Alexander Berkman, What is Anarchism? pp. 164–5

By 24 décembre 2017 Inspiration

… equality does not mean an equal amount but equal opportunity … Do not make the mistake of identifying equality in liberty with the forced equality of the convict camp. True anarchist equality implies freedom, not quantity. It does not mean that every one must eat, drink, or wear the same things, do the same work, or live in the same manner. Far from it: the very reverse in fact … Individual needs and tastes differ, as appetites differ. It is equal opportunity to satisfy them that constitutes true equality … Far from levelling, such equality opens the door for the greatest possible variety of activity and development. For human character is diverse.
