Equality and Libery

Matt Yglesias writes:
Indeed, it’s been generally acknowledged by everyone from Robert Nozick to John Rawls that achieving this kind of robust form of equality of opportunity would be incompatible with any kind of recognizable form of liberty.

Ugh. Why do so many people misunderstand Plato?
