Myers’ The Politics of Equality makes one of the most thoughtful, simply-written and learned attempt to resuscitate an anxiety of the political theory considered rebutted by events, socialism, communism, related theories and social democracy of the social equality. Perhaps it is a period for such an endeavor. No essential political theory rests refused for a long time and not by actions. Myers contributions to the revitalization of the social-egalitarian model in three conducts:
- by creating a strong situation for the appeal of the perfect such as a community of identical freedom;
- by portentous reasonable revenues to the tactic that epitome;
- possibly most essential, by outlining how diminutive the actions of the latter hundred years count beside either the model or the way he suggests. It is a story that must invigorate a conversation deceased for a long period as better for classrooms as for the circulation between thinking classes (Jason Myers, 2010).
