we will always, always, always, FOREVER kill innocent people by mistake in the pursuit of justice
we are human beings, we are not infallible
but that fact should not stop the pursuit of justice
your choice is between:
we will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS FOREVER make horrible mistakes in the pursuit of justice
- pursuing justice, and maintaining the system as highly funtional as possible for something composed of human beings
- , altering your concept of justice, simply because you will not make peace with the essential fallibility of human beings
but that fact SHOULD NOT STOP YOU form the pursuit of justice
make peace with the fact we are human beings, not perfect gods
or does your naive idealism prevent you from the pursuit of justice?
we should do away with the death penalty because we will occasionally put an innocent to death? really?
where does altering the pursuit of justice stop then in your retreat form accepting human fallibility?
according to your logic, since the police can be corrupt and fail to be impartial, we should do away with the police too
is that justice?
well, the police can commit mistakes, no?
whatabout the idea that we FIGHT TO FIX THE SYSTEM AND GET RID OF THE BAD COPS
but according to your superior understanding of justice it's superior to FUCKING CHANGE THE NOTION OF JUSTICE ITSELF???!!!
where i come from is the fact that in this world there are ugly truths
and some like to tell themselves quiet lies, and they think that changes reality
some people have beliefs that depend upon quiet well-behaved lies in order to maintain those beliefs
but if i were to accept your request for example, that the pursuit of justice should be blunted, then all i have done is simply acceded to the wishes of your particular malformed psychology that allows you to maintain your false beliefs and relieve the cognitive dissonance in your mind because you have not yet made peace with ugly turths in this world
people like you need a loud "WAKE THE FUCK UP!" because you have glossed over some ugly truths of life with a veneer of pleasantry that allows the ugliness of the truth to disappear in your mind, but not in reality, where i am operating
i am operating on the PRIME OPERATING POINT OF THE VERY ESSENCE OF THE NOTION OF HUMAN JUSTICE
meanwhile, your concerns, perversely, has you worried MORE about the POSSIBLE innocence of mostly criminal assholes
in other words, I am not the one who is rude and loud in my beliefs as you might see me
no, instead, it is some unfortunate truths in life which are rude and loud
and those who sit in their ivory tower like you and think that ivory tower makes them protected from ugly truths while at the same time somehow also still relevant to ugly truths, well you need a wake up call
or is it you intend to shoot the messenger?
i tell you the world is ugly, that the delivery of justice and ugly, and you will not accept it, so i am to blame for adhering more to the point of justice, while you perversely swithc your concerns to the well-being of mostly criminals?
simply because you will not accept that the delivery of justice is imperfect?
make peace with the fact!
we are human beings!
WE WILL ALWAYS INCONVENIENCE THE INNOCENT IN THE PURSUIT OF THE GUILTY
WE WILL ALWAYS BE HARD AT WORK MAKING SURE THE SYSTEM INCONVENIENCES AS FEW AS POSSIBLE
MAKE PEACE WITH THAT FACT
because your perverse solution: alter the notion of justice itself to relieve your cognitive dissonance, is not a superior solution
you are in fact operating AGAINST the notion of justice
i'm down here in the mud, along with the rest of the suffering in this world, and i will not accede to the demands of those in their ivory towers of self-delusion that before i speak to them, that i also make believe, like them, that life is not a struggle, that it isn't ugly at times
life is also beautiful at times, so the onus is not on me, it is on you to admit the ugliness of life you have not admitted because you are living in an ivory tower, apart from victims of criminals in this world
your concern should be with relieving their suffering, not the suffering of the criminals
your idea and the idea of others like you of warping the notion of justice to serve their metnal comfort is bullshit
if i pierce their veil with the truth, i have won the argument, but if i submit the truth to their weak minded needs, i have lost the argument, because i have agreed with them that some truth is not ugly, when some truth in this world most definitely is ugly
if you say the pursuit of justice in this world can be quiet and well-behaved, there is no emotional weight to it, and so you have also removed the passion and urgency behind the issue as well, and therefore you have also removed your relevancy to the issue, you have removed the relevancy to the notion of justice itself
so people like you destroy the notion of justice for the sake of your mental comfort, regardless of the reality or the truth
you and people like you have to learn to make peace with ugly but unavoidable truths about reality and human nature, or basically your naivete works to do nothing but make things more unjust
you can have idealism on immovable unfortunate aspects of reality, or you can have justice, but you can't have both
i ask you not to sacrifice justice
The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.
