Well, let’s say instead of being a being walking around or sitting down on a planet surrounded by air, you’re a fish in the ocean and your presence causes the water to rise a little and yet you don’t notice your effect upon the system surrounding you. Is it meaningful that you don’t notice your own ease of movement is due to being part of a balanced system or rather, would it be worse if you were aware of the effects you caused upon the entire system (rising the ocean level by existing, causing some beach erosion or perhaps a slight heating?) – …

…oh and I lost my thought :) Sorry!

… ok. Justice. When someone seeks justice, they’re seeking restorative balance of some kind.

Fairness on the other hand, starts with a goal of balance.

But does justice truly restore balance?
