We need to PROTECT people, but which rights and liberties should we protect?
John Rawls: a theory of justice
(1971 pg.303) (all social primary goods.......)
First principle: each person is to have an equal right to be the most extensive total system
of equal basic liberties (egright to vote, right to run for office, free speech, due process,
etc.), compatible with a similar system of liberty for all.
Prima facie a first glance, first face, on the face of it
Second principlethe different principle: social and economic inequalities are to be
arranged so that they are both: to the greatest benefit of the least advantaged, and attached
to offices and positions one to all under conditions of fair equality of opportunity.
natural goods(intelligence, creativity stuff your born with)
social goods(what you attain as you live, society distributes)
