Veil of ignorance

(Additional reading on this topic can be found in Chapter 22 with Rawls’ “Two Principles of Justice” page 1126).

What does a just society look like? What do we need in order to have justice? Do the biases/experiences discussed in the video really impact us (i.e. someone born into a very wealthy family vs. someone born into a family with little to no financial security, someone born ‘healthy’ vs. someone born with many health issues, etc.)?  Will we ever have a society built around Rawlsian justice? Why or why not?
