Kamma-phala suggests that injustice & justice are non sequiturs.
This is, at the very least, a close contender for "dumbest bullshit I have ever read on this forum".

The words "justice" and "injustice" have meaning and can describe realities. People can be justly or injustly accused, critized, praised, lauded, imprisoned, bestowed with honour or dishonour, receive gifts, be attacked, driven out of their homes, etc. etc... In many situations there are quite objective standards for these things.

LN - Do you have suttas where the Buddha taught that it is better to remain silent when there is injustice?
Yes, too bad you have not read the Kakacupama Sutta (or Saw). If one considers physical or verbal assault "injustice", then study the Buddha's advice.

That is about harsh treatment levelled against oneself. And it is directed at monks who were to train themselves to let go of everything in this world. I do not believe for a second that you would be able to act in line with it in a situation such as described there.

Greetings,

Unfortunately this topic has degenerated to the point where it is no longer worth the staff's effort trying to keep it going and on-track. There would be more time spent moderating and filtering the ad-hominem argumentation and unsubstantiated allegations than there would be potential benefit in continuing the discussion.

It appears that any reasonable and logical points that could be made have been made. Thank you to those who participated in this conversation in a constructive manner.

Metta,
Paul. :)
