The Stability of Justice
Keywords:Justice, Stability, Human Rights, Democracy, Tyranny
The stability of justice can be discussed in two parts. The first part centers around defining tyranny as an unjust form of government by examining the Peisistratid tyranny. It then demonstrates how democracy and human rights are stable, idealized forms of governmental justice. The second part builds upon the definitions from the first part and inspects how both Solon and Cleisthenes used the ideal of justice in their reforms. Additionally, the paper observes how that same essence of justice in governance is echoed by the ancient reforms in modern democracy and human rights.
