We, Latin American freedom fighters, are very proud of Mario Vargas Llosa. His wise words show why.

What is "egalitarianism" but an illusion  denying natural law (inclusive of fiscal law and the individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and the liberty thereof) and noble man's talents. Prosperity derives from all are equal before the law  NOT, a forced limitation on materialism.

You can only prosper when all are  equally respected, regarded, and all are given the same fair opportunities. Freedom to maime and kill is mentally ill freedom, and that's why we don't have equality which is a reasonable expectation. Mentally healthy have respect for life.
