"If welfare and equality are to be primary aims of law, some people must necessarily possess a greater power of coercion in order to force redistribution of material goods. Political power alone should be equal among human beings; yet striving for other kinds of equality absolutely requires political inequality."

Reader comments about this quote:
Not to focus too narrowly...but isn't wealth redistribution a tool of communism? I suppose the upshot is that we end up "equally miserable and equally destitute".

    Welfare and material goods equality endeavors by political power is diametrically opposed to law. As evidence, every time it is pursued poverty, pain, despotism, tyranny, loss of inalienable rights and war results. 5 + stars for the recognition of the cause of political inequality.
