    先看看equal當名詞時的解釋:someone who is as important, intelligent etc as you are, or who has the same rights and opportunities as you do (Longman Dictionary)所以equals指的是在社會中享有各種權利、較有優勢的一群!相對於equals, unequals自然就是指相較下分配權利較少、較弱勢的那一群了(雖然現在unequal已經多不當名詞用了)!準此,dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike的意思就是:將某種形式的平等(公平地)分配給權利的既有者與缺乏者!

    民主....這看來是一種討人喜歡的、沒人統治而又多采多姿的政體。這種政體不加區別地把一種平等給予所有的人,不管他們是不是真的平等.

    柏拉圖 (理想國)

    這裏應該是...dispense sth to sb....就是把什麼分配給誰的句型

    dispensing (a sort of equality) to (equals and unequals alike. )
