Fandango’s Provocative Question #77


FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

This week’s provocative question is about justice.E567C17C-6A1B-448C-929E-4650B83AE7CF

My provocative question for this week is this:

Do you believe, with respect to the judicial system (or systems) in place where you live, that justice is, indeed, blind? Why do you feel that way?


In a utopian world, justice would be blind, impartial, and unbiased. But this is not utopia.

I can talk about third world countries like Pakistan, where though things are improving slowly, justice is very much tilted towards those with money, power, and connections. A rich person or one who holds power or is well connected can expect the wrath of justice to be diluted and weak. Whereas a poor person will find themselves at the mercy of the swift sword of speedy justice.

But a first world country like the USA is not much better. During my stay here I have seen a lot of tilt towards those who are in power or are rich. Take the recent impeachment trial of POTUS!

So it is safe to say that lady justice has her blindfold askew and is peeking through it unashamedly.

Will there be a time when people can expect justice to be impartial?
