Equality Month 2016: Parsing a Fraught Concept

A compilation of links to all the content associated with Equality Month 2016.

Equality, as the title of this post suggests, is a fraught concept. What forms of equality are morally significant? Why? Almost everyone, from totalitarian communists to anarchocapitalists, thinks some form of equality is important, but it seems like no one can agree on the details. In October, Libertarianism.org will be publishing a collection of works connected to the theme of equality. Not all of our content this month will necessarily be tied into the theme, but much of it will be—including an exciting new video series that’s unlike anything Libertarianism.org has done before. We hope that by the end of the month, readers will have a deeper understanding of equality as a concept, and how libertarians think about equality in all its forms.

This post will be updated with links to all of the content related to Equality Month 2016.
