    'Equality' means equality of rights/privileges, and equality of opportunity.  Those with better capabilities SHOULD do better, but everyone should start from the same starting line.

    No one is trying to achieve equality of results. We are trying to achieve equality of OPPORTUNITY. If everyone had the same opportunity, it would be up to them what they made of it.

    Equality in a democracy and in the mind of the Founding Fathers had to do with rights and not abilities.
