To build a better world we need to replace the patchwork of lucky breaks and arbitrary advantages that today determine success—the fortunate birth dates and happy accidents of history—with a society that provides opportunities for all.
It seems that some of the arbitrary advantages could be made more egalitarian but lucky breaks in history would be harder to handle since no one knows what the lucky break is until years later. I am sure all schools would like to have had computers earlier so their kids could ‘play’ on them as did Bill Gates, but alas it is not possible.
Usually for the valleys to be filled the hills must be leveled, giving all the kids equal access to computers probably would have meant Bill Gates would not have had the access he had cause it would have had to be shared with others.
