Comments: A Question for 2007: When is inequality a good thing?


mmm - thought-provoking and useful - particularly the focus on the benefits of 'inequality' - which do seem to be oft-cited as a (spurious) justification of inequity. Seems like this is a discursive tactic of sorts - which is systematically used in an attempt to silence critics and close down argument. On the Internet - yes, power-concentrations are depressing. But so is also the incredible 'digital divide' in which huge sections of the world, and great chunks of nations's populations are excluded from this and other digital resources.
