His morality, for sure. I'm talking about his view on justice.

he didnt mention feudalism. I said feudalists and dictators would love his morality.

I mentioned his view that some humans should be slaves, and while excellence is a trait you inherit. I dont know anything about his desserts, but what I do know is that by today's standards his morality is sh*t.

I'm not talking about his feudalism, I'm talking about when he discusses desserts.

Aristotle believed some people are naturally born to be slaves while others were naturally born with excellence. I'm sure feudalists and dictators love him.

if that is "true justice" then I'm glad social justice doesnt fit that. I would say most forms of justice are more just then aristotelian justice. maybe you want to reevaluate your definition of true justice. between those 2, social justice wins hands down.

are you not arguing for your own form of social justice?

I'm comparing it to Aristotle's version of justice

are you comparing social justice to legal justice? or to the idea of ideal justice? (which is kinda an unfair comparison in every case)

Social justice is often based on identity politics, while real justice is when a person gets what he deserves (whether good or bad).
