Equality and equity

Here are my thoughts on equality and equity.

Equality is the easier of the two to achieve, just give everyone the same resources with no consideration towards circumstance.

Equity on the other hand is much harder to implement. It’s harder because it’s subjective by nature. Meaning that everyone will have their own definitions on fairness and justice. Trying to achieve equity in a situation where there are two opposing opinions on what is fair and just could get messy real quick.

In an ideal society, both should be implemented in an effective manner. But I’m not here today to propose a solution on how to do that. I do not yet have the knowledge. I’m just giving you my personal definitions of both words and how I see them.

I already feel like I’m talking out of my bum. So, we’ll stop it there.
