Example text

Once the principle governing relations between natural and positive law has been specified, this principle may provide the basis for an account of the specific substantive implications of the principles of natural law. In particular, this principle may ground an account of the form of social welfare legislation necessary to realize a rightful social condition. Yet an important strand of Kant's account of right suggests that the set of positive laws embodying the principles of natural law may not include social welfare legislation.

The problem here is not that a duty requires the adoption of an end, while political authority can only coerce external acts. As Rosen argues, while the sovereign cannot 28 KANT AND WELFARE coerce members of civil society to adopt the end of beneficence, the sovereign may have ‘its own duty of benevolence’ (191). Since the duty is binding on the sovereign, the sovereign, alone, need adopt the end. Any legislation adopted in connection with this end need only coerce actions consistent with this end.

Equality as a subject does, however, require that ‘every member of the commonwealth must be entitled to reach any degree of rank which a subject can earn through his talent, his industry and his good fortune’ (TP 75). Unless individuals are able to pursue their interests free from asymmetric coercion, this condition will not be satisfied. Under this interpretation, Kant's claims (MJ 326) can be understood as consistent with his metaphysical account of right. The sovereign has ‘taken over’ the duty of the people to act from the postulate of public right, which requires interventions to preserve the rightful condition of civil society perpetually.
