Imagine that you have been given a piece of sovereign land upon which to build a just society. In a 3-4-page paper, discuss the following:
Identify and explain your definition of justice.
Identify and discuss the social philosophy/philosophies that are similar to your own vision of justice. For example, you might draw upon Rawls’ idea that justice is fairness and original position and discuss how reflecting upon the original position influenced the structure of your new society. Alternatively, you might explain intersectionality and discuss how your society will ensure that discrimination on the basis of identities like race, class, gender, and sexuality will not occur.
Identify and discuss a contrasting theory.
