Kitchen Table Conversation: Justice … (whose justice?) … !!


“For a word that’s used so often, its precise definition is still a topic of debate for philosophers, theologians and legislators. Justice is often used interchangeably with the word “fairness.” In any situation, be it in a courtroom, at the workplace or in line at the local bar, we want to be treated fairly. We shouldn’t be judged more harshly because of our skin color, we shouldn’t be paid any less because of our gender, and we shouldn’t have to wait longer for a drink because of what we’re wearing. We feel we deserve equal and impartial treatment … For a victim, justice may be seeing a criminal put behind bars, or it may be monetary — the goal is to make the victim feel equal again.”


Justice statue, Old Bailey



Justice … !

“WE come now to justice. A specific habit differs from a specific faculty or science, as each of the latter covers opposites, e.g. the science of health is also the science of sickness; whereas the habit of justice does not cover but is opposed to the habit of injustice. Justice itself is a term used in various senses; and the senses in which injustice is used vary correspondingly. “

Aristotle, 350 BCE.

Justice …

(For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they thoroughly wash their hands, thus observing the tradition of the elders; and they do not eat anything from the market unless they wash it; and there are also many other traditions that they observe, the washing of cups, pots, and bronze kettles) So the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, ‘Why do your disciples not live according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with defiled hands?’

Mark 7:3-5

Whose Justice?

“So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.”  Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!”

Mark 1:39-41

I have a question:

Where do I find

Unconditional  Justice ?   

Social Justice? Judicial Justice? Secular Justice?  Religious Justice?  Universal Justice? Static Justice … or … Dynamic Justice? Justice for all … or … Justice for the downtrodden? At what age does Justice apply … to which demographics … to which cultures over another … how do we define Justice  … how do we define whose Justice? 

I am very simple and

this is all very complicated.

Let me show you

not just “justice” …
