THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213 th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General. – HARRISON BERGERON by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Let the State feed your children, because when everyone eats the same (terrible) food, no one is “privileged” over anyone else.
In Australia, some social justice warriors have suggested that since children perform better academically when their parents read to them at night… parents shouldn’t be allowed to read to their children at night, because it makes some children “privileged” over others.
The State alone should be in charge of educating children, because the State will assure that everyone gets the same (terrible) education, and no one is “privileged” over anyone else.
There is also an unconfirmed report of a community college Composition Instructor who refuses to grade based on proper grammar and punctuation. Proper English is “privilege,’ you see, and no one should have the privilege of being able to communicate in English better than anyone else.
As the deranged social left taked over more and more institutions, what was once outrageous satire is increasingly becoming reality.
