228. Justice? We have already killed over one million human beings
and we call that justice too.

Where is the justice for them, and what do you think THEY, innocent as they were, having nothing at all, especially the tens of thousands of children we've killed and tortured, to do with OUR problems.

And where is the justice for the innocents who were tortured and held for years without trial? When they try to get some justice in our courts, every time our courts rule against them.

I don't think we can speak much about justice. The celebrations are for the feeling that we got revenge, retaliation and so the cycle of violence will continue and there will be more injustice, on all sides.

From Martin Luther King who was probably nothing more than a dreamer with a lot more faith in human nature than I have right now:

Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.


So long since his death and we are nowhere near that kind of evolvement, if anything watching the acceptance of torture as a policy and extra-judicial assassinations and no attempt to hold public trials for those we accuse, I think we are further away than ever from what he dreamed of.
