A look at the implications of equal rights for all. For instance, we're all said to be equal, but only some people can pollute. Who decides who is "more equal" than others, and why? Or, as another example, equality implies that if employers can search the planet for the cheapest labor, the workers should be able to move anywhere in search of the best wages. That wouldn't work any better than universal pollution, but, again, who draws the lines, where, and why?
Exploring the implications of real equal rights requires a clear view of what government does, what equality means, and of the rights themselves (Chapters 1 and 2). That has implications for every aspect of human activity: our effects on the environment (Chapter 3), sex and family life (Chapter 4), government functions like war and politics (Chapter 5) and how to keep government itself in check (Chapter 6). It implies changes in many aspects of finance and labor (Chapter 7), of social duties of care for the sick, disabled, or elderly (Chapter 8), in education (Chapter 9), and fundamental change in how so-called intellectual property is viewed (Chapter 10).
As it says in the opening sentence: "Government is about control: who gets it, how much they get, and what they can do with it."
