food poverty line education is also a key to eradicate poverty and sustain a bright future for the next generation. Difference Principle “Any inequality could not be detrimental to the interests of the least well off in society – the poorest of the poor, the weakest of the weak”. The inequality is too great because of where South Africans below the food poverty line are compared to Nicky because of their birth places. The 90 million Rands Tax should be distributed to the poor areas in South Africa and assist in funding disadvantaged families around the country in order to ascertain a bright future for their off springs and thus creating wealth in this order for the coming generation. The fact 1 & fact 2 portray a great difference of inequality not some of it thus making Rawls principle not to agree with the net worth on Nicky, such wealth which supposedly would motivate the poor to work harder to be rich might actually do the opposite because Nicky wealth contributing factor is from his grandfather who was the founder of Anglo America south Africa and this played a role in securing him with a high position in the company. This in turn might demoralize the people below the food poverty line as a result. The fore the tax taken Nicky should be used to aid the poor and fund educational programs and other medical supplies or food parcels to orphanages. An analysis of the inequality described using John Rawls veil of ignorance. Rawls principle of the Veil of Ignorance says that if we are to distribute stuff fairly in a society, we should not know anything about the people who benefit from this distribution, such as what religion, race, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic class from which we come; etc. in order to eliminate the inequality described, it means that the wealthy are to share/ give their wealth to those that are below the food poverty line without looking at their status or position and where they were born, this means they are to share their inheritance ignorantly so with the risk of becoming poor themselves although I doubt they would share their wealth with anyone besides them because of the effort spent to acquire it Your opinion on the inequality described and; I think that the inequality between fact 1 and fact 2 is outrageously detrimental to the poorest of the poor, for Nick oppenhiemer to have a net worth of 90 billion is highly unfair while one out of every five South Africans living below the food poverty line and it seems like nothing is being done about it because he continues to get wealthier, his children are attending high class schools and I’m sure

they will be one of the richest adults in their time as they too will inherit their fathers wealth thus making their own rich cycle while other South Africans continue to fall below the food poverty line.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
