As a Peace Army General and Itinerant Psyciatrist I have come up with a diagonsis that I think shows what we are dealing with.
Injustice Euphoria: n
1. A feeling of well being created by an unjust situation.
2. Feeling righteous inappropriate to one’s life situation.
3. A sense of fair play that is groundless.
“Injustice Euphoria” is a dystopia where an unjust situation seems like the only solution. Rationalizing God’s approval is only natural when an unjust situation looks like the only solution. Supporting the victims of injustice is likened to supporting the people God does not favor.
Being responsible for another’s unhappiness (through commission or omission) bears down on the “Injustice Euphoria” perpetrator’s heart, and can lead to a very hard heart. Hard hearted “Injustice Euphoria” perpetrators have been known to rationalize almost anything, to maintain and raise their comfort and security.
“Acute Injustice Euphoria” Makes a person think making money while creating misery is a Win-Win situation. Being responsible for others’ misery. (through commission or omission). The treatment for “Injustice Euphoria” is to repent and work for a just world as hard as the unjust world was formerly supported. People with “Injustice Myopia” can be helpful in this pursuit.
Habakkuk 2:12 Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and founds a town with injustice.
