Los límites de la igualdad de oportunidades

Abstract : In recent decades, "equality of opportunities" has been imposing itself over the other vision of equality in the social democratic matrix, which the author terms "equality of positions". In this sense, those who defend equality of opportunities - the model of liberalism of the us - are less preoccupied with reducing inequality than fighting against discrimination which impedes transiting the social structure in function of personal merits. The article maintains that the Left must combine equality of positions with equality of opportunities, but giving priority to the former, something that must not be confused with a conservative defense of the Welfare State as we know it today.
