Liberty and distribution: Macrojustice from social freedom
AbstractSocial freedom, the absence of forceful interference and the central social ethical principle of the modern world, does not imply full self-ownership, as it is classically believed, without a particular interpretation or problematic extra assumptions. It can in fact admit a notable redistribution, but, along with a few facts, it requires most of it to have a particular structure. This structure is “equal labour income equalization”, an equal redistribution of the incomes that the individuals endowed with different capacities can earn with the same notional “equalization labour” which represents the degree of community, redistribution, solidarity and reciprocity in the considered society.
