“The idea that everybody gets what they deserve -good people get good things, and bad people get bad things – sounds like such a wonderful idea at first glance. But when you think about it, if it’s really true that we are all flawed and we all make mistakes, it means that we all need to be punished. So the state of fairness is where everyone is punished. That view of reality is sobering. Justice can’t be an end in itself.”
