A true just society is where everyone has the opportunity to be successful in life and what they make of that opportunity themselves is up to them. And that we are all held accountable of the decisions that we make, our success’s and failures. Liberals believe in equality of opportunity where everyone has a good shoot at being successful in life and again what we do with those opportunities to be successful if up to us. And that we are held accountable for what we do with the opportunities that are presented for us in life. Which is different from what Socialists or SocialDemocrats believe, which is about equality of result that we are all entitled to the same benefits that come with life. Where we would all have the same income and so-forth, where there wouldn’t be any rich people or middle people or poor people.
