All men are created equal.<quoted text>
all people are not equal, do not have equal ability, and do not produce equal value........
if you pay a marginal employee the same as a superior employee, the superior employee will soon leave.......particularly if he/she knows that fact.....
Going forward from there, it all changes rapidly.
But the little boy in the big pants wants to pull us all backward to All Men Are Equal Forever, dammit.(except him, of course)
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."
----- Winston Churchill
