Magic Words

The last round of budget cuts at my school was explained to us as necessary to achieve equity. The administrators who imposed these cuts are left-wing. Thirty years ago, they’d vote Republican and tell us the budget cuts are necessary because of free markets.

The magic words that keep us weak and unable to resist have changed from “freedom” to “equity.” But the substance is the same. We have less so that some filthy rich Pritzker can have even more.

    1. I really like the links you post. I always find something new in them.

      And it’s absolutely true. “Equity” is a fancy way of saying “I’m going to rob you blind while pretending to be mega virtuous.”
