    The strong and adaptable survive. The weak and intractable perish.

      Is this related to Marx doctrine about "from each according to his ability"?

        Hahaha  Pretty...I'm asking the question! You must supply the answer....:-)

          well justice is not natural -- an action is good because God commands it --

            Pretty, Pretty...again I must repeat myself and ask again "what in the world is this god thing ya'll refer to....chronically?
            Input! Input!   :-)

      It sounds like a good definition of evolution, not justice.

        ahhh, Teresa is it possible, maybe probable, for evolution to be "justice?"....or vice versa?

          Well, a hat could be a large box of ceramic tile, if you want to say that one thing is something totally different; as prettydarkhorse says, justice is a man-made interaction.

            Teresa: nope, not to "pretty." Her "god thing" commands "judgement is mine." Ergo is his judgement also justice on a metaphysical plane?
            Catholics claim a belief in "evolution." Of course their "god thing" determines the "justice" of evolution as being its "god things" creation.
            I'm confused...lol evolution is also the result of this "god things" control of "natural selection?" Is contemporary human life this "god things" justice? If so,is his definition of "justice," evolution?...whew!   lol

        Ty Pretty...and we do live in a capitalistic world. So the def of Justice I offered is correct!
        thanks for your response.   :-)

          The definition is correct - according to you! That doesn't necessarily mean it is an absolute.

          It's a social darwinistic comment at best..

          Too general and too vague to make any real sense. Maybe if you had said
          'the greedy and sycophantic survive the weak get the crumbs or an early death' your theory would be more accurate.

          Just my opinion of course.

    there is more than one path to survival on this planet.  our anthropocentric outlook fails to understand the notion that an individual may have no place in the propagation of a species.  some living beings can live inside volcanic rifts and are almost completely shielded from the drama unfolding on this planet.  humans imagine themselves at the top of the food chain, yet are food for bacteria, viruses, molds, funguses and many other parasites.  is there justice in maggots feasting on a corpse or rats eating bodies buried under an earthquake's rubble?  divine justice, i believe, for this living organism we call Earth.
