allocation or of distribution may be considered more egalitarian (or less inegalitarian) than another if it insures that a larger number of persons (or classes of persons) shall receive similar treatment in specified circumstances (Berlin,. Moore have attempted to demonstrate that social differentiation and social stratification are indispensable to the very existence of a social structurethat each society has functional norms, both inwardly and outwardly coercive, which prescribe the acceptable degrees and kinds of inequality to be tolerated. Berlin, Isaiah (1955-1956) 1961 Equality as an Ideal.

The latter goal might be most effectively realized by slavery or by wage incentives to higher production far greater than would be compatible with equality of welfare and even of opportunity. To claim that all men are equal in such respects can only mean that the resemblances are in some way more significant than the differences, as when Hobbes states that nature hath made men so equal, in the faculties of the body and mind that. With respect to equality of opportunity to occupy various positions, this would be another egalitarian rule of allocation. Equality of opportunity will inevitably result in inequality of condition, since some men are more able, more energetic, and more fortunate than others.
