On Egalitarianism

"The ambition of the egalitarian theory is all-encompassing; its target is not merely art, science, and education, but values as such, in any realm. Those who succeed in the pursuit of a value are to see the products of their action, spiritual and material, "spread around" to the non-succeeders, because they are non-succeeders. Value achievement leads a man to loss; non-achievement leads him to gain." ~ Leonard Peikoff
