A Just Society: What is it? How to bring it about?
The Occupy movement and Leftist intellectuals have been calling for greater justice in society. They have rallied against the "injustice" of income & wealth inequality. They are advocates for what they call "social justice." But is what they are calling for really justice? What is a just distribution of income/wealth? How is it determined? What is justice in a social system and what does it imply? These are some the issues to be addressed in this talk.
