  •  "Fair" is a core liberal concept... (2+ / 0-)

    It has been analyzed and made precise by liberal political philosophers, primarily in recent years through the work of John Rawls. We relinquish this concept at our own peril. This diary is well meaning but deeply misguided in philosophical fundamentals. The diarist needs to read some political philosophy and do some research on what has been said about the concept of fairness before unilaterally relinquishing it as "squishy."

    Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
