The positive thesis I favor states that it does not matter that there is no unitary and separate “normative ethics” because political philosophy is always in itself already praxis-orienting and potentially interventive. Even political philosophy that takes itself to be simply descriptive and enjoins abstention from action is already intervening, because taking any position at all is intervening.

The question is: how do we finish the task of forging a real path to legal redress on behalf the million and a half Armenian victims to the Genocide and their heirs with outstanding claims against the Turkish state for a list crimes including, unlawful detainer, aggravated assault, theft, rape, murder, starvation, deportation and, yes, GENOCIDE.
