Justice By

Jake Fallahi and Ben Graunke Clear vs. Unclear What is earned, or what is deserved, or what is fair

Equality vs. fairness

Equality of being just as opposed to equality Definitions Justice (jstis) (n):
Justice is fairness or the equality of being just

Justice is equity or the principle of moral rightness

Justice is the upholding of what is just, esp. fair treatment Fairness in Justice In justice, we are committed to fair and equitable treatment

Justice equals fairness

Includes rewarding those deserving, and punishing those deserving

Thus, justice includes rewarding and punishing Deciding What Is Just Only those in power can reward and punish (deciding what is just)

Includes government, bosses, teachers, parents, etc

Must think about how those in power got there

Just because one treats others fairly doesn’t mean they got there fairly Deciding What Is Just (cont) We must have rules!

Rules and laws help us decide what is just

Social interpretations and policies also affect justice

Nurses calling for medical help and reporters naming sources
