“There is no virtue as truly and godlike as justice”
If justice delayed is justice denied then injustice is capable of doing more harm than what it’ll meet the eye.Injustice itself is nothing less than a seed of evil that if neglected will spread roots in the society and erode it slowly.
“And let not hatred of any people seduce you that deal not justly.Deal justly that is necessary to your duty”
Injustice is not just the judge making a wrong decision. Denying someone what they deserve is also injustice to them. If you let someone got exploited and turn on blind eye to it, you are actually letting the wrong doers go free and allowing them to do what they want. If the evil is not ripped in bud, it’ll grow.
Every evil was once nothing than ignorance. We think that it’s just one time but once injustice even if it’s as small as letting the worker get less wage than he was promised, will set off a chain and slowly everywhere the landowners and employees will start exploiting the weak and poor.
Injustice how small it is has to be stopped. Past is filled with examples how elite class injustices were ignored and it let to downfall of whole kingdoms. Letting injustice prevail makes society’s soul hollow, vulnerable to destruction.
What stronger breastplate than a heart untainted!
Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just,
And he but naked, though locked up in steel,
Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.
(William Shakespeare Henry VI)
