Quote Them: the original firestarter

"We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against."
Fire Chief Beatty,
think Rachel Maddow but with a cigarette lighter

PS Spreading the wealth. Liberalism. Economic equality. None of it is new. This has been a sickness for generations. And in our antagonist Chief Beatty, the warped thought process took the shape of a book burner in 1951's "Fahrenheit 451" by the hand of Ray Bradbury.
