social Justice Fallacies

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. Firstly there were many subjects discussed that I had never thought about. I had never connected the cost of transport with prosperous seaports and cities. You may wonder what this has to with social justice, I won’t spoil it for you except to say that many assumptions about equal opportunities are more complex than one might at first think.
Secondly, I enjoyed the tone of the book. It was written and read (in the audible version) in a clear and non-combative way. That is not to say that the fallacies are glossed over but rather the way they are tackled is measured.
Thirdly the author speaks about unintended consequences in a way I believe is wise and long overdue. The decisions we make on these subjects are not simply intellectual or personal exercises but will have consequences for generations to come.
