A Rigmarole Called Rights (3)

There is a certain dissonance when the outcome of applying rights is termed as justice. Justice is portrayed as a triumphant stance in which spectators applaud the tenacious individual or group, and institutions bestow the rewards they deem appropriate in order to excuse a particular violation.

It is nothing more than frivolous atonement by the institutions creating the conditions that fuelled the discourse of rights. Depicting justice as an honour to be bestowed at random is despicable.

The coined term does not compensate for stolen lives.
