Restorative Justice

The time is drawing near when enough people will be awake and aware of the deceits and frauds of corporate banks, corporations fronting as “government” and their courts such as the plundering of national public trusts, private property, natural resources and modern day debt slavery, to name but a few.

And, when enough people realize that common law courts and jural assemblies are the only lawful remedy to stop the key pirates of the high seas from invading and plundering the people and their countries and hold the perps accountable for treasonable crimes, their first reaction will be of anger and wanting vengeance.

This will be a mistake. We are going to have to rise above this or we will find ourselves back in a venal and oppressive system and not much different from the one we are turning away from.

True justice is seeking reconciliation and not retribution. What this means is to apply principles of restorative justice such as was used in the Truth & Reconciliation Commission against the previous apartheid regime.

The victims need to be identified, the harm must stop, the losses must be restored free and clear of all debt and encumbrances and the accused must confess, apologise and show remorse and then, of course, be prohibited from holding any public office again.

To punish and imprison people like animals does not rehabilitate them. It merely burdens society. Criminality is mostly a sign that something is wrong with society. Rehabilitating people and community service is most likely the best remedy for a just and lawful society.

However, if we want to be the change we wish to see then we are going to have to be less corrupt, more moral, more ethical and lead by example. We have become corrupt because our governments are corrupt. Ask yourself, how can we judge people in positions of power when we would have done the same as them, if given the chance?

Bastiat said it best when he said: “The state is that great fiction by which everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else.”

This will have to change if we are going to govern ourselves. Otherwise, we may as well give up and continue living in the swamp.

  1. Judge Albie Sachs is a saint and a sage. He has paid a very high price for having fought for justice during the apartheid decades. And he continues to shine the light of his example and to absolve all who have suffered too greatly to see any hope. His words have great value.
