In this final part of a three part series, we conclude our discussion regarding justice within a society. Our friend, Tom de Lorenzo, is back to help us play this one out.
For this third piece, we consider the genesis of micro-government. If people were deserted on an island, à la Lost, is it really reasonable to think that people would act in an ethical manner. Jad argues against the premise of this by suggesting that survivalism is not part of the ethical construct.
From there, we go on discussing how much of a modern convenience the notion of justice really is. Specifically, we consider biological realities and attempt to determine if humans are naturally violent or naturally peaceful.
