Nozick It’s hard to argue that in every case in every society people will be made better off by having more opportunities even if every fish is fished and all the land is gone It seems that there’s so much injustice that the theorum of restisomething wil require us to just start over Many people find the consequences of liberatarianism to be rather harsh- the state has no obligation to help people who are sick/ in need o -why would you expect people in this istuation to continue to accept the laws of the state even if it’s extrermemly bad for them? In response to these problems: o A theory like rholls and nozicks are good if we start out as adults but perhaps we should provide for children to develop into full reationtal adults who’ve had basic healthcare food etc o consenting adults should be able to sell their skills even if all the land is taken up, but in order to develip into a moral agent you must be given certain goods- o we do have to provide for children but we don’t have to provide for adults
