Let's look at the virtue of Justice and have a chat!

This month we are looking at the virtue of justice. Our virtue card reads: 

Justice is being fair in all that we do. We continually look for the truth, not bowing to others' judgments or perceptions. We do not backbite. We clear up problems face to face. We make agreements that benefit everyone equally. When we commit a wrong, we are honest in correcting it and making amends. If someone is hurting us, it is just to stop them. It is never just for strong people to hurt weaker people. With justice, we protect everyone's rights. Sometimes when we stand for justice, we stand alone.

The Practice of Justice:

I think for myself

I do not engage in prejudice or backbiting

I make fair agreements

I make restitution for my mistakes

I honor people's rights including my own

I have the courage to stand up for the truth


"Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander."

    Really good night, thanks Becky. The group is called boycott4us. They are on face book. They regularly demo at Agecroft Swinton and Leeds they are the two main dogs4us middllemen of farmed puppies.
    Anyone reading this. Please consider rescuing a dog from shelters. Please don't promote the puppy farming industry, or even bone fide breeders. The latter also are guilty of over breeding bitches.
    To all parents please also don't support Mobile Zoos and Live animal parties. This is another cruel gimmicky money spinning industry, where beautiful birds like the eagle owl, spend hours in a van travelling the country to land in public centres. The bird is forced to interract with humans, who poke touch and stroke his wings head and back. These are magnificent nocturnal birds, who should be in the wilds, but are forced to endure bright lights in busy shopping malls and being gawked at and photographed by the public.

    I referenced quite a few documentaries that I have seen on Netflix. They were: The Hunting Ground & Making a Murderer (Steven Avery/Brendan Dassey). You can also support these on Facebook.
    I also referenced Naomi Klein, a Canadian investigative journalist who wrote the book, The Shock Doctrine. She does amazing work with promoting global activism. Naomi has also been covering 'Standing Rock' and NO DAPL (Dakota Access Pipeline). You can check Indigenous Rising Media on Facebook for more info. On youtube you can find two more amazing documentaries: 'Gasland' about fracking in the USA and 'The beautiful truth' about healthcare/cancer industry and Gerson Therapy in the USA. You can connect with Gasland on Facebook. Dear Anita, could you please tell everyone the name of the animal rights group you mentioned? Or if someone from last night remembers could you please post it?

    Hi all, thanks for a great meetup. I thought we had some really interesting insight about justice. Personally, I saw strong link between justice and truthfulness. So I think we'll explore truthfulness next month.
    I wish all of you Happy Holidays! Best wishes, Becky xx

    I speak my mind, i do not sugar coat anything, i lived in america for 7 yrs and saw so many injustices, prejudices, discriminations and why did i see this happen? why did it happen, because there is a lack of respect for justice

      The link between economic inequality (growing all the time) and injustice is an interesting one. In the UK the post war consensus of Keynesian interventionist economics led to increased standards of living at the lower end. That eventually was accompanied by laws aimed at reducing discrimination. But it's not a simple connection. Also, how far can we make a difference in our personal actions and attitudes? I'm sure you'll have an interesting discussion. I hoped to make it but looks like I won't now, but look forward to next year's meetings. Season's greetings, Becky. 🎄
