This is Essay Twenty-Four in the series Lighten the Load, a back-to-basics re-think of government. What should a government be and do? What should it definitely NOT be and do? What are the underlying basic principles upon which we can all agree? Is government even necessary at all? If so, how much and why? How do we decide, against what criteria?

Justice for All
There is a tendency for persons with other fish to fry than real justice to demand justice for an alleged particular crime but never demand, advocate or practice the principle of equal justice for all, the impartial examination of all crimes against human beings, without fear or favour.
Unless the redress of wrongs is the right of all and not of some, the duty of that some as well as of the rest, it isn’t justice. It is by its nature injustice and privilege and, most damningly, a method by which the harmful acts of some are given sanctuary.
As soon as you say it is wrong to murder whites, not blacks, to bomb Englishmen not Serbs, to restrict the liberty of men but not women, to repress or enslave the people of one country, province, continent or area but not another, it simply isn’t justice.
Similarly, if you erect a financial barrier where justice is more fully accessible to those with a few hundred thousand pounds or dollars in the bank and so exclude large numbers of people who don’t have that kind of money, you have injustice.
Without justice there is little chance of peace, order, security or liberty.
Human groups will sicken and eventually die in the absence of its corrective mechanism.
If Man wishes to succeed, if he wishes to guarantee his own survival, then he must be vigilant and relentless in his implementation of true justice.
Justice isn’t a luxury; it is an indispensable prerequisite of a decent existence.
Uphold Justice or Perish
Any government that is insincere in its implementation of justice will not endure.
Here we find one of the primary reasons why governments and systems on Earth tend to be so short-lived: the sanctuary and freedom to operate given to destructive groups of one ilk or another by rendering them immune to justice.
The Anglo-American civilisation, for example, began to flourish as it made a half-decent stab at an equitable justice system. But now it is in its death throes because it never went the whole road internally and hardly extended justice to its foreign policy and international relations at all.
There are undoubtedly other factors in the decay of America and Britain as cultures, yet each one traces back to a criminal group that has been allowed to operate immune to the survival codes and standards of conduct of the rest.
Men with Crimes Avoid Justice
Justice will only ever be implemented by those who desire it: that is, by honest, decently-motivated people.
It will not be implemented and in fact will be resisted by those who do not desire it: that is, those who engage in counter-survival acts that any justice system would be bound to curtail.
Who but those with objectives inimical to good people would oppose or refuse to assist justice?
This gives us another way to spot a criminal person or group: they will oppose or decline to assist the implementation of justice.
If there is some genuine attempt to erect a justice system, to resolve disputes between nations and to provide for weak and strong alike a system for redressing wrongs, and some government or other opposes or will not assist it, then that government has criminals dictating at the very least its foreign policy.
The first action should be to investigate that government and uncover all its criminal groups and all their crimes.
Then make them very public. One should particularly present those crimes and the evidence thereof to that nation’s own people for their consideration because the crimes uncovered will violate the survival codes, laws and basic decencies of that nation’s people.
One should at the same time demand justice and all the procedures thereof discussed here. That includes the right of those accused to a fair hearing and the full impartial examination and verification of all the evidence.
Do not target or accuse a nation as a generalisation but merely seek to reveal specific persons or groups that are hiding specific destructive acts.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
