The whole & its parts

Injustice and power

A task of leadership is to prevent injustice.

However, this doesn’t mean that it can always be achieved.

The individual perceptions of what justice would be are too diverse and contradictory.

When an automatic reaction to a then appearing sense of injustice consists in an effort to create justice there is a chance that the situation shifts into a power game. It becomes a situation in which there is a sense that either injustice must be repaired, or justice must be created.

That obligation represents the power game, and thus the desire to be attributed the power others seem to have. It’s the beginning of a conflict, one with the potential to last forever.

The task then shifts to prevent such an injustice from reappearing and to accept that that injustice was experienced.
