There’s been a lot of talk about Justice lately. From dear friends seeking Justice over the debasers and fools whom are directly responsible for the ills of the world, or at least Just power & means to correct the matter once and for all. And what about a Government declaring that Justice was served in the death of man. Or the citizens of Syria or Libya wanting a Just and free society from their Leaders which exercise Justice in a swift and sure manor.

In all the rhetoric about Justice, I wondered if anyone, Citizen, Subject, or State, understands what the word Justice really means? And if you really knew the meaning, would you honestly want to seek Justice on another?

The concept for Justice comes from Roman Law or Jus, meaning to have, "Power, Privilege, or Capacity (of control) over another Person…."
Think about this for a moment, the Power over another person’s life; their person, property, or family. How would you exercise such power?

Would you conjure Jus abutendi or the right to exercise power in any manner you see fit? Having your way through unrestricted and limitless force. Even with the noblest of intentions, could you wield such power and not declare jus dicere - "I AM the hand of God!" - That you are correct to exact power and dominion over those whom you declare beyond the pale. Isn't that called Retribution?

Or would you strive for Jus naturale, or to exercise power in positive governess in A communi observantia non est recendendum from the common rules for all, there shall be no departure.
Not seeking your way only, but acting for all to benefit. Striving for others to follow Jus ex injuria non oritur, if they seek to change an ill or want in unity; for good cannot rise out of doing harm . And, unselfishly, allowing for the possibility of losing today even with the noblest of intentions, so that all will gain tomorrow. So that you, in the end, become self-enlightened.

Which do you choose?
