Equality/Inequality/Rawls: the structure of societies is intuitively designed in such a way that people are born into different social positions and thus different expectations with regard to life are defined.
Therefore, the social institutions favor certain positions opposed to others. These are, in particular, deep inequalities which cannot be justified by appeal to merit. These inequalities, which may be the basic structure of any society, are the ones to which the principles of social justice must be applied to first and foremost.
