Under democratic capitalism, inequalities of wealth and power are not considered evil in themselves. They are in tun with natural inequalities which everyone experiences every day. Nature itself has made human beings equal in dignity before God and one another. But it has not made them equal to one another in talent, personal energy, luck, motivation, and practical abilities. On the other hand, inequalities of every sort are potential sources of evil and abuse.
Michael Novak, The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism, 84.
