‘Pandemic’ Equality: All but the Ruling Class Will Be Equal Slaves

By Gary D. Barnett “There is in fact a manly and legitimate passion for equality that spurs all men to wish to be strong and esteemed.

While Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders represented in many respects the far left of the Democratic coalition, Harris was just one of several establishment Democrats in the race, and competed for ma...
