In reality - yes, that was how it ended up, just like in societies with great degrees of freedom you still don't have total equality - but I think we're talking more on the theoretical then how it ended up really working in the human societies. The thing is - if everyone is repressed the same, then within that group they are equal.Not everyone has been repressed. Certain qualities in people have always gotten them special treatment. Whether it was good or bad.But it's true - and we're really speaking theoretically. If we start looking at actual societies, we'll few if any, with real liberty or equality, just varying degrees. Political ideologies often sound great on paper but fail the test of human implimentation. People don't act like they're supposed to.Some of the most repressive communist societies have an enforced "equality" but very little liberty.
I think that everyone equally being suppressed isn't very fair lol. Especially since it wasn't ACTUALLY equality. Much like those totalitarians claimed communism when all they were were socialist dictators.
If everyone is equally repressed - there is equality. It's not a good thing, but it's still equality.
