Justice – What is justice
Justice is the state in which the moral values or moral human rights are used to govern the social interactions of a community or society.
The concept of justice is based on numerous fields, and many differing viewpoints and perspectives including the concepts of moral correctness based on ethics, rationality, law, religion, equity and fairness.

For advocates of the theory that justice is part of natural law (e.g., John Locke), it involves the system of consequences that naturally derives from any action or choice.
For every choice and action one does there are consequences:
When a person reacts or behaves in an immoral way, there are negative consequences and negative energies which are put into force.
When a person behaves in a moral way, there are positive energies which drives out of such actions.
–Immoral behaviors could lead to the damaging of life, corrupting of nature etc.
–Moral behaviors could lead to the improving of life.
Justice seeks to uphold the moral values of good deeds, so that the positive energies of morality may be sustained, honored, and rewarded in a society, which leads to a physical manifestation of peace, unity among people, love, mutual respect, and an autonomous governance or government.
