Chapter 61 – There Can Be No Freedom Without Justice

And there can be no justice without freedom.

What is Justice? Fairness in protection of rights and punishment of wrongs. While all legal systems aim to uphold this ideal through fair and proper administration of the law of the land, it is possible to have unjust laws.

The Free Dictionary describes justice as : 1) fairness. 2) moral rightness. 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all. Example: the adage “justice delayed is justice denied,” applies to the burdensome procedures, lack of sufficient courts, clogging the system with meritless cases, and the use of the courts to settle matters which could be resolved by negotiation. The imbalance between court privileges obtained by attorneys for the wealthy and for the person of modest means, the use of delay and “blizzards” of unnecessary paper by large law firms, and judges who fail to cut through the underbrush of procedure all erode justice.

Conceptually this word “justice” is easy to describe, but it alludes us.
We believe we live in a country and within a judicial system that will aid us in our pursuit of
justice,but the truth is the game is stacked and many are exploited in the pursuit. In all
probability justice is not worth pursuing, but there are few other acceptable choices other than
its pursuit. Look what our attorneys have destroyed. They are the exploiters. We are the
exploited.
