CDR: Justice and Fairness
by M.T. Bass
"But it's not FAIR!" cry five-year-olds world-wide.
Loosely translated into adult-speak, five-year-olds world-wide mean, "I WANT!" And as anyone who has reared children can attest, the protest is invariably rooted in coveting what some other five-year-old has and usually ends up involving some kind of bad behavior,
So, does anyone doubt that politicians who promise "fairness" are pandering to the Citizen's inner five-year-old child?
And what of Justice? Well, while the word 'fair' appears nowhere in the Declaration of Independence or in The Constitution, Justice is an essential part of the very mission statement for this country
The Citizen's Desk Reference is not a civics or a history book, a political manifesto or a manual for community organizing or an attempt to sway your vote left or right or otherwise. These books are like a software manual or the universal remote control operating instructions handbook that is stacked up or stuffed away somewhere particularly unhandy, especially when things aren't working right and you have finally reached the RTFM (“Read the [insert preferred expletive] Manual”) stress point so common with modern technology.
The Citizen's Desk Reference is presented as a series of ebooks which can be read in order or, like most manuals, randomly -- even haphazardly browsed according to the crisis or interest at hand.
