as history has proven, social equity is not a necessary
ingredient for sustainable culture - quite the contrary, i would
say. in the place of 'equity' i would place 'justice' or
'propriety' - so that each and every one is in the proper place
according to their talents and abilities, and acknowledged as
such, by themselves and by society. and how we can possibly get
there from our current culture of ego worship, i don't know.
