Key point 1
To judge the justice of our society, we should look at the wealth and income of the worst-off, and see if their wealth can be increased.
Key point 2
A society of equals is not so much about the distribution of resources but the way in which we relate to one another and the many ways in which we regard one another.
Key point 3
The alternative social model of disability says that we should change the world so that more people can fit into it rather than trying to change people to fit our world.
