1 Summary of Politics 1020E Lecture 11: The Distribution of Property, Part One (October 13, 2011) The eleventh lecture begins with a general discussion of citizenship and multiculturalism and then introduces the topic of justice in the distribution of property. Five main subjects are covered: (1) the ideas of citizenship and multiculturalism, (2) some thoughts of Karl Marx on money and property, (3) the relation between property and some important values: utility, rights, equality, and freedom, (4) the theme of inequality, and (5) John Locke’s arguments for private property rights. (We’ll complete our discussion of Locke in the next lecture.) Citizenship is a central idea in contemporary societies. In T.H. Marshall’s approach, all citizens share a common set of civil, political, and social rights and duties. The class of citizens has expanded over the past few centuries to include working people, women, non- Protestants, and blacks.
