"We see that all men mean by justice that kind of state of character which makes people disposed to do what is just and makes them act justly and wish for what is just; and similarly by injustice that state which makes them act unjustly and wish for what is unjust."
- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics Chapter V Section 1
My brother asked me today: Why did you react so strongly and negatively when Dad told you to do something? I said I had a limbic response, something upwelling from my gut.
I propose that the reflex emotion is due to a sense of justice? When someone tells me to do something, I want better reasons than "just do it"...
I think I'm wishing for something more just.
