That's a bug :-( Sorry.

"A society that puts equality — in the sense of equality of outcome —
ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom.
The use of force to achieve equality will destroy freedom,
and the force, introduced for good purposes, will end up in the hands
of people who use it to promote their own interests."
