Demand Equality = Demand Power

Another strategy of the supposed nonplayer (for power) is to demand equality in every area of life. Everyone must be treated alike, whatever their status and strength.

But if, to avoid the taint of power, you attempt to treat everyone equally and fairly, you will confront the problem that some people do certain things better than others. Treating everyone equally means ignoring their differences, elevating the less skillful and suppressing those who excel.

Again, many of those who behave this way are actually deploying another power strategy, redistributing people’s rewards in a way that they determine.
