Yes, murder is justified. The reason for this is because the state of society has gone so far astray, it has forgotten what it’s all about.
The truth is that murder is justified in two separate ways. One is that society has gone astray by being a society in which we can’t control our own behavior. The second is that society has gone astray by being a society in which it has become impossible to restrain our own impulses.
One of the main reasons that society has gone astray is because the state has become so desperate for a scapegoat for any perceived crime against the “other.” To be frank, it’s too late for that. The problem with this is that society has abandoned any ability to distinguish between a crime that is truly wrong and a crime that just happened.
Society has abandoned its ability to distinguish between right and wrong, but the state still has to do it. The state can still attempt to justify, say, a crime to protect the greater good. The problem is that this is all arbitrary and subjective. There is no objective standard for what is or is not “right.
The problem is that this is also a legal problem. So while the police can say that a crime is justified, they cannot say that the crime was just. This leads to a whole slew of problems, not the least of which is that there are no objective standards for what is or is not just. So while a crime may be justified in the eyes of the court, it is still justifiable in the eyes of society.
But the problem is that it is not clear what society would think of a crime that is unjustifiable in our eyes. The problem is that there are no objective standards for what is or is not just.
So when people say “justified violence” in the media and on social media, they’re not using the same language that they’re using when they use the phrase “justified homicide.
The problem is that we have very little in the way of objective standards for what is or is not just. And this is why the media rarely uses the language of justifiable homicide. Because if we did, people would think that there was objective standard for what was or was not just.
One of the problems with the media and social media today is that people don’t feel the need to think carefully about the words they use. So when we hear people say, “The media isn’t just, like, a medium for the dissemination of ideas” or “It’s not just a way for people to express their feelings,” we don’t feel the need to think carefully about why that is or isn’t true.
There are a lot of false statements and accusations floating around these days. People making those sorts of accusations can be very hurtful. And it’s easy to forget that when they say something that is hurtful. Most of us don’t realize that the person they are accusing is a murderer and we are justifiably mad instead of justifiably angry.
