Dinesh D’Souza on Equality

“Conservatives emphasize the equality of rights, and they are quite willing to endure inequalities that are the product of differential capacity or merit. Liberals emphasize the equality of outcomes, and they tend to attribute inequality to the unequal opportunities that have been provided by society.”

— Dinesh D’Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative, “Conservatives vs. Liberals”
