Justice and injustice

“All injustices began in the name of justice.”

There are moments when injustice will show as justice.

As rumor spreads of a possible civil war in America through a demand for justice and equality(among other things),

will it be so?

Can true justice and equality thrive in a country of chaos and bipolar politics?

The streets will be filled and are with cries “no justice, no peace!”

Cries from a country that knows war and has yet to see peace,

Cries of justice from a country that funds injustice.

We know neither peace nor justice well.

I have wrestled with this thought many nights and have come to the conclusion,

social justice holds social injustice under the guise “for the common good”

but who determines what the common good is?

by whose standards?

In our current society separations

between right and left escalate

and

if one fails to agree with the collective narrative

you are unjust, there is no discussion

so,

has social justice become an excuse for state control,

for arrogance and a broad show of narcissism that all agree and conform to this supreme thought?

Are men and women that incapable of being just and holding justice without injustice at its root?

Upon the examining of my own heart

I have meet both justice and injustice.

I have stood for justice and unjustly hoped for benefit.

I have read of social plights but only those that have supported my view.

I have stood for the common good but yet have found utter corruption at the root.

Justice is not the problem nor is injustice

for both are needed

justice for those treated wrongly,

injustice for those treated favorably.

Men and women have taken a balanced system and corrupted her

eyes

ears

sight

balances

Justice itself cannot be corrupt unless men and women fill her with injustice.

I have seen more iniquity in justice and in its name than in injustice,

as I have found more moral blindness

and wickedness in something as beautiful as compassion

for there are true forms and false.

Dare I ask in our current social environment

a question to part with,

is it just to treat everyone as equals,

to treat those unequal as equal

to treat those equal as unequal?

Would we not benefit from a system that sees what is equal and unequal

and upholds both,

in society that may function equally according to their own talents?

So in closing if we were not afraid to

examine our own hearts

we would see

most injustices began with justice.

A parting thought,

If injustices prevail and dominate socially does injustice now become justice?
