Shownotes

U.S. politics seem to be inundated with goals of closing "gaps" and making everyone "equal." We should understand in what ways we are supposed to be "equal" and in what ways being "unequal" expresses the unique talents and skills with which God has designed us.

We let professional sports and the Olympics teach us lessons about why diversity in gender, intellect, height, enthnicity, and other differences are something we should appreciate. Would pursuing coercive social goals of reducing "unfairness" and making us as "equal" as possible in outcomes result in crushing productivity and destroying useful talents?
