We Give in the Name of Justice...
POLL: So Shall We Take?
 Yes. Do unto others, full-circle.
 No. Understanding is not a weapon.

We claim to understand the moral value of the act of giving, but given that the promotion of (righteous) abundance is waged as an outright counter to loss, does that understanding not also encompass the moral value of the act of taking?

If we give on the principle that giving is inherently morally apt, then there is no limit. We give until there is nothing left. Of course that's not fair, even if we assure ourselves it is for the better.

When we see others giving what we perceive as too much, we wish for them to have more, yes?

And if we see others taking what we perceive as too much, we wish they have less?

What right do we have to give if justice is the aspiration of our dutiful application?

If the justice of taking should be blind, then so shouldn't the justice of giving?

We all want justice...

Is that will all we need?

Interesting...

Someone decided to deprive me of my nice & cozy N/A rating to satisfy their sense of justice, meaning to directly defy the very concept of negative judicial enactment.
