“Demands for greater or complete equality seem to have other sources. Boredom plays a role here as well. It is impossible, for example, to observe radical feminists without thinking that their assertions of oppression and victimization, their never-ending search for fresh grievances, are ways of giving meaning to lives that would otherwise seem sterile to them. Self pity and envy are also undoubtedly factors, as are prestige and financial support to be had from pressing their claims, but I tend to think that the search for meaning plays a prominant and perhaps predominant role in many forms of radical egalitarianism." 
 - Robert H. Bork
