But the rub is that these should be available to all citizens: the liberty to be poor, the justice for the select and the freedom to remain disadvantaged are not what I have in mind.

How is liberty, justice and freedom related to one's financial state? I grew up very poor, but I did not lack liberty, freedom or justice. I lacked money.
