    Justice is not the only value that calls for (appropriately balanced) implementation: other principles, sometimes competing with justice, must also be variously pursued and honored. And the facts help to decide the balance of due deference to competing principles: the facts constitute the feasible set that determines the optimal point on a set of fact-independent indifference curves whose axes display packages of different extents to which competing principles are implemented.
