What is timeless is our deep, universal yearning for fairness, for justice. Justice is the organizing principle of the human heart.
It can also be the organizing principle of human society. Not as a byproduct, but as our stated, explicit goal.
If we want justice, we must fight for justice, directly, overtly, tirelessly. The "ism" we seek is right before our eyes. It has been all along. Justism.
I can hear the objections now. What is Justism? How do you define it? Maybe what I call justice you call travesty.
We can argue about that, in fact, we should argue about that. It would certainly elevate the conversation.
We spend all our lives calling for justice while all along it is calling for us. This would be a good time to answer.
