Egalitarianism in America

Nash, George
July 1978
National Review;7/7/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 27, p832
The article analyzes the continued support for egalitarian principles by adherents in the U.S. The adherents have regularly persisted with the passion for equality of results, which is often expressed in the Marxist form. They further have support for social and collective decisions made through various political channels. In this context, the contention of American Conservative Movement Founder Willmoore Kendall is worth debating. To pursue with the debate, the article analyzes the phenomenon of principled egalitarianism.
