Justice is not natural

Today’s issue is about the idea of justice and how it feeds the religious impulse. Justice is a man-made construct. But religion makes it supernatural and extends it into afterlives and future lives.

Justice nahi milega
Religion and justice have a deep connect, but not in the way you might expect. People are religious because of their faith in an extended definition of justice - one that stretches past death and into future lives. A lot of people wouldn’t be religious if their religion didn’t promise them justice in magical afterlives. Justice is actually an entirely human construct. It does not exist in nature. Here’s a short audio essay on how justice and our expectation of it keeps religion alive.
