Rechtvaardigheid

In Nederland is het gewoon geworden om slachtoffers als daders en daders als slachtoffers aan te klagen; behalve als de overheid zelf partij is

    Alleen in Nederland?

    Stel een vrouw beschermt haar lichaam tegen een verkrachter.
    De verkrachter raakt gewond of gaat dood.
    Wie heeft het dan gedaan?

    Contrast:
    – In een gezonde cultuur zou gezegd worden ‘opgeruimd staat netjes’.
    – In een ongezonde cultuur ‘er gaan belastingopbrengsten verloren’.

    Over rechtvaardigheid gesproken… hier een stukkie dat ik zojuist voor een ander medium schreef.

    In various cultures, a saviour or redeemer is expected. In Judaism a Messiah. In Christianity Jesus. In Islam Mahdi, accompanied by Isa (Jesus). A less known redeemer is the Mongol Genghis Khan. The following is a Mongol folk tale, adapted from Owen Lattimore, Mongol-Journeys:

    “Where is Genghis Khan? He is not dead. What happened was this:
    There was a king in a far country with a daughter fair as the sun. Genghis Khan asked for the maiden. The kind secretly said to his daughter: Here is a knife, very small and very sharp. Hide it in you clothes, and when the time comes you know what to do. As Holy Genghis lay with her, she took out the knife and castrated him. Genghis cried out when he felt the cur, and the people came in, but Genghis only said to them: Take this girl away, I wish to sleep.
    He slept and from that sleep he has never awakened. But would not Holy Genghis heal himself? When he is healed, he will awake and save his people.”

    A book about Genghis Khan starts with the chapter “Introduction: On death and how to survive it”. It mentions the spreading of his genetic material. Apparently, based on genetic material, 16 million men in Eurasia are in effect part of one vast family with one common ancestor. A mausoleum of Genghis is sponsored by China. It doesn’t include his body, but a 4 m. statue of him, as a Buddha.
    “Murals portray Genghis as the genius who built a bridge between east en west, across which flow scholars, merchants and artists, lost in wonder, love and praise. Genghis, reborn in spirit by the faith of his adherents, is more now than a help in past ages; he is a spiritual hope for years to come. It is a strange transformation for a man born in obscurity, impotence and poverty”.

    Do not be mistaken; we do not venerate anybody. However, this man certainly is an interesting figure to study. He battled infections of aggressiveness, violence and corrupt government administration. He destroyed what was not pure and arranged for a healthier infrastructure, healthier social relations – for all, not only for elites! He acted with ferocity and ruthlessness. Although he is often portrayed as a mass murderer, he was no more cruel than other royals in his time. He didn’t defile himself with extreme or unnecessary cruelty. He just did what for example a Messiah, Jesus or Mahdi is supposed to do: Getting rid the world of evil.

    Today, rulers seem to be castrated. After all, how many ordinary people currently have the power and the guts to rule their own lives?

    Those who are subjected, are being kept weak. Those who are elevated, are being made weak. Too little freedom keeps people weak. Too much comport and privileges makes people weak. Also corruption / perversion of character makes people weak.
    We wouldn’t pose Genghis Khan as a perfect example. But he allowed and stimulated the weak to become healthier and stronger.

    P.S.
