Whose Justice?

justice

I have seen the majority over the minority in democracy, gender over fairness in equality, and rich over poor in social class…the clamor for justice appears to be self-interested and instrumental… with an often disregard for justice, desire seems to be motivated by our pleasure over another’s pain. Arguably, the quest for diverse equality in many ways breeds new inequalities. As I see it, the problem intrinsic to the implementation of justice is that it has the unintended consequence of creating divides, a departure from its envisioned harmony. That is, in a community of people, we are often uncertain who are the losers in Justice, and the winners in injustice. Nevertheless, Justice was never meant to be a tool intentionally focused on the individual’s interest but designed to manage and protect a well-ordered society.
