What should you strive for?
- Equal spread of power among all people.
Why? Three reasons, of which the third is the most important:
- Morality: Equal power per person is fair.
- Efficiency: Equal power is the most efficient way to make use of our combined human capacities.
- Instability: Power begets power, which means that it tends to "clump" - equal spread of power is not a stable state. Thus we have to continually work towards it, rather than achieve it and then relax.
