An inequity is the imbalance which occurs when both your internal and external worlds are not in sync. It is a bond that's shared between the two active ingredients of a narrative. Birthed the very instant both elements collide ( insert storytelling here ) or are in close proximity to each other. Think , covalent bonds.
Naturally this can be extended to all levels of conflict within the theory. I'll break it down the way I understand it.
The source of this imbalance can be from an internal perspective (MIND or PSYCHOLOGY) or an external perspective (UNIVERSE or PHYSICS). The source of the imbalance can be exclusive to either perspective (unidirectional ) or can be from a potent combination of both perspectives ( multi-directional ).
In the latter case, the internal perspective wants something from the external perspective( or participant of the narrative) that it cannot have or solve right now, and the external one wants the same from the internal perspective.
A great example is the story of the Car and the Window shopper.
A Car , just sitting in the showroom is in the external world. No inequity or imbalance.
The window shopper on his own strolling by might have nothing in mind. He is otherwise sound and without a burning desire.
Then the moment happens ( The usual inciting incident ). He see's the car and is filled with a deep longing or desire for it.
That Spark, that deep sense of longing, THE CONNECTION between Desire and Ability is the INEQUITY.
Notice that prior to that moment, it didn't exist. But the instant the two elements of that narrative collided, a bond was formed. That bond is the inequity. And it is the stuff of story when one or both of these parties wants that bond destroyed or gone at least.
This is a unidirectional type of inequity; since the guy is the one bearing the burden of the inequity alone. The car is unchanged. No desire or anything , except it's a transformer. LOL
Now in order to solve the imbalance, the MC of the story has to either grind through and try to change the opposite perspective. So say, she's in one of the INTERNAL DOMAINS (Mind or Psychology), she can attempt to change the external domain that she is experiencing the inequity with. In that case, she'll be a DO-ER.
If the case was reversed, she'll attempt to change the internal perspective (the self) and that'll make her a BE-ER.
By way of problem solving, the MC will have to solve the issue directly ( an external approach ) or will justify it away (an internal approach)
One of the two perspectives will have to change (bend) to compensate for the demands of the other. The one that bends is a CHANGED perspective by the end of the story. The one that gets it's way is the STEADFAST perspective.
An inequity is simply this imbalance. Look to problem solving between the two perspectives to re-balance things.
Now the judgement of what is good or what is bad is up to the Author and the audience's reception of that truth with regards to the exposition of presentation of the Storyform.
