Administering a Form of Justice (49)
The marble halls of justice are epitomes of intimidation and national revenge. A conflation occurs between justice and revenge, with authorities christening this aberration a conquest for truth. A nation's immorality is represented by flawed declarations that shelter the oppressor's realm, treating conspiracy as an elevated expression of art. The invisible narrator's solitude is tarnished as justice renders patience an obsequious virtue - just as a fragment of a century ago the anonymous artist experienced the epitome of how education fostered a culture of rampant evil that fettered the revolutionary to wallow in a mediocre caricature of attainment.
