  1. We need to distinguish between an inequality of consumption, an inequality of ownership and an inequality of power.

    This is my favourite paragraph.

    “The Magnificat, the song of Mary, is so revolutionary that I am surprised McCarthy didn’t ban it as unAmerican. The British, under the East India Company, before 1857 in India certainly did ban the Magnificat from being sung at Evensong. You do not want the subordinated natives getting ideas about the hungry being fed, the poor lifted up and the rich and powerful overthrown and sent away empty. “
