Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Antony Flew shows that Social Justice (the principle that justice is some "distribution" of income and wealth supposedly to the advantage of the poor) is both incompatible (radically incompatible) with justice (as to each their own) and deeply harmful.

Justice is not some kind parent dividing a cake into "fair shares" for the children. Justice is respecting (not violating) the property of others.
