I once heard some law students say, “This goal of social justice is so important that even if we need something like a KGB to achieve it, so be it. We’ll just have to make sure the right people run the KGB.” But there is no such thing as making sure that the right people run the KGB. People who gravitate toward KGB jobs do so for reasons of their own. Philosophers don’t get to stipulate that their reasons are noble. The same goes for any other institution. [emphasis mine]
…these students all failed, right? Right?
