Ahead of the next Cafe on Tuesday October 18th at The Gate, we thought you might like to try this poll.
It seems that, alongside the right to vote, the right to private property is almost universally accepted as the basis of a democratic society. Yet in all such societies, economic inequality appears to be a feature. Are such inequalities
- unfair features of societies whose economic life is centred on the private ownership of goods,
- or simply the fair outcome of many individual choices and actions, for which individuals are ultimately responsible?
Vote below on whether or not you think private property necessarily leads to injustice. Comments, reflections (or criticisms of the poll question!) can all be added beneath this post, and the latest results will be displayed after you vote.
