I know justice is subjective. But when it concerns universal rights, justice should be, and in fact, is objective. It is in that event objective because it concerns rights which are universal. Yes. Universal to all people, regardless of breed or creed. Regardless of religion or faith. Of upbringing or education. That is why they are called universal rights.
The premise of universal rights lie with the acceptance that all human beings are born the same and are entitled to several inalienable rights. These rights are inalienable because they are essential to all human beings. Take any of them away and we would become lesser human. Take my freedom and I would be as good as dead. "Give me liberty, or give me death", says a wise man. What is life without liberty, if I may ask. What is life if you take away my freedom? What is there to live for if I have no right to express what I believe, to practice my faith, to associate myself with those whom I find aggreeable? For what is life without life itself?
Thus it is cowardice - nay, extreme cowardice - and blatant betrayal ,when the State of which I am but a part takes away my inalienable rights without adhering to the due process of the law. Rights which are central and essential to my being. Rights which define me, and others, as human beings. Rights which dignify me and others as human beings. Rights which distinguish me and others as human beings and not some creatures which we are free to cage so that their beauty could be admired by us at their expense. So that their fury could be encaved for our perceived safety and pleasure. So that we could control and mechanise them to our liking and whims.
Outside the moon is shining bright. What beauty. What glory. But sight without touch is an incomplete pleasure, almost an unfinished painting. As much as life without liberty is us living without being alive.
And I could only pray. For God is also universal. And He is my Lord. And their Lord. And everything happens because He wills it.
