Example text

These sorts of social values include cultural harmony, social order, political stability and the rule of law. There are also a variety of non-social values that are invoked in discussions of politics. Material welfare is an obvious example, since it is clear that the isolated individual may logically enjoy that sort of good without any involvement with other people. Another example is happiness or utility, in the sense in which this is associated, as it is in the utilitarian tradition, with the balance of pleasure over pain or the absence of frustrated preferences and desires.

Personalism is the assumption that whatever is good or bad about a set of institutions is something that is good or bad for the people whom they affect. The fact that a set of institutions is allegedly in accordance with God’s will; the fact that it is the set that best preserves a certain culture or language; the fact that it is the set of institutions that puts least strain on the natural environment: these features allegedly count for nothing, except so far as they are associated with a benefit to individuals.

This libertarian assertion of Lockean rights naturally generates a different, and more distinctively historical, conception of justice in holdings from that which Rawls defends. It means that the justice of holdings will depend on who had the things in question in the first place and on how they were transferred to others (Nozick, 1974, pp. 150–3). But a traditional problem with the libertarian assertion of rights is that it may seem to rule out the moral permissibility of a state of any kind. Every state must tax and coerce, claiming a monopoly of legitimate force, and so apparently it is bound to offend against libertarian rights.
