Steve Antler over at Econopundit posted a nifty little "sermon" (as he calls it) on Sunday about social justice as a good. I like his analysis, and it makes me feel better about myself as well!
Here's the idea. We can't avoid wanting more than we can afford, because that's part of our biological makeup. This means we can't avoid wanting more social justice than we can afford, because social justice is a good and we always want more goods than we can afford.Interesting, but it obviously doesn't negate the importance of limiting ourselves to the optimal amount of affordable social justice, and no more.
