equality

"From the fact that people are very different it follows that, if we treat them equally, the result must be inequality in their actual position and that the only way to place them in an equal position would be to treat them differently. Equality before the law, and material equality are therefore not only different, but are in conflict with each other; and we can achieve either the one or the other, but not both at the same time." - Friedrich A. Hayek

"What is now called the middle class was not and is not a class; it is a different form of society, a classessless society, the free society, the society of contract."
- Isabel Paterson

I agree that to treat everyone equal, that it is indeed a contridition.Everyone is different so it is hard to define equality.
