[dropcap font=”0″]J[/dropcap]ustice and fair treatments are crucial for every civilized world. On the contrary, injustice and unfair practices will have bad consequences. Justice is one of the most important moral and political concepts for every society.
The word justice comes from Latin jus, representing right or law. The ‘just’ person is one who typically does what is morally fair and is disposed to giving everyone his or her due. The nature of justice is fundamental for a moral virtue of character and a desirable quality of political society, as well as for ethical and social decision-making.
Practices of justice should even cover civil disobedience, punishment, equal opportunity for women, slavery, war, property rights and international relations. According to Plato, justice is a virtue establishing rational order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.
Theory of Justice by Aristotle said that justice consists in what is lawful and fair, with fairness involving equitable distributions and the correction of what is inequitable.
Therefore, justice is the most fundamental of all virtues for ordering interpersonal relations and establishing and maintain a stable political or communal society. If there is no prevalence of justice for people at any corner of the world, that society will never enjoy peace. Fairness and justice should be maintained for the betterment and prosperity of any society, as well as for the establishment of good relations with other countries.
