a part of the story of this piece, justice, includes of course the period of time the series itself covers. the series began the tuesday after 9-11. this timing may be pure coincidence as my own direction without 9-11 was towards this set. perhaps it is all a part of some strange attractor event. justice itself is a piece which may address the question of the boddhisattva and the political. for me spirituality just started to resonate to resemble the life which is engaged both with spirit and creation and society. also, in 2000 i witnessed what to me as well as many other observers seemed to resemble a theft or type of coup so our antennas were already at alert. there was a clear design to the possible threads which connect many events and turns through these past 8 years. clear lines of logic connect pnac to 9-11 to the iraq war and the patriot act and bill o'reilly. i throw him in partly for comic relief but partly because of his apparent defense of the patriot act through a blatantly false accusation about the possible years of obama. he threw the patriot act on to the end of a list of liberal infraction - right wing talking points. this is also a way to connect the media in to the whole knot which has become the state control mechanism. o'reilly will now play the part of bad boy patriot to the same degree of absurdity he kissed the neo-con behind. there is no end to the depths of denial in response to such accusations yet the point i am trying to make about media and total propaganda still stands.
the image of justice is as balanced scales blinded. with this in mind we have an idea how to proceed in our attempt to model this ideal of justice. we feel that in this current world dynamic there is less justice than our ideals would require. there are also clear violations and continued attempts to usurp legal traditions and systems of laws. part of this again is the total propaganda campaign where citizens must acquiesce. total belief systems limited by limited access to information. america exists outside these very restrictive demands of totalitarian systems and this is one temporal secular interpretation of the meaning of justice which informs the declaration and constitution of the united states.
