If we pull justice out of a purely prudential hat, we do a neat trick.

Here's what happens: anything with prudence--i.e., anything at least sorta agent-y--acts justly. Insofar as they don't, they don't act with prudence. Insofar as they don't act with prudence, they're not the kind of thing whose actions we need to defer to. We are free to intercede.

It's wonderful! Insofar as we need it, we have it; insofar as we lack it, we are free to intervene. And we haven't uttered a single premise about what these agent-y things are! That's the upshot; so it's not like we should throwaway the notion so quickly.
