    Re: Social justice

    Imagine a society in which 1% contributes to making the society better and 99% get most of the benefits. Then imagine a society in which 99% contribute to making a better society and only 1% gets most of the benefits. Social Justice is finding the optimum, socially fair balance between those two extremes.

    Merely justice. Anyone seeing anything else has been drinking some koolaid, IMHO.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yes. I think THIS may draw your attention.

    Social justice means everyone is equally which translates to equally poor.

    OK, how about Hayek's "The Mirage of Social Justice"?

    Hayek is a psudo-economist, not anyone to be taken seriously, especially on philosohpical or theological issues such as this.

    huh. Well that's unfortunate. I was looking forward to actually discussing this with you, as I think you are on to something, but it turns out that you are as quick to turn into an ad hominem hackattack as anyone else.

    zero points for failing to address the point raised.

    no. There is no more "justice" in social justice than there was in the original injustice that created the issue. You do not justly raise some up by trodding on others.
