That’s an incredible quote, thank you.
I completely understand, and to be honest I couldn’t agree more. :D
Often times Justice is believed to be without true definition. Bad things happen to good people every single day, people who are considerably innocent, children, families, loved ones, injustice happens to everyone and the people who are truly willing to stand against it are few. In a world of Injustice how does one rise above it when it surrounds you, when every day it tries to drag you down? I suppose I don’t mean justice in the literal sense, such as revenge or redemption, but as more then that. What about Justice as an ideal? Is giving a moment of happiness to a sad little girl’s life not as just as punishing a man who steals to survive? Is it not possible to suggest Justice can something more then what someone deserves? Although a random puppy and a scene from the Little Mermaid might not mean much to most people, to others those could create happy moments in a person’s world where being happy rarely happens. I put some thought in your sort of cults ideals in regards to Doctor Who and Supernatural (Supernatural is actually a really good show, so you all win there.) and I realized that such a thing could be more then just what it appears to be for most. It’s more then a way to socialize or belong, it’s a form justice for a group of people who wouldn’t get it any other way. It’s an escape from an unjust world that maybe some people don’t feel like they belong in, and I believe that could be applied to a lot of different things. A memory, experience, concept; If Justice isn’t just what makes you happy, but if it’s making you happy when you need it the most then isn’t it conceivable that such a thing is justice? Can you not find a sort of Justice by just doing good deeds, or must you only find it only in doing good deeds for good people? Should a true form of justice discriminate against people who don’t deserve it? I realize I’m not exactly addressing what you mentioned or even brought up, but really. If justice is only for those who deserve it instead of a sort of virtue or rather broadened ideology, how is it truly justice at all? It’s biased based on who you believe deserves what treatment. We are all separate but equal, and should we not stress that equality to come to a greater form of justice? Is Justice no more then redemption or punishment? Or could you find that justice is anything, physical or ideological. Instead of it being a factual process, i.e someone being punished for something, or someone being rewarded for something, why not make it a philosophy? People surviving in a world that is full of injustice won’t always be just themselves, but does that mean they should be condemned because of it? In cases where people have killed someone who killed one of their loved one is that just, or is it just more murder? I’m sorry for the rant, but yesterday got me thinking about what is justice, and I thought this was a good time for my to write down my thoughts. Today I’ve come to realize that perhaps it’s not as black and white as I once thought it was, that Justice can be found in almost anything for anyone. A person can grow up in a world of injustice, be degraded, beaten, used, betrayed, disregarded, ignored, then still come out of it alive, loving, and with a feeling of responsibility to help others. I can’t tell you how incredible I find that. Perhaps that person might deserve to hate the world, to hate people, but instead they choose to do otherwise. To help others where they were not helped themselves. Is that person not doing Justice? I’ll end my rant here, but ahh… Thanks for the ahh.. question xD
I often wonder if people consider the outcome of their actions, or even if they have any consideration at all for anyone but themselves. Either way, I hope the swift hand of justice gives these people a bitch smacking before I have to.
