Justice is inescapably judgemental.
Justice is inescapably judgemental. Whether we’re arguing about financial bailouts or purple hearts, surrogate motherhood or same-sex marriage, affirmative action or military service CEO pay or the right to use a gold card, questions of justice are bound up with competing nations of honor and virtue, pride and recognition. Justice is not only about the right way to distribute things. It is also about the right way to value things. ~Harvard professor Michael J Sandel.Based on your reading of Cicero, Thoreau, and class debate on Rawls’ theory of Justice, and your own research, confirm or dismiss Michael Sandel’s observation.Note: Please refer to these articles:Marcus Tullius Cicero- The Defense of InjusticeHenry David Thoreau- Civil Disobedience.
