The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

01 September 2010 @ 19:55

…is awarded to Ran, impassioned writer behind the edifying blog Si Vis Pacem, for his understanding of the two completely opposite ways the Left and the Right view justice [asterisks in the original]:

One of the victims of leftist murder is the term Justice. It was ripped from it’s parent, the Individual, and left to die in the streets of the Collective. Today the wizened corpse of Justice is held aloft as an idol, to be dragged behind all manner of collectivist parasite: Simply identify a grievance community or a coven of deviants – or invent one from whole cloth** – append “Justice” and voilà… Insta-cause du jour!… And another tug at the heart-strings of simpletons for the usurpation of power by elites. Social Justice, Environmental Justice, Animal Justice

Each individual’s unalienable Rights and Responsibilities are endowed by his Creator… so too, Justice. Justice is always and everywhere an individual phenomenon. Denial of this straightforward fact is at the core of slavery, is it not? We are made, each of us in the Image of God: Thus, we own our selves, we are ultimately responsible for our selves and for our choices and for the content of our personal character. We must answer for our own sins as we enjoy the blessings of our own pursuits.

When free people decide amongst themselves the values of products and services in the market, this is Justice. When free peoples decide for themselves what they can afford and where they shall save & invest and where they shall charitably give, this is Justice.

Anything else is Power.

Spot-on [and dead solid perfect, to boot].

The Left loves them their raw Will To Power.

‘Ach! Zoze swinehunds Obama and Holder are batsh-t crazy!’

    That’s a helluva quote. I’m going to shamelessly exploit it later.
