The history of justice is explored in these essays drawn from a high court judge's 15 years of courtroom experience. Using scripture, history, law, philosophy, science, government, and political economy, these writings seek to place modern notions of justice within their historical context in order to better understand the patchwork means by which governments typically remedy claims of injustice. Ultimately, the goal of such scrutiny would be to restore a greater measure of justice in the economic realm. Historical tensions between freedom of the individual and government; the rule of law as it is understood in the American Declaration of Independence, in England, in Blackstone’s Commentaries, during the French Revolution, and today; the problem of poverty in blighting progress; and how socialism, in trying to ameliorate the worst excesses of unbridled capitalism, has spawned injustices of its own, are among the topics discussed.

Book Description Shepheard-Walwyn (Publishers) Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Drawing on his fifteen years experience as a High Court judge in England, the author explores the concept of justice in seven essays. He acknowledges that definition is far from easy but argues that justice today tends to be confined within the phrase social justice , which is inextricably bound up with the remedies promoted by socialist governments - even the policies of right-wing governments in the West are to some extent based on socialist principles. If justice is a difficult concept, injustice is not - the media have no difficulty finding injustices to report every day of the week. If sufficient indignation is aroused, governments feel bound to take action, usually without first inquiring into the cause of the injustice. The result is that the new laws sooner or later breed additional injustice - two wrongs don t make a right . In search of justice, the author has turned to the scriptures, history, law, philosophy, science, government and political economy. The first essay examines how the English nation was shaped from the successive waves of invaders under the guidance of wise men with a strong sense of justice. The second essay explores the tensions between freedom of the individual and government, noting the connection between land enclosures and poverty which had a considerable impact on freedom. The third essay looks at the rule of law with reference to the American Declaration of Independence, the English approach, Blackstone s Commentaries, the French Revolution and modern attitudes. The fourth essay discusses the unnecessary conflict between Philosophy, Science and Religion and tries to show how they could support each other. The fifth essay deals with money and banks, explaining how money acts as a means of exchange and a store of value, and the current role of banks in creating a debt-ridden society. The sixth essay looks at the capitalist society, the problem of poverty that blights progress in the means of production and the philosophy of some of the founding fathers. The final essay looks at how socialism has tried to ameliorate the worst excesses of unbridled capitalism, but in the process has spawned injustices of its own. It concludes with some suggestions on how to restore a greater measure of justice in the economic realm. Seller Inventory # AAO9780856832352
