- No, i actually agree with you that it does not make a difference who carries it out. My only argument is that one is physical and the other is Mental. In regards to our collective, "Justice" under their definition has never been upheld because even when we win, we loose! Universal Justice however has always been served, it's just that we have lost sight of what true Jusitce is or may have never known what it is that keeps us balanced and at ease.
In case I may have overlooked or forgotten it, tell me again what your understanding of Universal Justice is?
- Again, I partially agree with everything except that the thief is not suffering. The thief is and has been suffering since the thought of robbing someone entered his mind. The only way the thief could have stopped the process of suffering would be to not carry the crime out, though it would have still left a certain level of Dis - ease! Re-offense often occurs, yes, but not to the same victim and how could a thief or any criminal commit a crime if they themselves are not suffering already mentally! Only the mentally dead, seek out to make others suffermentally and or physically. Life, looks to give life and the dead seek death and destruction.
In physics there are 14.7 pds of atmospheric pressure on every sq. inch of the human body and if you don't have a force within to combat the force without, you start to cave in and this is when the Hue-man becomes DIS-EASED! So it is with the victimizer, so it is with the victim across the board. Sometimes we forget what we have gotten away with in the past, so when something happens to us, we don't realize that what we did in the past has just caught up to us and we start to scream for JUSTICE, not realizing JUSTICE has just been served for what we did to someone else a long long time ago..
Do you know those stories often relayed by Black parents about children acting up? Regardless of where the so-called 'offense' occurs, if it is a LEGITIMATE offense, the 'correction' of that offense occurs on the spot---not a year or two later. Logically, it makes perfect sense, and I'm sure you know where I'm heading with this. In as much as a punishable offense/crime should be a LEGITIMATE (i.e. the willful breaking of universal law of which the person has systematically, consciously, and consistently been made aware of by those---here or there^ ---responsible for doing such) charge against the perpetrator, any LEGITIMATE punishment/correction of that crime needs to occur 'on the spot'. Anytime an authority figure, here or there^, issues a punishment, or 'justice', out of context it becomes a moot point. Instinct tells me that punishment occurs to correct certain behaviors or thought processes---basically, to make the soul/entity/person ponder the consequences of her or his actions. Therefore, if you separate crime and punishment (i.e. take them out of context), what you have is no longer justice or balance. You set it up to make the victim look like the perpetrator and the perpetrator to look like the victim. This is a cycle of nonsense because: 1.) You don't learn any lesson out of context----when you are unable to make a connection with what has happened. 2.) How do you know if you are in the lifetime where you are the initial victim or the perpetrator paying for a former crime? This particular take will have HUGE implications for the Black collective which is struggling to understand its centuries old global predicament. Many of us talk of being victims, but, under your theory, is this really true? Are we paying for crimes against other races?...or are we currently legitimate victims? Sometimes, it seems, we get so lost in praising the ancestors' philosophies that we lose the practical meaning behind them. Any legitimate philosophy will show itself---consistently and without contradiction.
