Justice. A right denied

Updated on June 30, 2017

Consider Right to Justice.

A good number of our people have no real idea of what is meant by justice and believe that it is when the courts mete out their Brand of Punishment on or to the perceived "Miscreant" or "wrong doer" So there are many facets and or ideas on just what justice is. Before we move on we will try to enhance and enlarge on what justice is or should be.

J. The J stands for the word "justice" this in its full meaning is equal treatment, equality for all. There are no exceptions to this. We all have the God given Right to "Fair" and "Honest" just and "Non discriminating" TREATMENT. That is "Under the Law" "Before the Law' and when the "Law" is discriminatory then the "Treatment" should be "Above the Law" and in line with our "God" given Rights. We must serve the "Laws of God' And not the "Laws of Men".

U. The U stands for universal. The Inalienable rights of all people regardless of Color, Creed, or Nationality must be honored no matter our Geographical Location. Humanity, all of the members of the Human Race must be treated with equality and without any form of unjust discrimination. All forms of discrimination, this also includes Bigotry, is against God and Man.

S. Stands for service and the solidarity of all of Humanity. None of us, "Not One" has the right to lord it over any others of us. In this manner we should be serving each other and reaching out one to another with kindness and Charity. Always bear in mind that Charity is active love. Charity is the practice of LOVE. A giving a piece, from and of ourselves, for the assistance of others. We demonstrate our genuine Love and Concern.

T. Is for "Trust" we should build up the ability to "Trust" in one another and show "Fair" and an "Acceptable" concerned Treatment of and for each and every "Single One of Us". without our having any of the exceptions a mislead "Society" has placed on us. God says "you are my children" and this does mean all of us. All of us without exception. NO EXCEPTIONS ARE OR EVER WILL BE ACCEPTED.. <PERIOD> Like it or not "WE ARE, to say least OUR Sister and BROTHER'S KEEPER.". We are all responsible for each. Be Love That We May Receive Love when we get it right Love will fill the world.

I. Stands for Insurance. We have insurance by our being human of all that is our "God Given Rights" No one has the right to take away or usurp any of our "Human Rights". The "God Given" rights of all human beings are "Numerous" but there are some "Basic" ones which are or should be obvious. These "Basic"rights are being eroded each and every day by "Man's inhumanity to Man" as described by the Poet. Also our Governments are by their changing the definition and Meaning of this or that word are trying to impose their wrong decisions on the silent Majority. this because of very miniscule numbers of vocal activists. They have ignored that they have been elected to represent all citizens. They have not been elected to impose their will on the people but to represent those People. I will deal with the courts later, suffice it to say that it is my understanding that the courts are there to interpret the Law not to make Law.

C. Charity is the practice of Love or "Love in Action" We are all deserving of Love and indeed of the Full and active concern of our fellow human beings. We are indeed "Our Brothers and our Sisters Keeper". We should be "Looking out for One Another". And indeed reaching out to and from each and every single "One of Us"... Not one of us is dispensable or deserving 0f any "Form" of "Unequal" or "Discriminatory" treatment. We are all as members of "Humanity" "Brothers" and "Sisters". We are One Family and all equal. That equality does not mean that there will be no differences. There will always be differences and we must accept them and be thankful for them. Not eliminate or change them to make us all into Robotic Morons with no thoughts of our own.

E. Is for Equality and that is for equality in law with equal access to redress of less than pristine treatment. We need to have a "Society" of inclusiveness of "Unity" that recognizes our diversity but accepting of all that we are. That means accepting our differences, All of our children, must be taught to accept that all people are unique and very different. None has the right to impose their will on others. Teaching in school of subjects that are deemed immoral have to be brought to an end. Prayer should NEVER have been removed from the Public School System. A person who does not want to pray has always had the right to remove himself from the Venue during Prayer and to return After. When we banished prayer from schools then this act of Banishing Prayer started the downwards path of our society. We took away the feeling from society that we should indeed make time to pray. There are times that throughout our wakeful day during which we do have time to pray or for some form of Spiritual development. Few of us, in these times make use of those times and this is the sad state we have fallen into.

What are the basic rights God has given to humanity.

The right to life. We have been given the right to be alive and that right is slowly being taken from us beginning with "Abortion" now we Have a form of "Euthanasia" which will grow in time to justify the destruction of whole "Communities" or genocide because they do not conform to our way of thinking. When one twists words to justify one small wrong then it gets much more. progressively easier to justify greater wrongs and easier to convince greater and greater numbers that these wrongs are right and good. If one objects we can always eliminate them and bury the objectors.

We have been given a "Conscience". Conscience helps us to determine right from wrong and so we have the right to exercise our conscience. This right to practice our conscience is being taken from us. You may ask how. Take the right to have a doctor or other health professional assist in our killing ourselves or to refer us to someone who will. WE have been given the Right by God to exercise our conscience in our actions of determining right from wrong and so to act on that decision of conscience. No one has ever been given the right by God to take the Life much less have they been given the right to kill themselves. Now I can understand the desperation of some one in Chronic Pain and of those who feel alone and of no use to anyone or indeed of any value any longer in this world, But End Of Life Programs have got to be enhanced to keep those of us in this state of depression very aware that they are indeed very valuable to all of us. Treatments must be improved and enhanced. No one should ever feel they have been placed on the "Discard Pile". No One is Disposable.

WE have as we have seen the right to the best health that we can have a quality of life. This is a quality of life that allows us to tap into all venues that we choose to which includes the best of "Medical Treatment". In our present health care system there are folks who are denied the right to medical help. This is my understanding of the current state in our western nations.

WE have the Right to Housing. This right has been taken away by "Greed" from a great many of our citizens. We always justify this by our blaming the victims of this (I call it a Crime) action of the so called elite. When a country allows outside or offshore Buyers and so called investors to purchase their real estate then they are begging for problems to happen when it comes to local home buyers and seekers. Then when that country allows those so called investment homes and or houses to be left vacant while the so called investors Flip those same places to make large profits Homes for that countries citizens does become prohibitive. Prohibitive to both the renter and the local home buyer. Once again a right is denied by the actions of the greedy that has the complicity of Government in their actions. Yes, collaboration of Government. We also set ourselves up for the similar actions that are happening in the Crimea and Ukraine. Once more justice is denied as a God given right is usurped.

We have a God given right to enough to eat, this means Healthfully. not just any kind of food that fills ones stomach but health and nutritious Food. It is with dismay I have found that many of our children here in North America go to school hungry because Mum and Dad do not have enough funds to buy the Foods that those children need. If the children are Hungry You can then be doubly certain that the parents are hungry too. Another right denied to a large sector of our citizens. The Numbers, if only 0.01 of 1 percent then those numbers are 0.01 per cent way to much. No one in either Canada or the U S should be deprived of Nutritious food Here again we have another right usurped.

People also have the right to Receive a living wage for any work that they perform. Citizens of a Nation have a right to share in the wealth of the nation to which they belong. But when so called elite Members of that nation and Great National and International corporations are given free range to exploit and grasp all of that wealth we allow for conditions to develop that will increase poverty and despair within that Nation. This will continue to expand, unless it is curbed by Major controls being in place to ensure Fair and Equitable treatment in incomes and wealth of all citizens are put in place. Here in the Americas we have given up our Greatness to serve the ends of Greed. The wealthy, Big Business, and Big Corporations both National and International. This is another Injustice served.

The last one I will deal with here is, in my opinion, also a basic right and that is the right to an equal access to our court system. We in the North Americas to a very large part of our populations do not give that access. This is because of the extreme costs of entering the system and from past judgements people to a great degree believe that the court systems are geared to serve the wealthy. To serve the deep pockets of our Nations. They believe that those impartial courts are not so impartial and are in effect Partial to those with moneys to spare. Not the Poor. If you can't afford a lawyer then you are all but sunk in the court systems. this indeed is justice denied.

I believe that all of these rights have been eroded with no intention of harm by the powers that be but by the time not taken to really study the implications of the actions that we take. I pray that before the people begin the push back that there will be remedial action taken by our leading citizens first to curb and bring an end to the Greed and give access to all avenues of justice to all of our people. This will include access on an equal and equitable basis to all of our citizens. Then from there to bring just and equal sharing of the wealth of our respective Nations. Can it be done, I believe it can and that without any bloody and desperate measures. The Question is do we have the Will and The Determination to do it, to bring a better society into being. My Prayers is that this will be so. Hopefully before we have any repeat push backs of the French and Russian Revolutions.

Enslavement and Injustice are twins very much alive in this day and age. The curse of these times. Technology was intended to serve and assist People not to replace them. We all, all of humanity have the right to housing (Our own ROOF Over our Heads). The right to Food (An Entitlement to MEALS in our Stomachs). The right have clothing on our Backs (Not RAGS). We also have the right to treatment as a Human being. Good Health and access to good medicine. To large numbers of our citizens all rights are being denied by an unaffordable access to the legal systems. Compounded by High Fees of both Lawyers and of our courts. Redress is denied to a large section of our middle and Lower classes. I leave with the question "What Can Be Done To Improve Access To Justice".

The curbing of the Twins of Enslavement And Injustice Would be a Good beginning. BUT this will take a lot of Hard Work. We have to BRING Back all of the Good principles of the past and then enhance them into the Future with a policy of IMPROVEMENT. improvement of Life Quality for all.

.Justice is definitely a right denied to those in the middle to low income parts of Society.





Justice is a Birthright.

Dictionary meaning is that what is due or merited. It is an abstract principle by which right and wrong are defined. Administration of law (Though NOT all laws are either just or good). We all have an entitlement to the "God given Right to justice. Here in the west and more pertinently in the USA and Canada, indeed North America the Majority of our citizens do not have access to any Form of Justice. We are guaranteed specific Rights but those rights are being steadily taken from us though not by Law but by wealth and Politicians (THERE to serve the People) who practice self interest and not people interest. Partisan Politics of Me First. The rights of the People, of the Citizen are not considered in any meaningful way. We have developed into a "Greed Ridden" Society that has no qualms about trampling on the rights of the people and have grown into a society of grasping people. Justifying our actions by many different and to say the Least Trite Phrases.

      Thanks John. I hope I can generate some discussion and thus some interest towards building a better world I will then be

      satisfied. What I see happening in our world to-day was described well in Two Books. the first one was "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley, the other was "1984" by George Orwell. I read both of these books many years back.

      In reality no gods exist. Gods, as all forms of religion, are man made myths restricted to the domain of human imagination.

      Nothing in nature requires a god to function and no other life form shares even one of these human inventions we ourselves can't decide on to be right, among the many in existence.

      All forms of life are a product of nature, We depend on and follow the laws of nature. Man has created societies in which different rules exist based on religions and other traditions, some good, but too many which are bad.

      Justice is being administered in each of these societies by the ruling class and the establishment for the perpetuation of their interest. Even in countries with generally good laws, many have in fact highly unjust societies as a result of how laws are being served so differently on the rich, from how they are being applied to the poor.

      The US is one of the most unequal societies on the face of this earth and non of this religious talk has done much to put things right, only perpetuating false hope .

      Maybe Dr. Jill Stein would do some thing about it, if she were to become president in the US!
