Justice… is the ligament which hooks civilized beings and civilized nations together

I noticed the quote above (A trimmed down version of the Daniel Webster quote below) on the DOJ building while walking to The Smithsonian this afternoon.  I couldn’t agree more and wonder how much of that ligament is left these days.

JUSTICE IS THE GREAT INTEREST OF MAN ON EARTH. IT IS THE LIGAMENT WHICH HOLDS CIVILIZED BEINGS AND CIVILIZED NATIONS TOGETHER. WHEREVER HER TEMPLE STANDS, THERE IS A FOUNDATION FOR SOCIAL SECURITY, GENERAL HAPPINESS, AND THE IMPROVEMENT AND PROGRESS OF OUR RACE – Daniel Webster
