Tension Between:
FOMENTING OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS and ADVOCATING EQUALITY WITH OTHERS

Opportunity
 

Primary obligation to others: foment opportunities for them to create and pursue their own destinies. Equality is understood in terms of opportunity. Generosity is conceived in terms of the creation of possibilities.

 

 

Equality
 

Primary obligation to others: distribute goods and services more equally through society. Opportunity is secondary to reality. Generosity conceived in terms of tangible reality.
