Justice Essay, Research Paper

The concept of justness is a subjective reality. Justice is not present in any

one person, justice appears to be present only in consensus. There is no just,

justice, only the presence of action and consequence for persons in a consensus

regarding their concept of justice. Justice is only just to those who have

conformed to their idea of justice and have helped to create it. Those who are

effected by the justice that is placed around them and do not agree with it are

being treated unfairly. For those people there is no justice. Without total

consensus defining justice there is no justice. If there is a justice without

conformity it is not just, and therefore is not manifested as justice, but as a

form of government. If we put aside religion, deities, and God centered

ideologies, we can find no true justness. Justice is a reflection of justness.

Without the existence of justness there will never be true justice. What we call

justice, should be called consensus and conformity to laws and mores. When we

move to this point, we find that we are actually discussing government. For

there will never be true justice, only our conformed moral sense of what is

acceptable and unacceptable. This once again leads us to many forms of

government. If we discuss justice in the sense of divine intervention and

religious beliefs then justice has a whole new meaning. Justice now becomes the

writings and beliefs of a conformed religion. Catholicism for example, follows

the teachings of the Ten Commandments, and the word of God that is written in

the Bible. Although the ideas and philosophical thinking in these writings have

extremely righteous and moral views they can only go as far as to teach you how

to live morally. ?Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you.? Some

believe the Golden Rule is the only true justice, according to Jesus, justice

was not eye for an eye. ? Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do

good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and

persecute you.? These were some of the morals that people believed to be

justice. What if perhaps there was no God, or deities of any kind, then all of

this is boils down to morality. Even then, what defines morality? We cannot

define morality as justice for it has no clearly objective ground on which to

define it. Even as an individual we cannot find justice. If each of us were

alone in the woods, and away from all forms of conformed justice, justice would

not be present. For we must conform to the laws of nature. One may believe that

it is unjust that he/she has to collect food before winter, and therefore he/she

decides to rest instead of saving food. As a consequence, over the winter he or

she will starve, because they did not conform to the highest form of natural

government, which is nature. Nature moves according to its own laws which people

may experience as unjust.. He who searches for justice will only find millions

of forms of government, his search will be everlasting until he realizes that

the only justice he will ever know is his own subjective belief of what is

just.. Even then, who are we to define our own justice?
