#730: Equality Is A Myth [WOYG Podcast]

April 4, 2018 #730: Equality Is A Myth [WOYG Podcast]

All men are created equal as babies. At that point, the similarities end — quickly.

Nike, one of the biggest companies in the world who became big by ruthlessly crushing competitors and spending a million dollars a day in media, did an “Equality” campaign recently. People ate it up, buying the T-shirts and branded sneakers. I’m a Nike fan, but the campaign was funny to me. Nike didn’t do anything wrong in becoming who they are; sports and business are competitions. So why the equality ploy?

Maybe they knew people would love and buy it, in this age of participation trophies. And I guess that’s why they’re Nike. It all makes sense, I suppose. Today though, we’ll talk the unbranded version of the equality farce.
