The point is to use the quest for equality to justify penalizing anyone who rises above "equal," thus ensuring that all favors get handed out by the state or its ideological fanatic supporters.
This resembles... Communism? National Socialism? Totalitarianism?
People will not let you criticize the Emperor (democracy, multiculturalism, welfare, consumerism) because to do so is to suggest that all of us are wasting our time on a civilization that is heading toward collapse.
#GamerGate, #metalgate and many other scandals show us that anything related to inequality, whether racial or sexual or sexual preference, causes government and media to immediately explode and go after you, as will lots of Useful Idiots (UIs... sorry, SJWs) out there who want to crucify you.

Solution: standardize the web, with Wikipedia, Google Knol, etc. and squeeze out those smaller websites so they stop mucking up the corporate profits.
When the sheep get warm and comfy enough, yank anyone who doesn't dish out for SSL, and make it so that it costs a thousand dollars a year to reasonably publish on the web, instead of the pennies it did a few years ago.
Then, you have total dominion and total control. For much profit!

Pleasing the unwashed masses is not my task. Yes, that means you, with the mod points.
This is great. The Crowd has the greatest pretense of all human things, and turning up your nose at it debunks its assumption of moral superiority.
A debugged program is one for which you have not yet found the conditions that make it fail. -- Jerry Ogdin
