"It is interesting that Rawls relies most on the fair equality of opportunity and political liberty arguments to vindicate property-owning democracy over welfare state capitalism, considerations he thinks demonstrate that welfare state capitalism is unjust and so not an ideal regime type. It’s clear that Rawls does not believe that difference principle based arguments alone can vindicate property-owning democracy." (12/12/12)
