Week 2-Strict Egalitarianism

The "Distributive Justice" article lists the two main problems of Strict Egalitarianism as how to measure distribution and a time frame for distribution. It does not mention how materials are chosen for distribution. Even if society exists on an equal level, ultimately, I think, power of distribution must be given to a selected segment of society. Those in power have the ability to control the goods before a level of measurement or time frame has been established. Does simply having the power of distribution leave a gap in equality, even if goods and services are equal, or is equality still enforced by the materials individuals possess?
