"THE END OF THE WORLD" or "Why Justice Is Our Biggest Problem?" “Our world is corrupt. The best proof of this is our desire for justice. We want fairness. We want equal opportunity. We want a level playing field. We want a rule of law that applies to everyone. We make justice a goal, a way to peace. We think that justice is a sign of a healthy society. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Anyone who has given the matter any amount of thought will see the problem with “people getting what they deserve.” A world that makes sense in this way is the last thing we should want. Yet, because of our on-going misreading of the ancient narratives that give us our values, we keep suffering from this fundamental misunderstanding.”
