  • Formal Principle Of Justice
    823 words
    What Justice Can there be justice for all To answer this question I must first define what justice is. Justice is "the quality of being just, impartial or fair" in your dealings with others according to Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. Keeping that definition in mind, I now must turn to the Voices of Wisdom in order to find an example of a situation in which all parties feel that they are being treated justly. After examining examples such as: Euthanasia, discrimination based on sexual o...

  • Justice And Equality
    558 words
    Locke: Is This True Justice? Justice is responsible for making sure the country is taken care of and that all dangers or problems be taken care of as well. It is essential that the citizens be treated equally, and they all get the freedom to share what they think. Justice can never be served without equality and freedom involved, or problems will arise. Locke fits the idea of justice the best out of the three (Locke, Hammurabi, Machiavelli). One of the things he said was 'government exists to pr...
  • Personal Equality With People
    971 words
    Justice When the question is asked 'Can we live in a just world?' In effect it is asking us a variety of things. 'Can there be justice for all?' and 'Can the rebe equality for all people?'. The answer to this question is no. Unfortunately we live in a world where justice has never really transpired. The first justice that I would like to speak about is personal justice. Blessed are those reared in a household innocence of the deadly sin of envy. Their lives will be tormented by a grinding resent...
  • Criminal Justice System
    564 words
    The American criminal-justice system, writes Georgetown law professor David Cole, has effectively become a two-tiered system, with differing levels of regard depending on the race or class of a given citizen who comes into contact with it. The thousands of African Americans who have been confronted by law-enforcement agents nationwide for "fitting the description" of alleged perpetrators would likely agree, but, according to Cole, it isn't just the cops that operate this way; judges, prosecutors...
  • Aristotle's And Other's Views Of Distributive Justice
    709 words
    Aristotelian Ethics & Distributive Justice Concern with material equality as the central form of distributive justice is a very modern idea. Distributive justice for Aristotle and many other writers for millennia after him was a matter of distributing what each ought to get from merit or desert in some sense. The idea of equality was arguably anathema to Aristotle and most other theorists, including Catholic philosophers, until modern times, indeed until the nineteenth century. A common view was...
  • Improvements In The Current Democratic Regime
    1,870 words
    In the Republic, Plato seeks to define justice and, through definition, show that justice is intrinsically worthwhile. In doing so, Plato sets out to explain the principal concept of political justice, and from this obtain a parallel model of individual justice. Essentially, justice is defined as a result of accurate logic or reasoning. However, it is quite important to note that the democratic regime discussed in the Republic is not the same as the known democratic regime of today. The democrat...
  • Their View Of Justice
    1,294 words
    The first blow of the machete landed on the boy. "My father, they have killed me!" he cried as he ran towards him. The father then drew his own machete and "cut him down". In Achebe's novel, Things Fall Apart, this was justice. The boy was from another tribe, a payment for a misdeed, and his life was theirs to do with as they pleased. Justice is something that all of us have a notion of. However we differ in our implementation of it, we all know when it's been violated. Many of the seeds of our ...
  • Word Justice
    632 words
    In my mind justice is a very abstract concept. Although it seems like everyone knows the meaning of the word many people view justice differently. If you would ask people what they associate the word justice with, you would hear many opinions. To me it means fairness, accountability, equality, punishment, following the letter of the law, and these are the words that came to my mind on the spot, but the list sure doesn t end here. What may seem just to one person may be considered totally unjust ...
  • Guilty Of Crimes Worthy Of Capital Sentences
    1,844 words
    The figure of Lady Justice is a fixture in courtrooms around the U.S. She is blindfolded, representing justice as impartial and holding a scale, giving weight only to the evidence in a trial, not to the stature of the accused. On her right hand she carries a sword, signifying the power of those who make decisions. While Lady Justice symbolizes impartiality and strength in the American justice system, two important traits the courts should possess, justice itself is served in the courts in two ma...
