I am disagreeing with nathaniel, as he has concluded that to be just is to be doing something that you believe to be right and good. he says in his essay “For example; If somebody throws a rock at people passing by his house, and he knows what he is doing is wrong, he is unjust. However if he thought what he was doing was a good things (for whatever reason) than what he is doing is not good, but he does not know that, therefore he is not being unjust.” we see countless examples throughout history of people believing to do whats right but really they were in the wrong. One of the most famous is Adolf Hitler as he led his people to believe what they were doing was just and right, we see the same from stalin as well. Justice is doing whats right. Not what you “believe” is right but what you know is right through your conscience and if a christian then through the bible
