I would like to focus more on the distributional injustice side mentioned in this course as I think the injustice of the environment is mainly caused by the injustice of social economic and power distribution.
In terms of uneven distribution of power and economics, it would lead to the incidents such as the sea otter case, the fisheries case and the water pollution case as a result of some of the most relevant stakeholders don’t have the power and social status to get enough public attention and fight for their own rights. It is more like a systematic problem rather than only defining it as discrimination. Taking the water pollution video as an example, what if the black communities and the indigenous communities become richer and have more social power? Will the same tragedy happen? How could make these communities become more powerful socially?
Consequently, I believe that on one hand, a new distribution pattern is required in the society to consider more about the stakeholders and the communities that have not much social power. On the other hand, reform in education, in government officer selection might also need to be carried out to make the less-development regions become richer and have louder voice for themselves, economically and politically. Therefore, their perspectives could be heard and considered to improve social justice.
