As Nietzsche wrote, there are two types of morality in this world: The one of the Master and the other of the Slave.

The Master does as he wishes and what makes him happy. He takes responsibility over his life and exerts his will to live happily in everything he does. Due to this, individuals of the Master-morality are likely to live more happy and active lives. The virtues of the Master-morality are independence, strength and personal happiness.

The Slave morality is all morality in general. It revalues what the Master beholds, again, strength and independence. "Good" is not what allows the individual to live as he pleases but to sustain those who refuse or cannot live as they please. Whatever helps the weak is "good". Whatever exemplifies strength and self-responsibility is considered "selfish" and "bad".

In turn, the slave moralities of today turn weakness, inefficiency and ineptitude into virtues. Strength and excellence is frowned upon. Those who wish to excel are brought down and restricted by people stuck in a constant mode of cynicism and pessimism. "Who is going to sustain me when I can't nor want to succeed?"

Thus equality is then beholden: The idea of somebody rising up on their own with no restrictions is sickening to the man who cannot or does not want to do so. The strong must be kept down for the sake of the weak.

The question is: Are you a Slave to the whims of others or are you a Master of your own life?

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.
