No, We’re Not All the Same

William Murchison, The American Spectator

Much good has come of breaking down no-longer-relevant barriers. The prime ministership of Margaret Thatcher comes instantly to mind. But does eradication of dated distinctions argue for the eradication of “inequalities” wherever they exist, insofar as law and politics are up to the task? I wouldn’t say so for a minute. I’d say instead the reverse. It’s time for distinction-makers of every kind to come out of the closet and affirm that we’re not all the same. No democracy worth its salt should say otherwise. Alas!
