"Morally right and fair behaviors or treatment."
It is a lie, plain and simple. "Justice" does not exist in the real world; it is only present in our minds, never carried out through actions.
Where is the justice for the people who were literally blown to nothingness when the US bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
Where is the justice for the woman raped by her father, her brother, her lover, her friend?
Where is the justice for the parents who have to bury their newborn child?
Where is the justice for the antelope killed by the lion?
Where is justice?
"TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED."
- The Hogfather, Terry Pratchett
Today I heard a sermon in which the pastor talked about a story in the Bible where a man asked God why bad things happened. The pastor basically said good Christians should not question their god and instead trust Him and his "Plan."
Why should we tolerate the bad things that people do? It is not any divine power's responsibility to help us or protect us from negative experiences, whether you are a Christian or a Pagan. It is not the Goddess's job to forever hold us up, away from harm. A child does not learn by being forever protected. Do we really want to make this world just? Do we really want mercy and peace? Then we need to step up and make these things ourselves!
Justice. It does not exist elsewhere in the world, but we humans can make it, and help it flourish.
The world is unjust and unfair because we make it so. We can make the change.
