IAmKing2013Bill de Blasio, the ‘progressive’ new mayor of NYC, is calling for an end to social and economic inequality — which is interesting given the fact that it’s been the progressives (the disruptors), in recent years, who have done much to promote inequality, by saying “I am King.”

When people say “I am King” what they really mean is “I am equal to God” — which history has shown leads to new forms of oppression and injustice, and ultimately ends badly (see Trotsky).

Only when our convictions and interests are aligned with truthfulness can real progress and development happen. This is in keeping with the Spartan principle of “calling that which is just, equal; not that which is equal, just.” And in the words of Martin Luther King: “I want you to be the first in love. I want you to be first in moral excellence. I want you to be the first in generosity. If you want to be important, wonderful. If you want to be great, wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”
