“If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.” - Ernesto Che Guevara
If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of ours. The struggle against oppression and inequality is a fight that we all must participate in. It is essential that we unite to create a more just world. We must stand up to discrimination and bigotry, and work to make our communities and societies more inclusive. We must fight for social justice, and make sure that everyone has the same chance to succeed.
“Talking about justice, doing injustice is indeed unfair conduct and hypocrisy.” - Ehsan Sehgal
Talking about justice, doing justice is indeed unfair conduct and hypocrisy. Justice should not only be preached, it should be practiced. Hypocrisy is rampant when it comes to justice, because people tend to talk about it but do not abide by it. People often use the "law of averages" when it comes to morality, meaning that they think that what they are doing is okay because it has been done in the past.
“There is no justice to be had in wanton blind destruction, just more injustice.” - C.A.A. Savastano
There is always more injustice to be had in wanton blind destruction. Destruction without thought or care for the consequences can result in loss of life, limb, and property. It leaves survivors to pick up the pieces and carry on while those who caused the devastation stand idly by, often with a smug look on their faces. This is often how wars start and it is how disasters such as hurricanes and floods occur.
“… the richest tenth of the world’s adults owned 85 percent of global assets in the year 2000. The poorest half, in contrast, owned barely 1 percent. … Pause for a moment, to resist letting those numbers drift by unconsidered.” - Cynthia Moe-Lobeda
The world has become a very different place since the year 2000. In that year, the richest tenth of the world's adults owned 85 percent of global assets. The poorest half, in contrast, owned barely 1 percent. The situation has changed radically since then as the share of global wealth held by the poorest half has more than halved.
“Injustice on one life is injustice on all lives.” - Abhijit Naskar

“Injustice, in the end, produces independence.” - Voltaire
Injustice is something that has plagued humanity for centuries. It's a scourge that can produce independence, but it always must be fought against. For too long, individuals have been Blind to injustice and have allowed it to continue. This ultimately leads to independence and peace.
“The trouble was, no one thought about the victims anymore. It was all about human rights for the criminal. Injustice was the name of the game now.” - Sibel Hodge
Human rights were a topic of discussion for many years, but few people paid attention to the victims. It was all about running the criminal away, instead of looking at them in their own interest. Now, it seems as though society has changed, and the victims are once again being forgotten.
“Love and freedom are such hideous words. So many cruelties have been done in their name.” – Joseph O’Connor
Love and freedom are often used in the wrong way, and for the wrong reasons. Love is a natural emotion, but it should not be used to make people do bad things. Freedom is also a natural emotion, but it should not be used to make people do bad things. It’s important to remember that love and freedom are two different things.
“You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation.” - Marian Wright Edelman
In this day and age, it's hard to not feel the pressure of justice. Too often we see injustice levied against individuals and groups who don't have a voice. Whether it's through social media, the news, or just your everyday life, there is always something happening that feels like it needs to be addressed.
“When you see injustice among the nations, you will find out that the root cause is covetousness.” - Sunday Adelaja
When you see injustice among the nations, you will find out that the root cause is covetousness. This is because people are born with this propensity and it is something that they cannot help but keep alive. Nations can only get along as long as they are not greedy and they do not hurt others unintentionally. If they are, they will create more disharmony and conflict.
“If the system turns away from the abuses inflicted on the guilty, then who can be next but the innocents?” - Michael Connelly
In the past, the system has turned a blind eye to and allowed abuse to continue. This is no longer the case. There must be consequences for those who engage in abuse, and the system must be made to reflect that. If there are not, then it is only a matter of time until innocent people are victimized as well.
“It’s not unpatriotic to denounce an injustice committed on our behalf, perhaps it’s the most patriotic thing we can do.” - E.A. Bucchianeri
Many people might say that it is unpatriotic to denounce an injustice committed on our behalf. They might be right, but there is something more patriotic that we can do. We can stand up and fight for justice, no matter how hard it might seem at first.
“Man cannot be freed by the same injustice that enslaved it.” - Pierce Brown
Debate about the status of man and slavery has been going on for centuries, and there is no clear answer. One major argument against emancipation is that it would mean freeing all slaves, which would likely lead to more slave revolts. Another argument is that slaveholders would still have access to their slaves, so freeing them would not free them. There is no right answer to the question of whether or not a man can be freed from the same injustice that enslaved him.
“Change can only be brought about when we have the courage to speak about the injustices we see.” - Erin Thorp
In order to make changes, we must first have the courage to speak about what we see. When we allow our pain and anger to be expressed, it can only lead to further change. By opening up about what is wrong, we can begin a process of change that will benefit everyone involved.
“If thou sustain injustice, console thyself; the true unhappiness is in doing it.” - Democritus
Justice is an important goal, but there is also a must for people to remember that unhappiness comes from doing injustice. One way to stay happy is to understand the consequences of one’s actions and try to make amends. If you can, it is important to support others in their pursuits of justice, too.
“When your bones ignite and your blood boils at the sight of misery, injustice, and hate, that’s when you are truly born as a human.” - Abhijit Naskar
If you have ever seen the pain and misery on the faces of people who are living in poverty, or seen the hate and violence that is taking place all over the world, then you know that there is something wrong with humanity. When you see those things, it makes you want to scream and fight for change. But when you look closer, you realize that there is a lot of good in people too.
“If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin.” – Charles Darwin
The quote discusses the idea that the misery of the poor is not caused by natural laws, but by our institutions. This is because the institutions that we have created a reality in which people are unable to live comfortable lives.
“Men use thought only as authority for their injustice and employ speech only to conceal their thoughts.” - Voltaire
There has been a recent trend in society where men have taken over the role of authoritative figures. They use their thoughts and speeches to justify their actions and conceal their true intentions. This has caused great loss to society as a whole, as men are no longer able to benefit from the full stream of knowledge that comes with being an informed individual. This lack of knowledge has led to many problems, such as the current state of the economy.
“Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor money in the bank either. Just refuse to bear them.” - William Faulkner
You can't help but feel the anger and hurt when you see people who have been wronged. You can't help but feel shame and dishonor when you hear about injustice or outrage or dishonor or shame. You must never stop refusing to bear those things. No matter how young you are or how old you have got.
“Money can buy the necessary police order. Justice is sold to the highest bidder.” - Rohinton Mistry
Money can buy the necessary police order. Justice is sold to the highest bidder. Innocent people are arrested and go to jail because of this. Innocent people are killed because of this. Families are torn apart because of this. Corruption is rampant in the justice system because of money.
“… a broken nation, under siege, divisible, without liberty and injustice for a lot…” - Jeffrey G. Duarte
In the span of two years, the United States has seen two massive protests that have captured the nation’s attention. These protests are a broken nation under siege, divisible, without liberty and justice for a lot. The tensions between Donald Trump’s administration and various groups of citizens have only made matters worse. Protests have become an everyday occurrence in major cities across America. This is due to the fact that the US government does not respect civil liberties or operate democratically.
“No amount of me trying to explain myself was doing any good. I didn’t even know what was going on inside of me, so how could I have explained it to them?” – Sierra D. Waters
We never knew what was happening to us. We were confused and didn't know what was wrong with us. We didn't understand why we felt the way we did and we couldn't explain it to anyone.
“Always seek justice, but love only mercy. To love justice and hate mercy is but a doorway to more injustice.” – Criss Jami
In any society, it is important to have both justice and mercy. Justice is the equitable distribution of rewards and punishments that is consistent with the law. Mercy, on the other hand, is understanding and forgiveness. When people only seek justice, it often leads to inequality and injustice. It is important to understand that love should always be combined with mercy when dealing with others.
“Justice doesn’t mean the absence of injustice, it means the presence of the determination to stand up to injustice.” - Abhijit Naskar
Justice is not the absence of injustice, it is the presence of the determination to stand up to injustice. This was exemplified in a recent case where a young girl was bullied and then committed suicide. The community rallied together to create a fund in her name and raise awareness about bullying. This story shows that justice does not mean the absence of injustice, it means the presence of people who are willing to fight for it.
“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.” - Thomas Jefferson
When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty. This is the call to arms for all of us who believe in democracy and justice. We must stand up against injustices that are perpetrated by those in power, and fight for what is right. We must be vigilant and oppose any attempt to erode our rights and liberties. We can only do this if we work together as a community, united in our beliefs.
“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” – Voltaire
When it comes to the brain, beliefs are everything. And what we believe controls our actions. That's why some people can make you believe absurdities and make you commit atrocities.
“So many wars have been fought and so much injustice has been perpetrated because we’ve banished others from our group and therefore our circle of concern.” - Dalai Lama XIV
In a world where so many wars have been fought and so much injustice has been perpetrated, it is important to remember that there are consequences to excluding others from our group. In doing so, we create a circle of concern that excludes those who are not part of our group. This circle of exclusion can lead to bad outcomes for all involved.
“Everything human beings can imagine has been thrown at injustice, and injustice just absorbs it and enlarges.” - Greg Baxter
Justice is a concept that has been thrown at injustice for as long as humans have existed. It's a difficult concept to define, and even more difficult to achieve. But, despite the difficulty in achieving it, justice is something that everyone believes in. There are countless stories of people who have fought for justice, even when it seems impossible. And, despite all the obstacles thrown at it, justice always manages to prevail.
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve a lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” - Robert F. Kennedy
When we stand up for what's right, or take action to improve a lot of others, or fight against injustice, we're collectively sending out tiny ripples of hope. These ripples eventually cross and create waves of change. When we do this, we're doing our part in making the world a better place.
“Lands of great discoveries are also lands of great injustices.” - Ivo Andric
America was founded on the idea of justice and equality. But that ideal has not always been realized in practice. The land of great discoveries - America - has also been the land of great injustices. Native Americans were forcibly removed from their land, and slavery was an integral part of America's early economy. Today, indigenous people are still fighting for their rights to land and resources, while people of color continue to face discrimination and violence.
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” - Elie Wiesel
Protests are a way for the public to voice their opinion and stand up against injustices. They allow us to show our support for the cause and let others know that we will not tolerate what is being done. Protests can be an effective way to bring about change and make our voices heard. However, there are times when we are powerless to prevent injustice from happening. In these cases, we must continue to protest in order to bring attention to the issue and force change.
“And yet the feeling of injustice itself turned out to be strangely physical. Even more real, in a way, than her hurting, smelling, sweating body. Injustice had a shape, a weight, and a temperature, and a texture, and a very bad taste.” - Jonathan Franzen
Justice has always been something that people want to see. Whether it is in the form of a fair trial, or someone being given their due, people are drawn to it. However, in some cases, justice may not be served. This can take many different forms, such as when someone is wronged and they do not get the same treatment as someone else. This can be frustrating and make people feel angry. In some cases, the anger may even become physical.
“Rage - whether in reaction to social injustice, or to our leaders’ insanity, or to those who threaten or harm us - is a powerful energy that, with diligent practice, can be transformed into fierce compassion.” – Bonnie Myotai Treace
People all around the world experience rage in different ways. Some people use it as a powerful tool to fight for social justice. Others use it as a way to cope with anger and frustration. And some people use it to harm others or themselves. However, rage can be a powerful energy that, with diligent practice, can be transformed into fierce compassion.
“You cannot right injustice by injustice.” - Geraldine Brooks
When injustice is done to one person, it often encourages more injustice to be done in the future. This is because it becomes easier for those who do wrong to continue doing so, since they know that they will not face consequences. In order to right injustices, we must look at the root causes and work to address them. Doing so will help to prevent further harm and promote a more just society.
“My own attitude to the innumerable injustices of life has always been a philosophical one, especially when they have tended to operate in my favor.” - Auberon Waugh
No one is immune to the pains and injustices of life. However, some people take a philosophical approach to these things in order to derive strength and perspective.
“Excessive, unmatched greed is the oxygen of every abusive, manipulative, destructive, narcissistic Machiavellian power player of today’s kakistocracy, kleptocracy, injustice, corruption, and impunity.” - Angelica Hopes
In the current global political landscape, it is no secret that abusive, manipulative, and narcissistic power players abound. These individuals are often referred to as Machiavellians, kakistocrats, kleptocrats, or injustice sycophants. The reason these types of individuals are so successful at gaining and holding power is that they rely on excessive greed to fuel their abusive behavior.
“Stand up to injustice, even if you stand alone.” - Suzy Kassem
There is a lot of injustice in the world and it can be hard to stand up to it. But sometimes, standing up to injustice is the only thing that we can do. Sometimes, we have to stand up to an unfair situation even if we are all by ourselves. We need to remember that there are people out there who care about justice and who will help us fight for what is right.
“Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.” – Honore de Balzac
Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught. In today's society, laws are often used as a tool to punish those who break them. However, this punitive approach can have unintended consequences. Laws can also be used to control and manipulate citizens. As a result, laws can have a negative impact on society as a whole. This is especially true in countries with authoritarian regimes where the government controls the media and uses it to propagate its own agenda.
“The world was fucked up. It was hard to say how exactly, but we could feel it. There was injustice, lots of it, we saw it as a dull shape coming into focus.” – Michelle Tea
Every day, we wake up to injustice. It was a dull shape coming into focus, but we knew it was there. We saw it as a problem that needed to be addressed, even if it was hard to say how exactly. We talked about it and shared our ideas, but still the problem remained. It felt like we were just playing defense, and the other team was always ready to score. We had to do something.
“Justice is my being allowed to do whatever I like. Injustice is whatever prevents my doing so.” - Samuel Johnson
Justice is one of those abstract concepts that we all know exists, but never quite understand. It's a concept that we see in the world around us, yet never truly experience. We see injustice when someone is treated unfairly, when someone doesn't have the same opportunities as others, and when someone's rights are violated. Injustice can be as simple as not being allowed to play in the park after school, or as complex as genocide.
“Do not make the mistake of thinking that you have to agree with people and their beliefs to defend them from injustice.” - Bryant McGill
Do not make the mistake of thinking that you have to agree with people and their beliefs to defend them from injustice. People who are defending others without considering their own beliefs or perspectives are just as guilty as those who are attacking. If you want to help someone, try engaging them in a conversation about their beliefs and why they hold them, rather than jumping to conclusions.
“Rather than justice for all, we are evolving into a system of justice for those who can afford it. We have banks that are not only too big to fail but too big to be held accountable.” - Joseph E. Stiglitz
Over the past few decades, we have seen a dramatic shift in the way that justice is administered. Instead of a system that is intended to provide equal treatment for all, we have evolved into a system that is based on who can afford to pay for it. This change has occurred in part because of the growth of big banks and the lack of regulation that has accompanied it.
“Yes, the truth is that men’s ambition and their desire to make money are among the most frequent causes of deliberate acts of injustice.” - Aristotle
There are many reasons why men may want to commit injustices. Some men may be ambitious and want to achieve wealth and power, while others may be motivated by greed. In many cases, men act deliberately to inflict harm on others, often for financial gain or other personal gain. This is often referred to as "malevolent justice," and it can have devastating consequences for both individuals and society as a whole.
“The only way I can pay back for what fate and society have handed me is to try, in minor totally useless ways, to make an angry sound against injustice.” - Martha Gellhorn
Although it might sound like a daunting task, trying to make an angry sound against injustice is the only way to try and change the course of history. Although it might seem futile, making an angry sound will add a level of energy and intensity to our fight. It will also remind us that there is still a chance for change, despite what fate has placed upon us.
“We first crush people to the earth, and then claim the right of trampling on them forever, because they are prostrate.” – Lydia Maria Child
In order to maintain their place on the earth, people must be humble and allow others to trample on them. This is the traditional way of thinking that has been perpetuated for centuries.
“I welcome injustice because injustice gives me something to strive for. We need the darkness, for it allows the light to shine. God’s greatest gift to mankind is Satan because evil gives us something to strive against.” - Jan Golembiewski
Justice is something that we need, especially in today's society. When we can see injustice, it gives us something to strive for. It allows us to see the good in people and to feel hope. God has given us Satan, the one who brings darkness instead of light. This allows us to see the evil in people and to feel anger and hatred. We need this darkness so that we can see the good in people and feel hope.
“The human voice is still the most paramount vessel or weapon to use, to uphold justice and to protest against injustice.” - Sunday Adelaja
The human voice is still the most paramount vessel or weapon to use, to uphold justice and protest against injustice. The voice can be used for good or bad, but its importance cannot be questioned. It is the voice that can be heard over the sound of gunfire and the sound of a blade slicing through flesh. The human voice can be used to call out for help or to demand justice.
“There were countless injustices and difficulties in this world, but small points of light too, where the darkness was held back.” - Alexander McCall Smith
At one point in human history, there were many injustices and difficulties in the world. However, small points of light shone through where darkness was held back. This is what happened in the past with regard to the issue of racism. Racism existed, but it was hidden and hidden behind many different factors. One such factor was a lack of awareness. Another factor was the fact that people were afraid to talk about racism because it would make them appear weak.
“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.” – George Orwell
There is no one answer to this question, as the future is impossible to predict. However, by imagining a more perfect future where humans are happy and healthy, we can begin to build a better understanding of what could be possible. This type of thinking can help us make informed decisions about the future, and create a better understanding of our own potential.
“At the root of every form of ungodliness, injustice, nepotism, selfishness, every rivalry, and competitive jealousy, is the monster called greed.” - Sunday Adelaja
Greed is the root of all evil in the world, and it motivates people to compete and love themselves more than others. It is the root of every rivalry, and it is what causes people to be selfish. Greed is the root of every competitive jealousy, and it motivates people to pursue their own interests at any cost.
“There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice.” - Charles-Louis de Secondat
The abuse of power by law enforcement officials has brought about a form of tyranny that is no greater than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice. This type of tyranny allows law enforcement officials to abuse their power without fear of repercussion, leading to an increase in crime and corruption.

Whether it is the pain of a loved one passing away, the pain of going through a difficult experience, or the pain of feeling injustice go unaddressed, there is always some form of pain that we deal with on a daily basis. Despite this, we continue to live our lives because we believe that things can still change and that justice can still be delivered.
“The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.” - George Carlin

“People don’t always get what they deserve in this world.” - Lemony Snicket

Some people may not have what it takes to get what they want in life, while others may not be given a fair chance. People can often get what they deserve by working hard and making themselves indispensable to their community or loved ones.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Justice is an idea that has been around for centuries and has been used to mean different things to different people. In some places, justice is seen as a way to get what you want by creating a system where people are held accountable. Other places see justice as something that should be done evenly and fairly, regardless of who you are or what you have. Regardless of which side of the justice spectrum you stand on, the idea of justice is important.
“One should never underestimate how callous or indifferent people can be when it’s in their interest to be so.” - Marty Rubin
People can be callous or indifferent when it is in their interest to be so. This has been shown in many cases where people have taken advantage of others and have done things that have been harmful to them or to those around them. It is important to always be aware of how people can be, and not take things too lightly.

People who are unhappy with their current state of the world are usually people who are not very good at analyzing things. People who are unhappy with the way things are usually do not have a lot of knowledge about life or the world in general. They just feel that things are not right and they cannot accept what they see. This is usually because they have never had a good life or been through a lot of pain and suffering.
“I guess the only time most people think about injustice is when it happens to them.” - Charles Bukowski
Justice is a concept that people have for a reason. People have it because they believe in something bigger than themselves, something that allows them to make decisions that benefit others. Justice is what allows us to look at the world and see what is best for everyone, not just ourselves.
“It takes great courage to open one’s heart and mind to the tremendous injustice and suffering in our world.” - Vincent A. Gallagher
