Fairness and Justice

If you read the scriptures of any religion, I am positive that there will be something to this effect – ‘See Me in yourself, See Me in Everyone’. In layman’s terms, this translates to being Fair and Just to everyone. Don’t go by how one looks, talks, etc but have an open mind. This basic creed that God proposed is best institutionalized in the American declaration of Independence – ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness‘. In pursuit of these rights, it is evident that a system of fairness and justice prevails. Granted this is not yet perfect and has taken more than 200 years to reach the state that it is at today. Even 50 years back, a black man had to fight for his people against oppression, right? Today, people are looked asunder because of their preferences, whatever they are, whether religious, sexual, etc. Until mankind can look at everyone as Him, there will always be politics, there will always be injustice, there will always be crime. If you think America is not yet perfected, think about the other countries of the world – the underdeveloped or even developing countries such as India, China. Think of the unimaginable human rights violations that are transpiring there every day. Just last week, a women was gang-raped just because some young men thought they will teach her and her boyfriend a lesson for daring to be out after dark with him. How many people are being abused because someone has power? How many are abusing their power themselves – in doing good for themselves and ignoring their duties? Being unfair and being corrupt and one and the same. Being corrupt in neglecting the growth of others while helping themselves is one of the worst possible crimes a human being can conduct. Wish there was a swift measure that God could mete out for such instances and mankind would have been more careful the paths he would have tread – be it how he treat others or how he treats himself.
