Revealed images of justice(s)

Jus unum, the law is one. Are we inspired by the same universal values that tend towards justice? And what indeed is justice? Without any doubt it’s not just that blindfolded lady holding scales. Is it an ideal? A dream? For the legal expert, justice refers not to what is just, but to what is conform to the positive legislation as applied by the judicial institutions. Justice can also be unfair, the law arbitrary. History shows us many examples of iniquitous laws! But for each of us, justice is a feeling, a sensation. What is just or unjust? We are drawn from the singular to the plural. Each life history reveals a personal image of justice. Justice, justices...
And so what does justice mean to you?
