Ahh.. the classical Philosophical question.. what is justice? Please try to make this a real debate, no silly posts or anything. What is justice and who does it apply to? I beleive there will never be such thing as "true" justice. Each person has their own beleifs, world view, and morals. Since "Justice" generally is brought up because of interactions between more than one person, we have to set a standard. Each society seems to have it's own standards, with it's similarities and differences. So in this sense, there can not really be a good definition of the word and it's concept. It's been forever since I've read Plato's Republic so I can't remember all the details, but someone defined justice as getting what you are owed. But in a counter from (Socrates I beleive) it was argued: If you owe a freind a sword, and he comes to you with clear intention of killing someone with it - how is that justice? A death will result in someone getting what they are owed. That brings up a good question; is death and killing unjust, no matter what the manner is? There were also two more definitions of justice provided, but I'll be damned if I can remember them. But they were wrong, and someone else's opinion, so it doesn't matter. What do you beleive justice is? And what needs to be be done to have that, if it does? I'm gonna see if I can dig up a copy of the book .. I dunno, I'm trying to study harder this semester after a .87 GPA so I'm thinking to much... Getting to smart..
