need them considering that there will now be “equality of outcomes”. There won’t be winners and losers. There will be as many Green MPs as National and Labour because of “equality of outcomes”.
It will also stand to reason that there will be as many ACT MPs as well. I bet Labour wouldn’t be so keen on that “equality of outcome”.
While I was looking up this move of Labour to the hard left communist ideal I found this wonderful video of Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell discussing this exact topic.
