Business, Wisdom and Knowledge- 3

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch and do nothing.’’ – Einstein

Background

Government is the best actor and the synonymous of the state. Fair share and humanity for sustainability are the best practice of the responsible state. Unjust is a reason of conflict and violence. Here I am linking justice how it has been ignored, because of using insufficient wisdom while running the state mechanism. I have been writing since last two posts about wisdom and knowledge.  (Read previous posts State, Wisdom and Marginalisation  and Business, Wisdom and Materialisation

Plato’s justice

Plato is famous for idle state. He says ‘‘the purposes of Republic are to put forth a conception of the ‘just state’. According to Plato justice is “excess and deficiency of any kind are unjust…an unjust state fails to accomplish the functions of a state. These functions of the state include making possible the conditions under which everyone can feed, clothe and shelter themselves, as well as seek the Good.’’ [1]  

 Justice is clearly denied 

Adhikari died after his 11 months long unto death hunger strike demanding the government to arrest the murderers of his son.

There are lots of examples of justice is being denied in the world. Even a tyrant, killer or corrupt claim they are right. It is Hong Kong protest [2] or Wall Street occupies [3] or unemployed protest [4] in the western [5] streets, they all are seeking opportunities but state treats them as anarchist. There is no clear indicator of judgement who is actually doing badly. Justice is like small fishes for the big fish.

 It is worth mentioning a name of the victim Nanda Prasad Adhikari [6], from Nepal. ‘‘Nanda Prasad Adhikari was an ordinary Nepali citizen who became an icon of seeking justice against his son’s killing. Adhikari died after his 11 months long unto death hunger strike demanding the government to arrest the murderers of his son.’’ The representative of state- Supreme Court, government, political parties, and international agencies did finally nothing as they had enough time of 11 month to save his life. Peace icon Adhikari was died but left a big question and stain for all. I don’t think there is rule and law in Nepal to be a modern state but it was big challenge to all.

 Brad Adams, Asia director, Human Right Watch, gave his reaction on the death of Nanda Prasad that- ‘‘Nepali politicians should stop making empty promises’’ [7] I think, making statement are just ‘pulling the wool over the eyes of people’. Nanda Prasad Adhikari made the ultimate sacrifice in the pursuit of justice

At the end

The Adhikari couple (wife also accompanied on hunger strike with husband) symbolizes the thousands of people who demand justice. Adhikari and his demand were understood as a trouble by leaving impunity alive. This is not a single question of inefficiency of Nepal but also a big question to the world’s justice system because we believe and work in globalization. Here is the point state has lost the wisdom.
