1. lack of fairness or justice.
"the injustice of the death penalty"
Injustice is a word most of us know by definition and is perceived through our own way. According to the English definition, injustice is an act of unfairness or in other words, something that is done wrongfully that one or more does not agree with. Which brings me to my idea of injustice, which everywhere we look, we are surrounded in what I see is wrong, but others falsely claim it to be okay. Take religion for example, there's many types of religions out there—overall, they all lead up to the same idea and that is believing in a higher power.
This world is based upon concrete evidence, we all believe that in order to prove something happened or exists, we must be able to use evidence to support our claims. This is how the court system works, when criminals are charged with accounts of robbery, assault, or even murder, the accused must have concrete evidence that is whether supporting or against them, if no evidence is given to the court than the accused can go free without charge.
And here is how we all end up as hypocrites, there is no concrete evidence of any higher powers mentioned in any of the World's main religions, yet a majority of society depends on a higher power as their savior. Like headless chickens, they run around trying to enforce their beliefs onto others, even though they don't have any proof of their “Gods”. The point I am leading up to with discussing this matter is that, how is it socially acceptable for one to believe in God, but if you believe in ghosts or other large conspiracies, you are considered as “delusional” and therefore can be placed under psychiatric evaluation and damned to have a mental illness?
The religious people of this world are just as delusional as a schizophrenic sitting around in his padded cell. How could I make such a wretched statement? You'll fight back on this argument by claiming that there's a difference between believing in Jesus Christ and a lunatic sitting in a mental asylum, who is saying he sees faces emerging from the walls and can hear voices. You may be right, but a religious person will make the exact same claims. I've heard an innumerable amount of people claiming that they have spoken to Jesus or God, or that they have seen their God before their eyes.
The reality is: you're falsely claiming to see or hear something that is not there, and until you prove me wrong with hardcore evidence, shall I ever believe your outrageous claims. You'll be offended by the idea that you're being told that you are lying, well now you know what it is like to be a madman, to fight and claim that your God is real, you now know what it feels like to be a schizo, to effortlessly assert that something is there; that has no documented evidence.
By documented evidence, I do not mean your word against mine, that would be a battle that neither of us will win. You will tell me that your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and even your ancestors has witnessed the act of God and I can continue to reply with that none of my family heritage has ever witnessed the act of God. Do you see my point here? We're all making accusations, denying and agreeing that something is real when in truth, none of us actually know. Religious fanatics can sit around on their asses, saying that ghosts are not real yet they believe in an afterlife.
That alone is contradiction.
To believe that something doesn't exist because you have not seen it before your very eyes and at the same time say something exists, but you also haven't ever seen it before your eyes, is contradiction, my friend. It is something we are all guilty of doing, it's just a matter of opening our eyes and realizing how foolish we're making ourselves out to be.
Now that I have grabbed your attention, I'd like to mention that in no way am I degrading your belief system nor am I claiming that all the religions out there in this world are a lie, but what I am pointing out is that it is injustice for you to call and deem someone as mentally insane for believing in paranormal phenomenons such as aliens, ghosts, demons, and so forth, yet you, yourself, believe in “God”.
If you're a non-believer, an atheist, or however you wish to label yourself as, then in some way are you able to judge someone for believing in a source that has no concrete evidence. Though my argument is not targeted at those who don't believe in anything, but is directed towards those who do. This is my view on injustice, and I can support myself with the use of common sense and logic. Common sense and logic is my way of life, I am not denying or proving any paranormal occurrences, whatever you believe in is what you choose, and the same applies to me. Therefore I demand to be respected the way I am respecting you and by you calling me a delinquent or crazy, is not respecting me.
Overall, what I'm getting at is that injustice is you telling me I'm living my life wrong because I am believing in what I wish to believe. You cannot tell me that I must believe in God if I believe in the Devil, because throughout my life all I have ever witnessed is evil, and when I have turned to God he has never came back to me, or in anyway has he ever tried to help me. The only way one can overcome the Devil is by conquering him independently. Good, in other words, “God” is found within one's soul, he is not a form or a higher power living among us in the Heavens. No, he isn't even a “he” but an it, we are all our own God in my eyes, we can defeat the evil in our lives if we can locate the good within ourselves.
Fear is how this world controls us, and until we can overcome our weaknesses and fears, shall we ever find peace. Schools, law enforcement, Priests, Popes, celebrities, anything along these lines are the ones who are in control, and they control us with fear. Priests and Popes teach that if you don't live by what their standards are, then you will burn for eternity in Hell. Celebrities teach that if you're not into what all the “cool kids” are into, then you'll never be socially accepted. Law enforcement says that if you don't live by the law, then you're a delinquent. Schools teach that if you don't further your education past post-secondary school, you're not going to land a good future.
In the end, if you shut up and listen to what everyone tells you, you probably won't have much of a struggle and will breeze through easily in life with the occasional ups and downs. If you choose to live a different life, live by what you believe in and do what you think is right, you will have your fights.
God forbid that you ever stand up to those who hold a higher position in life and call them out on what they know they're doing is wrong. They are perceived as always right, they never commit any sins. That's what we're supposed to believe and those who don't follow their way of life must be shut down, and thrown to the shadows being diagnosed with ridiculous trashcan mental illnesses, so that way nobody will ever trust them.
