We’re what’s wrong with jus­tice

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & .COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir:

The jus­tice sys­tem is in­dica­tive of the en­tire state of af­fairs of this coun­try. It is in­dica­tive of US; it speaks to our ac­tion and in­ac­tion.

What jus­tice be­ing served to us is be­ing paid from our ‘tiny’ com­bined in­dis­cre­tions and trans­gres­sions, whether from ac­tions and in­ac­tions. The con­se­quence for sin is more sin.

Un­til we move be­yond the fears that in­spire our ac­tion and in­ac­tion, un­til we in­vest more than we with­draw, un­til we be­come less self­ish, our tar­get will re­main only an ideal.

We have too many tak­ers and too few peo­ple will­ing to do any­thing about it. Un­til then, in­jus­tice will only con­tinue to breed more in­jus­tice.

TA­FARI MOR­GAN
