America's pledge of allegiance promises "liberty and justice" for all. But what if the two were in conflict?
The vast majority of pronouncements on U.S. policy focus on such things as "democracy" and "freedom" or "liberty". "Justice" is less popular as part of catchphrase, unless it's "we will bring the evil-doers to justice", or similar.
However, on the left, there is a preoccupation with "social justice", meaning that they want to take stuff from the rich and give it to the poor (cf.: Robin Hood). Economic redistribution through taxes, in other words.
But justice doesn't just entail "social justice".
So, which one is more important overall? Liberty or justice?
Thanks in advance.
