When thinking of others means you have to think of yourself.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the twelth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Equality and equity. Two concepts that are mutually exclusive. The first assumes that everyone has equal value as a starting point. The same amount of luck in life, the same amount of territory, land to cultivate, the same amount of funds to invest, even the same amount of intellectual capital at their disposal. The first also assumes that each individual is equal to others.
As for equity, it adapts to the inequalities of nature. It assumes redistribution according to gaps. Some will even go so far as to say that this concept must redistribute someone’s abundance in comparison to others among everyone. This concept is much more complex to put in place. The first one being easier to apply in a starting line concept, the other one becomes a living concept.
In any case, a group that distributes the management of a territory to itself, not ownership, but rather the management, equality would divide the territory into equal parts. However, if someone were to receive arid or unusable land, others could receive rich or overabundant land with raw materials. For those who come into the world with advantages or disadvantages, the egalitarian system makes it difficult to narrow the value gaps.
