  •  Leveling (1+ / 0-)

    I'm not so sure that having "leveling" as a goal is all that bad. There are at least two ways that leveling (I believe) should and does manifest itself in progressive politic thinking: (1) people who are wealthier should bear proportionally more of the burden, for example via progressive taxation; and (2) people who are poorer should receive more of the benefits, through social services, but perhaps the most important example is through support of a "level" educational system.

    Maybe I'm on the fringe, though.
