Barry Schwartz's Justice Keynote Raises the Possibility of a Fair Society

This justice keynote by Barry Schwartz tackles thoughts and theories on human equity. Through the keynote Barry tries to determine what justice is and how to apply it to everyday life.

After establishing the perceived definition of what justice is in getting what you deserve and deserving what you get, Barry decides that such a thing is not possible. Instead he tries to create a better way in which to offer a fair society.

Barry's justice keynote suggests implementing systems based on luck into everyday situations. He believes too many people reach entitlement from gaining advantages in everyday life that are many times gained through luck to begin with. They are not appreciative of what they have and are unlikely to sympathize for others who are less fortunate.
