The effects of institutions matter. But you can create social justice without giving people money, or making ‘favorable’ laws. You can instead remove a regulation that prevents them from doing something to counter-act bad actors.

We don’t talk much about health-care, but if we opened the marketplace on drugs, made most over the counter, and removed the need to see a doctor for a prescription, people could webMD 90% of their basic medical needs, and this would save huge amounts of waste, and reduce the price of drugs enormously. This would create social justice.

The rules designed to protect people are actually hurting them in an objective, real and measurable way, because people are so afraid of something bad happening, they make a law that prevents anything from happening at all.
