This is the reason why Rawls referred to the original position also as the “veil of ignorance”. Furthermore, from this idea of original position, Rawls developed the idea of “justice as fairness”. According to the author it is fair to decide the meaning of justice in the original position where men are ignorant, therefore they are not influenced by their proper envy. No one is jealous of the other, no one tries to steal other men’s properties for his own seek or the one of the whole society. Rawls’ aim was to not violate human rights, and with his theory, the violation of human rights is not possible due to the existence of the original position and the veil of ignorance.
At all, the mafiosi refers themselves as businessman to conceal their hideous and violent acts from the general people around them. They tend to use euphemisms like “family business” and “an offer he can’t refuse” while speaking among themselves.

Liberty is also used and viewed as the same category of theory, and has the definition “The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s behavior or political views” (Liberty). If you compare the two you can see that even though they aren’t the same, in the context of theory, it gets the same meaning, as being free from oppression imposed by authority, is liberty, having liberty is being free from oppression, and therefor, throughout the paper, the world will be used as having the same meaning as different theorist use different words. John Stuart Mill is a “British philosopher, economist, moral and political theorist, and administrator, was the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century” (Wilson). He’s known Another person is Philip Petit, who argues for republican freedom, which is different from libertarian freedom that Mill argues for. While Mill focuses freedom on individually and state, Petit argues that pure freedom is not being controlled by anything.
Often, it is the third parties who are affected the most. The innocent employees who may not have even the slightest hint of crime being committed are made to suffer.

2.3 A Panoramic View: John Stuart Mill’s Defence of Liberty John Stuart Mill makes a very necessary and significant distinction in the opening lines of his book On Liberty. He spells out legibly the theme of his essay as he indicates: “The subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual.” By this statement, we could stipulate explicitly, yet briefly that, J.S. Mill’s theory of liberty has little to do with the so called argument between determinism and free will. Its focus is largely directed towards the political cum
This suggests that when the victim is unknown or there is no interaction with the actual corporation, the attitudes towards committing the crime is more positive (Heath, 2008). As well, many of the people involved will turn the situation around and make themselves out to be the victim to manipulate certain ridicule if they are caught (Heath, 2008). In condemning the condemners, the legitimacy of law or policy those being charged under is called into question, while the most common response as to justifying the reason corporate crimes happen, involves appealing to higher loyalties like family, or for the best intentions of the corporation (Heath, 2008).

Kant simply implies that a universal moral law that can be only exist in kind of formula determining if an action is moral or not. He named the formula Categorical Imperative which can be basically defined as “Always act so that you can will the rule of your action to be a universal law.” It is ‘categorical’ because it is not ‘hypothetical’ or ‘contingent’ on anything, but is always and everywhere ‘universal’. Because it is called an ‘imperative’
The main arguments against it include making the market unfair to those outside of the firm, the potential for many investors to leave the market based on their perceived disadvantage, and the rightful duty to punish all those involved with scamming others. Although reasonable, these arguments are not necessarily correct. Insider trading actually benefits the economy as a whole by making stock prices more in equilibrium to their true value, it helps minimize potential losses to individual investors who want to buy, and the immense amount of resources is not worth trying to prove something that cannot fully be enforced. Maybe there should be some type of balance between legal and illegal insider trading. By making it completely legal, enforcing insiders to report or disclose that they are insiders may help the unfair and negative connotation insider trading is associated with.
Four, corruption advances the presence of an underground/illegal economy. The likelihood of bribes penetrating the security frameworks has made it simple for underground economies in fake, adulterated and substandard items, particularly drugs (Petrevska, Petrevska, & Ristić, 2014). In spite of the fact that these underground economies are worth billions of dollars, the administration does not profit by duties nor are the individuals profiting from the risky impacts of tainted medications.
