There is more than one meaning of EQUALITY, the one Craig was referring to is EQUAL ABILITY, which we naturally don't have. There is also EQUAL OPPORTUNITY which is what Bitcoin system, when it scales for everyone, provides, and there is also EQUALITY in a sense that there should be no MASTER/SERVANT type relationship in society. You need to understand true meaning behind all three, and understand what Craig is referring to, when he says such a thing, I know lot of people got/get triggered by such statement, but its because EQUALITY they are thinking of, is not the same Equality Craig is talking about.
Bitcoin system cannot scale if everyone is forced to have same ability and everyone needing to run a Raspberry Pi node... Blockstream use that narrative to exploit people's misunderstanding of how Bitcoin system is meant to scale, and be USEFUL to all of us, and to make people think that everyone not being "Equal", in a sense that not everyone can run a full node, is somehow making Bitcoin mining or whole system, centralised. This is one of the attack vectors Blockstream used, to manufacture social media consent against scaling of Bitcoin system the only way it can scale, by people who do have ability and will to mine and scale the blockchain, by mining bigger blocks, so forcing this idea that everyone must be with "EQUAL ABILITY" is the attack against scaling of Bitcoin itself.
So once you understand this, you should see that Craig is not some villain who wants to rule the world and be master to rest of us, or miners who are able and willing to scale the blockchain, become masters to all of us... this is just not true.
in Bitcoin system, no one is master or servant to anyone else, and this is the type of EQUALITY that Bitcoin system provides, it provides EQUAL OPPORTUNITY as well as eliminating (to some extent) the MASTER/SERVANT type inequality in monetary system.
There are other fights we need to fight for beside monetary system in order to create EQUALITY most of us wish for, but it is not the EQUAL ABILITY one... its the EQUAL OPPORTUNITY one, as well as removing MASTER/SERVANT type relationship in Economic system (system of production).
Towards the end of the video, Craig is asked about this again by the girl interviewing, and I see she didn't understand the true meaning of this either... and Craig explained these differences himself (when I was making this video, I did not see the ending of the video yet, so I did not use Craig's explanation, but my own... as I always do).
Thanks for watching, I hope you learned something new from this.

As always read is a very informative pleasure in fact I am passionate about these issues I think the most democratic that a traffic light is the bitcoin system because no, it is not centralized at all however friend also has a counter. The purchase of bitcoins and several other cryptocurrencies, which are forms of currency that exist digitally through encryption, requires large amounts of electricity. Bitcoin purchases create transactions that are recorded and processed by a group of people called miners. The miners group each Bitcoin transaction performed during a specific period of time in a block. Then blocks are added to the chain, which is the public ledger. The process of verification by the miners, who compete to decipher a computationally demanding work test in exchange for bitcoins, requires large amounts of electricity.
The Bitcoin electricity requirements have created considerable difficulties and an extensive online discussion on where to place the facilities or rings that compute the Bitcoin work test. A subject a little less discussed is the environmental impact of producing all that electricity.
I hope that the technology advances and transactions are created more safely to reduce the excessive consumption of electricity.

@todosvenezuela yes, there is energy consumption, but nothing is perfect, everything that is good, has something that is not good about it, in this case there is consumption of energy, but that is the cost of achieving decentralisation, so same how there is a cost to achieve peace in case of war, and there is massive cost in many other ways of having centralisation, this cost is worth it in my view, and as this system is used by more people, cost of energy per transactions reduces as it takes same amount of energy to produce block with 10, 100, 1000 or 10K or more transactions.
