A very quick lesson, a thought exercise only, with doling out money the question would be "whose money?" but as an example:
If you were to give 1000 people a $1 million each, thus making them equal in wealth, 24hrs later the differences would be appearing, some would 'invest' in a drug spree, others might take a vacation or gamble it, some might invest, buy a home, build a business, take some education, use it as equity to borrow a larger sum.
A year later the differences between top and bottom would be vast. They would no longer be equal.
So in order to keep them equal you would need to assign how each person spent their money, they would no longer be free to make their own decisions. How much they spent on their own health care, their own education, their own retirement fund, their own charitable interests, their own family. Their wealth would no longer be theirs with you controlling it.
Advocates of a free society know that some people are going to mess up their life, it's no utopian fantasy, and we don't see that flippant accusation thrown about by the likes of KN and marauder so much these days.
But if we're talking equal rights. i.e. the equal right of all to live free from force, threats of force and fraud then we're talking equality and liberty. Given your record here as a busybody and control freak it is unlikely this is what you meant by 'liberty'.
