“Distributive justice” is a concept that has been handed down for over 7,000 years. It’s roots come from the Jewish Torah and extend to the Christian theologies of today. It is the reasoning behind the taxation and redistribution of wealth in this, and many other countries. This type of justice demands that the fortunate share with their less fortunate brothers and sisters.
Unfortunately, this ideology has been warped and twisted by those who are confused by it’s meaning. Instead of having a meaningful approach to distributive justice, men and women are being fed their daily fish with no means of learning to fish for themselves. This is NOT distributive justice, it is economic slavery.
