Administering a Form of Justice (29)
When rule and law become inseparable, there is no recourse for justice to fulfil its role. The combination of malfunctioning halls and minority governments masquerading as a majority create the illusion of rights to conceal the distance separating the government from the people. A bludgeoned term by both entities is the concept of freedom. democracy needs its followers to believe that freedom is accessible within its confines, and justice bestows this fundamental concept on those it deems worthy, regardless of blame, crime or innocence. In the wake of this disruption, democracy and justice act as the sentinels that prohibit thought as a necessity for the masses, regaling them instead with explanatory pamphlets and reassurances that the highest institutions are capable of attending to everything, as befits their patriotic duty.
