ABSTRACT
The article focuses on social justice, community living and consciousness. Social justice is defined by cultural ideas. Social good involving equality and fair share are values which gives a person individual dignity and rights. Social classes are present in all societies and a person can't think of justice among social classes when he himself is a member of some class. However, class only helps a person to choose a natural area of living and serves only as a personal trait. Members feel their common fate and often sense their common class status in an ideal community. Class conscious awareness can also be seen in neighborhood problems. The standards of justice depend on one's culturally limited perceptions.
