Restorative justice is discussed at length by Nozick, among others. And I mention Nozick because, methodologically, I think he has been even more influential than Rawls (esp. the method of part 2 of ASU). Also, restorative justice theory can be both ideal or nonideal. There is a sizeable contemporary literature on restorative justice. But Mills is right that it's mostly ideal theory. So maybe he's recommending that we pursue non-ideal restorative justice. However, as I tried to say in a comment at DN, the ideological worries he has in mind won't go away if we continue to do mainstream political philosophy, because of the "ethics-first" approach condemns even nonideal restorative justice theory to the risk of unexamined ideological biases.
