Now that Restorative Justice
has raised her Gaian ecological purpose,
to restore multiculturing peace
polypathic Turquoise Eden,
how do you continue to justify
a win/lose Retributive Justice evolutionary philosophy
of law and moral order
as contributing to healthy
regeneratively revolutionary democracy?
Asked the ecosystemic Judge
of UnitingNations jurisdiction.
was never intended to be effective
where either victims
of re-engaging in cooperative
and hostile DisTrust
and restorative ReTrust.
So you argue
win/win regenerative assumptions
of natural/spiritual creatures
are not safely,
and not realistically, accessible
for all the healing dreams and purposes
endemic to our Gaian muse of Justice?
with healthy democratic peace;
how will continuing to primally rely on win/lose retribution,
where victims and a healthy society
are presumed to Win
by punishing criminals
and Loser scofflaws,
lead us toward this noble,
and globally multicultural, goal
of achieving healthy democratic peace
for all Earth's regenerative creatures?
is the State's weapon
to protect the Common Good
from further injustice,
a deterring threat;
not a tool
toward an actively remediating peace,
or public resonant health.
How do you respond
to peace therapeutic win/win possibilities
of multiculturally mediated dialogue
to bring together victim compassion
with wrongdoer remorse,
without hyperactive threat of criminalization;
As compared to current Retributive Justice outcomes,
imprisoned and exploited populations
of marginalized misfits,
Traditional patriarchal systems
do not over-invest
in democratic health
of our predative
raped and pillaged citizens,
as these are not well-established
in win/win cooperative investments.
I'm not sure
arguing for further patriarchal
competitive win/lose capital-investments
helps your justice through win/lose punishment
You invite the Court to question
whether anyone is capable of sufficient Trust
toward resiliently democratic peace,
internal as external,
to actively communicate egalitarian
healthy democratic choice-making,
Facing toward compassion,
facilitating win/win communication disciplines,
expanding ego-recentering non-violence
therapeutically mediating ecosystemic compassion.
Well, actually I invite the Court
you have already remade
your bicameral balancing mindbody,
so it doesn't really matter
how I would prefer to debate
toward some ultimately punishing
leftbrain dominant outcome.
