About Justice

Ernesto-Guevara-006If you tremble with indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine.”  ― Ernesto Guevara

“It is usolzhenitsynnthinkable in the twentieth century to fail to distinguish between what constitutes an abominable atrocity that must be prosecuted and what constitutes that “past” which “ought not to be stirred up.”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.” ~Malcolm X757bfc2f

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  … Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.  …Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.  … The moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice.  … The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood. ” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The simplest way of understanding justice is giving people what they deserve. This idea goes back to Aristotle. The real difficulty begins with figuring out who deserves what and why.”
~Michael Sandel


“It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.”
~James A. Baldwin


“It is better to risk saving a guilty person
than to condemn an innocent one.”

― Voltaire

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to Frederick-Douglassoppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

― Frederick Douglass

“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” ― Anais_Nin_FINALAnaïs Nin

Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.

Justice is a human issue, and I do not need a god to teach it to me.
