The Nature of Justice


~Themis for Zia's paperThemis!

This image apparently is the Angel of justice, and it has been shown in many departments of law. However, I am opposed to this picture because the sword is the symbol of violence. Social studies  show such  people  commit crimes.     Themis is armed with a sword and scalesLady Justice (LatinJustitia , the Roman goddess of Justice , the equivalent of the Greek goddess Nike ) is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems. [ 1 ] Modern penal systems do not agree with punishment. They suggest reform and rehabilitation. So we have to educate people, not punish them. The sword belonged to Nemesis,  who was responsible for revenge and retribution, but the periods of  revenge and barbarity were abolished a long time ago.

1- I object to the blindfold because justice has the ability to recognize who is guilty and who is not. Also, if Themis looks into the faces of people, she will understand better than if she is blindfolded.

2- I object to the blindfold because according to Wikipedia there are some coins   from Roman times that show that Justitia was not blindfolded.

3- Object to the blindfold, because atop the old bialy court house inLondon, a statue of lady justice stands without a blindfold, the court house brochures explain that “This is because lady justice was originally not blindfolded and because her “maidenly form” is supposed to guarantee her  impartiality which renders the blindfold redundant !!

4 I object to the fact that Lady  Justice is a goddess. Oranos is her father, so she represents honesty , purity, and equality. It is  not fair that she is blindfolded.

Besides, she is credited with wisdom and powerful foresight or prophecy, knowing unknown secrets, so that such specifics  discharge her from bias.

Now , the question is  this: For how long do we have to watch a silly goddess with a ridiculous blindfold? and for how long  do we  have to suffer the arbitrary creations of sculptors ? so let us start to challenge them.

Nick Auf der Maur lived here, on Tupper Street.

I have lived in Shaughnessy Village since 1973.

I have seen businesses come and go, including lots of restaurants, bookstores, churches, and, of course, an enormous number of people — many from ethnic nationalities.

I remember the Seville Theatre and the stores that used to exist on the north side of St. Catherine west of the Seville — the small restaurant at the corner, the Nut Shop which existed in the centre of the block, International News a door or two west, Cantor’s near the corner, and the Texan restaurant.

Mother’s Day Poem

She works like a humming bird building a nest
A bumblebee harvesting honey day and night
Bringing care and affection to her cherished children
Protecting them with the prowess of a proud lioness
The warmth of a polar bear paddling in frozen waters
With her cuddly cub on her strong shoulders
Her arms are the endless embrace of the sun
Comforting, encouraging, forever caring
Eternally and unconditionally
Loving


Hi, Guys,

I am posting this information to you to bring you up to date. Gold Fish is organizing a cycling group. It’s called the Atwater Cycling Group because the people interested in cycling will meet at Atwater Park (Cabot Square), which is at the corner of St. Catherine Street and Atwater Street. (See the photo below.) That is the Departure Place. The first tour will last between 2 and 4 hours and will be to the Summit of Mont-Royal, our beautiful mountain. The cyclists do not need to be in super physical condition because the path will be down Demaisonneuve Street by cycle path and then up Park Avenue, approaching the mountain summit the “easy” way. People should bring along food and drink because lunch will be on the Summit. This tour, which is the first in a series, will be on

on Friday, May 4, at 10 am

Cyclists should meet at the Atwater Park. Once at the summit, people will lunch together, and then the cyclists can go back to Atwater Park or continue on to other places. The people should be at least 18 years old. If your cycle is not in good shape, you can get a good tip from Gold Fish as to where to take your cycle to put it back in the pink.

Come on cyclists. Support The Atwater Cycling Group. Good exercise and companionship – and you will learn something about Montréal. After this tour to the Summit, there will be other tours to Jean Drapeau Park, and to Angrignon Park, and along the river. Make a suggestion. What park would you like to visit? Besides those parks, I’d also vote for Le Carre St-Louis, Parc la Fontaine, Demaisonneuve Park (Olympic Stadium and Le jardin botanique). What about you? Contact her at

cycling.group@Yahoo.com

and at the

Facebook account: “Cyc   Ling.”

And another announcement, stay tuned for the return of the Walking Tours. I am organizing several walking tours every week starting in the middle of May. There will be a Green Walking Tour, visiting the Greenhouse at Concordia University and continuing on to the Green Spaces in the Shaughnessy Village: the Greening of Mackay Street being a point along the way – hopefully the new planters will have been completed before our tour takes place; then to the gardens at the Grey Nun’s Mother House at the corner of Guy Street and René-Levesque Boulevard; and then the Sculpture Park across Rene-Levesque from the Canadian Centre for Architecture;

Sculpture Park across the Street from the CCA

and then the napkin-sized park called Parc Shaughnessy on Tupper Street; and finally the Atwater Park (Cabot Square), where we can perhaps meet the Atwater Cycling Group returning to the Park. At that point there may be attractions in the park: activities like horseshoes, badminton, frizbee jousts, and so on. Join us on this Green Walk. There will be other walks during the week to look at architecture and the interiors of places of interest in Shaughnessy Village. Stay tuned, also, for the exact times and days.

Cheers,

Alex


I am new here. I am going to write about political issues, English language teaching as well as  sports.

Now , the question is  this: until what time do we have to watch an   innocent goddess? with a ridiculous blindfold? and until what time do we  have to suffer the arbitrary creations of sculptors ? so let us start to challenge them.
