"The Supreme Court struck a blow for discrimination this week by stripping a key civil rights law of much of its potency." So begins the NY Times editorial, May 31, 2007. In this case, centered on the issue of equal pay for equal work, the high court reversed the lower court's ruling, enshrining in its regressive decision the dicta that the victim of discrimination bears the responsibility for her own injustice.
It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive.
If it were not for injustice, men would not know justice.
In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying.
Justice delayed, is justice denied.
