Words Poorly Used #21 — Justice

We often confuse the outcomes of our bungled justice system with justice itself.  The procedural system that has been produced by the infinite number of self-appointed chimpanzees through their eternal tinkering with “legislation” (not law) is not concurrent with the value system referred to as justice.  In fact, it is too frequently diametrically opposite to any fundamental values of justice.  It is a system of dispensing.  All government agencies with the word justice in their title or mission statement should forthwith replace the word with “dispensing,” or some other word that connotes sweeping justice under the rug.
