Imagine the law cutting across to everyone equally, a situation where it doesn't matter who you are or what you do, as long as you're guilty you'll get what is due you. A place where the justice system are really serving justice and no one is above the law. The rich and poor alike are subject to the law, where there is no bribery nor are there corruption. All these would create a world we definitely would look up to. Then we all can live knowing fully well that everything is working fine and great.

Have you ever been oppressed, have you seen where someone helplessly is being oppressed, what did you do, how did you feel, did you feel OK or hope you had the powers to bring some changes here. Its harder today to see people uphold their office more than they uphold their personal desires, like you have been ordinated as an officer to promote justice, then an occasion arise where you have to administer judgement to a close pal, would you be truthful to the job or see ways to help them cut corners.

I have observe that a nation can have many voiceless citizens and its either you're wealthy or powerful to have a say, or you're connected to people of importance to at least seek help from someone who can help the situation. What then happens to those who knows nobody of importance to call and have not enough money to pay their way through, when then becomes of them, should they keep on being oppressed and maltreated by the so called high and mighty feeling like gods who are untouchable. As normal as this sounds, this actions of inequality in judgment has a lot of disadvantage.

Disadvantage of inequality

1. Depression

No jokes it's truly disheartened and frustrating, when you know things are going wrong but you can't do much, even the little efforts put is almost like nothing because the opposition is a more powerful one. When you hear things like, I'll do this to you and you can't do anything about that. Or words like I run this place and you know deep down that this is true because of the past Works of such person. It has lead many to depression, widows having no one to fight for their rightful properties which have been seized by the husbands family, the poor who are being extorted more from. Its crazy indeed.

2. Suicide

Of course anything having the potentials of causing depression has the potentials of causing suicides attempt. Especially when such unjust occurrences happens repeatedly and it looks like they lose the battles every time, when then would things get right. Maybe its a lecturer who is refusing to give you a good score out of his selfish reason, and the school system can speak for you or help you out, now young people get easily frustrated and might considered suicide as an option, which is very wrong, in fact more than ever such a student need to live and be successful, that is the best revenge.

3. Increased Crime Rate

Why not, when people get to grow up knowing that the society wouldn't stand for the weak, if you are calm without any form of power then everyone is ready to prey on you without pity, it's only natural that such person seek out his own way and that's by acquiring powers for themselves. Not everyone would follow the right route to getting respected, not everyone would follow the right path to success and getting power, most of them would go through the short route and that would lead to more crimes and more unrest in the society at large.

Way Out To Solving This Inequality And Injustice

Transparency In Operations

As much as we know there are unjust in the society, we all won't come openly to say that a bad system would prevail, we would openly push for good, but when we're involved we seek to manipulate it to our favour, but when the system is transparent, where everything actions taken can be accounted for and not just some things can be swept under the carpet. When a complaint is filed or brought to book, even against a strong opposition, all officers needs to know the importance of going by the book and seeing justice prevail.

Because everyone learns eventually, it might not be easy at first to get everyone to act right, but one good to another right judgement, people eventually would see that there are some changes are being made. Over time we would begin to act accordingly as we have learnt the system is a respecter of no man.

For good to win, it begins with you and I, if you are opportuned to be in authority tomorrow, would you uphold equality and justice or would you cut corners too as long as it serves and suits you, then don't forget, someday another would be in authority, do you want them to cut corners too, especially if it would be against you or then you'll hope justice previal. Its good to be good, it's better to stay good.

Thanks For Reading.

It is well, corruption is really part of our existence and I don't think it is going anywhere, except Jesus comes 😑. There as been times when I only received attention based on what I had to offer, or where I came from and there has been times also when I have been denied, set aside because of where I came from, no value they say. Like you said I was really sad and vulnerable...thank God for HOPE.

I am agree with you,Justice begins with us.Everyone should be equal before the bar of justice.Injusticeness is the major cause of prevailing such crimes and leads people towards depression and suicide. I pray we can get that kind of law which treats everyone equally.

Hmmm I haven't been oppressed before and I don't wish to though I have seen so many bad things that makes me think of how life is but not to the extent of depression Because once depression enters am sure suicide will be the next thing and that is the end of someone's life

This is really a great problem to the people who are oppressed and cannot find someone or an agency to help them and make actions on their behalf. Yes, it will lead to depression and worse suicidal and the next generation would be the same not until someone steps up to fight for their rights.

Love yourself, love others genuinely. When in a position of authority, when love prevails you will act in accordance to God's will for your life.
