“Justice consists not in being neutral between right or wrong, but in finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong.”

-Theodore Roosevelt-

Written by: Nurlaili Azizah (071112001)

Quote above was stated by Theodore Roosevelt, one of the US President. He was 26th president of  US. He was born in New York on October 27th 1858. He served two terms as the US President in 1901 to 1909. He became US president when he was still 42 years. Indeed, he was the youngest one. He was a republican. As president, he highly concerned in upholding justice.  He was also a mediator in soluting conflict between employer groups and laborers in US.

I chose those quote because it is so relevant with this third weekly topic, that is American Fundamental Values. As we know, US highly appreciates and upholds humanity values as its fundamental values , for instance the justice. From the quote above, we could know that Roosevelt underlined that justice is not about being neutral between right or wrong, more than it, justice is about fighting against the wrong.
I personally agree with those quote. Why? Same with Roosevelt statement, I think that justice is about upholding the truth indiscrimately. Everyone has a right in getting justice equally without distinguished by ethnic, race, occupation, and even religion. The poor or the rich, the young and the old, all of them have to get justice indiscrimately. As we know, since born, humans have been equipped with the rights, one of them is right in getting justice. Therefore, we have to appreciate and run it well. In our beloved country, Indonesia, justice is still a scarce thing. Many poor people do not get justice, they are severely punished because of little bit mistakes they done. In other side, corruptors and beaucreats who harm the state by billions of dollar are punished lightly. That is truly ironic one.

Government, the justice enforcers, and all citizen must rectify this condition immediately. If not, Indonesia is going to be crushed gradually.

So, let’s collaborate to uphold the justice!
