One of the things that humankind has to get rid of in order to continue its progress is the concept of justice in the hands of the state.
Justice as a power of the state is nothing more than an exercise in rhetoric destined to impose control, but never to give back, reproduce or produce anything of lasting value for the people; we cannot even speak of the beauty of justice. There are no poems in law, no myths, no heroics. A court is just lawyers pitted against lawyers knowing that they will charge their desperate clients more or less money according to the kind of show they put up.
Justice is just business; it is just the business of telling us what nature has been saying all along since the proterozoic: the strongest always wins.
What justice and its lawyers and judges dressed in fancy robes accomplishes is to give the powerful an advantage, but nothing for the common person. If you are truly fortunate, you will never have to face a lawyer in your life; if you are unfortunate, you will face many, and if you are truly, truly unfortunate, a judge will decide upon your life as well but do you think that anything will change? Only the bulk of money in your pocket.
The fundamental difference between ethics as understood by religion and the law system is that seeking salvation in legal terms means a significant expenditure of money, while a Rabbi, Chaplain or Imam will not charge you by the hour to listen to your grievances. Lawyers have been charging fees for the truth, while priests have not, for centuries; this never changed and will never change.
Those self-appointed interpreters of truth pretend to tell mankind that they are as indispensable as daemons to bring redress and peace of mind to us from the netherworld of ethereal ethics - for a fee, of course -, while any true master of ideas, be it a philosopher, a spiritual leader, etc. doesn't charge anything for speaking his or her mind. People don't need thousands of pages of legal texts written in Alchemist's gobbledigook to know what is right and wrong, much as you don't need to have a definition as long as a DNA strand to know that something is a piece of art when you see it: The three religions of archetypal monotheism - Islam, Judaism and Christianity - have been doing well for thousands of years basically on the ethics of the Ten Commandments.
The truth is that truth doesn't need interpreters or payments to remain authentic; thus, the system that we consider indispensable is not only worthless but a parasite that drains us ever day.
It is also as unbeautiful to look at as a skin mole or eating a pudding made out of sand; there is no art o mastery - except in lying - in "the law", and really nothing to remember or celebrate. And as for me, things without beauty are pointless, so in order to keep a sense of justice in my existence, I prefer to remember from time to time the tradition of burial among the Sarmatians, which prepared the soul of the deceased to travel to the land of Narn and to cross the Shinvat peretu, the bridge of trial, where it will have to answer to Zurvan, the God of time and destiny, for what it had done and accomplished in life.
For those who couldn't explain their past deeds, the bridge would become as thin and sharp as a sword, and they would eventually fall to the hamestagan, where they will remain until salvation.
The idea can't get simpler than that, and I will not charge a fee for telling you.
