Distributive Justice Across the Generations. In Chapter 3 of your textbook, the author discusses how demographic differences, such as age, influence understandings of distributive justice. He also reviews how libertarian, utilitarian, and egalitarian theories of distributive justice enter into conversations across demographic divides. The soaring cost of health care, the limitations of the economy in paying for health care, and the growing proportion of the population who are over age 65, have given rise to serious discussion, at times acrimonious, about the possible need to or the justice of rationing health care to that age group. A common definition of rationing is withholding some specific medical treatments for reasons other than a patient’s desire to have the treatment (e.g., Medicare not paying for certain treatments for very elderly patients). In your discussion, you must, from the perspective of distributive justice, summarize the major arguments on both sides (the pros and cons) of the issue of whether health care should be rationed to the elderly. You must also characterize these arguments according to whether they are

Moral, Legal, and Religious Perspectives on Social Justice. In Chapter 1 of your textbook, justice is analyzed from three perspectives, each with its own set of relevant concepts. The text includes three case studies for consideration from each perspective. Select one (only one) of these case studies as the focus of your initial post in this discussion. Then analyze the selected case study from the justice perspective which accompanies it and answer the following questions.
a. If you select “Case Study 1.1 – Jacob Little and Walmart,” analyze it from the perspective of justice as a moral concept. Your analysis must address the following questions:
§ Did Walmart offer Jacob a just wage? Why or why not?
§ Was the alderman’s decision to let Walmart operate in the city just? Why or why not?
§ If you were the alderman, what would you do to more fully promote justice in the situation? Why?
b. If you select “Case Study 1.2 – Just Desserts?,” analyze it from the perspective of justice as a legal concept.
§ Was the court’s sentence for Mr. Allen just? Why or why not?
§ Was the court’s sentence for Mr. Brown just? Why or why not?
§ If you were the judge presiding over both of these trials, what would you do to more fully promote justice in them? Why?
c. If you select “Case Study 1.3 – Honor the Sabbath or Keep Your Job,” analyze it from the perspective of justice as a religious concept.
§ Did Chief Gerst treat Corporal Brown justly? Why or why not?
§ Did Corporal Brown act justly after his agreement with Chief Gerst? Why or why not?
§ If you were the Chief of TSU’s Police department, what would you do to more fully promote justice in the situation? Why?
The Justice of Climate Change. In Chapter 1 of your textbook, the author identifies the possible causes and consequences of global warming/climate change as emerging issues loaded with implications for justice. He also analyzes the concepts of distributive justice, commutative justice, and retributive justice and suggests their relevance to conversations about how individuals, businesses, and nations should respond justly to evidence of global warming. These conversations are made more difficult by acrimonious debates about the quality of the scientific evidence that supports global warming hypotheses as well as the motives and integrity of various scientists on both sides of the issue. “Case Study 1.4 – Getting Warmer?” illustrates this problem.
Familiarize yourself with the debate highlighted in Case Study 1.4 by reviewing the required resources for this discussion. Then apply concepts of distributive justice, commutative justice, and retributive justice to answer the following questions.
a. How should the concept of distributive justice influence the response of the United States to evidence of global warming? Why?

Commutative Justice and the National Debt. In Chapter 4 of the text, the author examines commutative justice across the generations (see Section 4.5). This idea arises from the writings of British political thinker Edmund Burke (1790):
“Society is indeed a contract… a partnership in all art, a particular in every virtue, and in all perfection. As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born…”
(Reflections on the French Revolution, para. 165)
Burke’s idea of a social contract between generations is often cited in contemporary debates about the spiraling nation debt of the United States. What do young and old citizens living today owe, as a matter of commutative justice, to generations of citizens who are not yet born? Is it just for today’s citizens to demand policies (e.g., low taxes and high levels of government service) that create huge debts for future generations to pay?

Sociology – General Sociology
Justice from Four Perspectives: Family, Community, State, and Nation. In Chapter 2, the author urges students to “look at justice through the lens of reason” by developing “frameworks that permit careful analysis and evaluation of competing views” (Dreisbach, 2013, Section 2.1). He provides an example of such a framework by analyzing how the concept of justice varies when viewed from the different perspectives of family, community, state, and nation. In this discussion, you will apply this framework to analyze justice issues arising from demands for the legalization of a traditionally prohibited behavior in the United States – same-sex marriage. Before responding, carefully read the discussion question below:
According to the revised 2010 Census, in the United States there were 131,729 same-sex married couple households and 514,735 same-sex unmarried partner households. As of December 2012:
a. Thirty-eight states have state constitutional provisions or other laws restricting marriage to one man and one woman;
b. Nine states and the District of Columbia issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples;
c. One state recognizes marriages by same-sex couples legally entered into in another jurisdiction;
d. Eight states provide the equivalent of state-level spousal rights to same-sex couples (civil unions) within the state; and
e. Two states provide some state-level spousal rights to same-sex couples within the state (e.g., domestic partnerships, designated beneficiaries).
Consequently, in at least 30 states same-sex couples are denied the many legal and economic benefits that are available to married heterosexual couples. Additionally, in 1996 Congress enacted and President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which:
a. Defines marriage, for the purpose of receiving federal legal and economic benefits, as the legal union of one man and one woman; and
b. Permits a state not to recognize a marriage legally entered in another state between persons of the same sex.
Analyze both the distributive and commutative justice of this complex situation from each of these different perspectives:
a. A same-sex couple who was legally married in one state but whose private s
