Equality of Outcome

Postby TreeGuy » Jan 21st, 2018, 1:24 pm

Equality of outcome, equality of condition, or equality of results is a political concept which is central to some political ideologies and is used regularly in political discourse, often in contrast to the term equality of opportunity.[2] It describes a state in which people have approximately the same material wealth and income, or in which the general economic conditions of their lives are alike. Achieving equal results generally entails reducing or eliminating material inequalities between individuals or households in a society and usually involves a transfer of income or wealth from wealthier to poorer individuals, or adopting other measures to promote equality of condition.

Why does the thumbnail use a picture of Justin Trudeau crying?

Are they trying to present him as a weak, over-emotional figure?

If so, why would they do that?

It's interesting hearing Shapiro prattle on about biology, genders and science. It would appear that he is unaware that biologically the human body has more than 2 sexes, even if the vast majority of people are covered by 2 and that sexuality is not a purely biological concept. Even biologists accept that human sexuality is far more complex than the simple binary view, as do developmental psychologists, etc. and I have no doubt that Shapiro is well aware of this, but that he would rather deny the science and pretend that science is on his side. He did that within the first minute and completely threw away any credibility he had in so doing.
He then goes on to claim that BDS is anti-Semitism, and while there are large cases of overlap, those who engage in BDS are not by definition anti-Semites (even if many turn out to actually be so).
Honestly, he should try to stick to well sourced, uncontroversial concepts if he is going to claim things as facts with such certainty. Instead he presents hypothesis and controversial topics as fact and goes from there. It's really hard to take him or his acolytes seriously. Also, you should look at the kinds of followers he attracts by reading the Youtube comments:
White men built Western Civilization, and everyone else is trying to destroy it.

We are a nation in distress. Please send President Trump.

Well Trudeau is a Marxist agent acting on behalf of the UN and the Communists what do you expect. You really get what you vote for.

Canadians! It's time you rise up and embrace patriotism and nationalism and fight for our dear western values and judeo-christian culture. The enemy is the totalitarian political ideology called islam.
