Promising start, impractical ending,

This review is from: Why Social Justice Matters (Paperback)
Barry does a good job in the first part of the book laying a theoretical, fact-based case for the fight against social injustice. In spite of using an arrogant, superior tone, he organizes the topic into digestible chunks including poverty and equal access to education and job opportunities. But the last half of the book disappointingly launches into a full-out, frontal assault on the underpinnings of capitalism that is ultimately totally untenable. Overall a missed opportunity to make a gentle, sensitive appeal for social justice followed by practical solutions that might actually drive action. Buy it anyway for the first half of the book.

Thats a completely absurd criticism. So you mean to say that politics is so regarded with "practical" solutions that we should simply, to translate a phrase from my country, cover the sun with one hand (be blind to reality just because we dont like how it sounds)?
