On democracy

"Democracy does not guarantee equality of conditions - it only guarantees equality of opportunity."

Still thinking about that one! Good 'conditions' (however you define them) mean that if everyone has equal opportunity, then those with good conditions have a head start. Doesn't it? Or, to put it in opposite terms, poor conditions would mean a more than equal opportunity to give everyone equal opportunity.

If you see what I mean.
