Frequently asked questions about injustice and fairness

What is meant by justice?

Justice means that all people/beings are treated equally. It is the basis of peaceful, harmonious coexistence in our society. Whoever acts justly, acts fairly - and regardless of educational level, financial situation or external characteristics.

Is justice a need?

Anyone who has ever been treated unfairly knows that justice is a human need. Nobody wants to be treated differently or worse because of his/her gender, origin, age, external characteristics or personal history. Every person feels the need to be treated fairly and equally.

What exactly is fair behavior?

Those who behave fairly act according to the rules, decently, equitably and honestly - and maintain this attitude even in those moments when it seems difficult. Fairness is ultimately the basis for harmonious and constructive cooperation.

Use these quotes to fight injustice of all kinds!

When we observe injustice, we must Do something about it instead of resigning. Sayings like "that's cruel" or "that's unfair" are of no use to anyone if we ourselves do nothing about it or even remain part of the cause of the injustice for longer. If, for example, we are fed up with the fact that the Rainforests cut down and indigenous peoples and thousands of animal species lose their homes, then above all we should stop eating meat in order to end this injustice. The important thing is to always understand the connection between our own actions and such problems - and then to do better.
