According to Clark (1994, p.77), Rawls strongly advocated for fairness in the social structure where by every individual shape his/her future. “He takes the position that at the very beginning no individual should know what the future holds or what position one will occupy in the social structure”. This one is said to be operating in a sense of darkness or as Rawls terms it a veil of ignorance. Bottom line is that individuals will have the freedom of choice when it comes to a structure in the society that looks at the interest of the disadvantaged or the less fortunate. Rawls argues that it is easier for a person who is free from any bias such as a social class to buy the idea of social justice and consequently equality in the society hence the concept of the veil of ignorance. According to this author freedom of thought and expression is the basic tenet to the development of social justice. He further observes freedom is even more important than material benefits that are advanced to both the rich and the poor in the society. Thus according to Rawls, it is better to be poor and have freedom rather than be rich without freedom.Rawls (1999, p.77-81) points out that government intervention is essential so as to ensure equitable distribution of resources especially to the economically disadvantaged. In this case, the less privileged in the society are entitled to a bigger share of the available resources than those who have abundant resources. Rawls says that this is what is just and ethical.
