Want to build a just society? John Rawls said to start by ignoring your identity | Aeon Videos

What would it take to build a more just society? In contemporary debates about justice, identity is frequently front and centre, but the 20th-century American philosopher John Rawls thought that looking past identity was the key to more equality. In his 1971 book A Theory of Justice, Rawls argued that if we could build a society from behind a ‘veil of ignorance’ that kept us from knowing anything about our identity, we would make choices for the greater good, providing justice for all.
