Is there justice on Earth? I’ve been striving to find an answer for this question. Many times the answers are contradicting to each other. Sometimes injustice isn’t given much attention, other times it’s taken sincerely. In some places, injustice has become a normal way of living. In some other places, justice is considered sacred, and the law never bends for anyone. Maybe the answer for this question relies on where you are on the planet. Or maybe it’s just a simple no, depending on how you wish to see it.
But why do we even seek justice? As if we all have built-in needs for it. We’ve been told in fairy tales, which are stories written by us, that good always wins. That’s how we used to comprehend justice. Nowadays, we’ve somehow developed a need to see evil win. We started depicting villains as lovable characters, serial killers as heroes, and serious crimes as enormous achievements and goals. I’m afraid this change in our fairy tales is a reflection of how we have changed ourselves and the way we envision justice, and an indicator to where we are heading. No wonder why the world has become a vast dark place, with tiny barely seen light.
