    Why do you need to personalize this? Justice is good. Don't you agree?

    I'm not the one personalizing justice...you are, in your arrogance.
    Justice simply IS. I'm neither arrogant enough to either dispense it, determine it nor rejoice in it.

    Looks like you'll say anything to avoid the question.

    Is justice good?

    Sounds like you're too scared of justice because you tried to assert justice, you would also be condemned.

    No. It's a relative concept.
    The concept of justice means a (relative) wrong was percieved...a state of suffering necessarily ensued prior. Righting this wrong entails more suffering for, no less, a temporary feeling of satisfaction. It's a zero-sum idea. Justice in the absolute is an illusion.

    Is there such thing as absolute truth?

    So if I say, "This statement is true," there are circumstances where that statement would not be true?

    Which has nothing to do with whether the statement "This statement is true" is true or false.

    So again I ask, is the phrase "This statement is true," ever wrong?

    So it's absolutely true that you are not wrong that there are no absolute truths?

    You just contradicted yourself.

    Why should I trust you, when you can't even make a consistent logical argument?
