Rawls, “The Law of Peoples”
Rawls argues for a set of moral rules binding on all nations based on his contention that in the original position, all states (including well-ordered hierarchical states) would agree to the set of rules laid out on p. 46 of his article. Carefully explain Rawls’ argument in two pages. Does Rawls’ argument successfully establish that these rules are binding on all states? Defend your answer carefully and in detail in the remaining three pages of your paper.
