  •  I just threw up a little: (0+ / 0-)

    Has Dkos turned into Redstate? Now the core liberal concept of fairness is "vapid sloganeering"? Everyone needs to take a time out and read some political philosophy:

    Seriously, this is like a nightmare. I realize that not everyone is into philosophy, but it is really terrifying to see that the work of the most renowned American liberal political philosopher, which is summed up by the slogan "justice is fairness", has had so little impact that a diary trashing the concept of fairness is rec listed.

    Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
