“The liberal vision of justice”

“The liberal vision of justice seeks to allow and protect a wide spectrum of diversity and plurality of opinion. Given the enormous diversity of interests and desires of people throughout the world, the dangers of promoting one vision of the ‘good’ can be seen in the numerous historical examples of the totalitarian states that have been set up to enforce a belief system such as Marxism; the repression of alternative values naturally leads to conflict.”
