We were talking with my cousin. She said “This thing you are talking about... Justice... There is no such thing. The stronger takes over the weak, it's like that in the animal kingdom. It's the same in humans.”
Yeah, fine. Let's go back to the laws of the jungle. It's really fine with me. Just as long as we do not pretend to have justice through laws and courts. Just like security, justice is a mirage. It's all a lie we have made up. Let's stop believing in our own lies!
I will re-quote Emile Zola again:
“As they have dared, so shall I dare. Dare to tell the truth, as I have pledged to tell it, in full, since the normal channels of justice have failed to do so. My duty is to speak out; I do not wish to be an accomplice in this travesty. My nights would otherwise be haunted by the spectre of the innocent men, women, children and the elderly, far away, suffering the most horrible of tortures for a crime they did not commit.”
Laws of the Jungle
I wrote “Let's go back to the laws of the jungle.” As if we have deviated a bit from it! But you get my point. Stop pretending justice. Accept that states are the thugs that rule us the sheeple. I'm fine. Just as long as we don't fool ourselves with any high morals and a belief that we are “civilized”. There is no advanced “civilization” in this world. There is only advanced technology and some high standards of living in some parts of the world and that is maintained through coercion, through denying people even the pursuit of happiness, through tough force to keep people from moving around the world they are born on. Full stop.
