Philosophers and the Equality of Barbarians

Ancient philosophers designated some as barbarians, opposed equal rights of barbarians, and religious zealots ( often barbarians themselves ) fought for the equality of barbarians.

Modern or progressive philosophers support the ubiquitous spread of technology, an egalitarian enterprise, as the great equalizer. But this agenda of equality is often opposed by barbarians in privileged positions of power, who want their slaves or adorers to stay in a relative servile position. The opponent of progressive philosophy wages a war on mass consumption technology -the supply line that aids the barbarian in becoming ( often a peaceful ) equal.
