As far as everybody was concerned, Theodore Merlin's stomachache was a case of minor ailment, an indigestion, a bloated stomach, after having savored two mangoes out of three received as gifts from his first cousin. For the patient, his days were numbered. He had an intuition: he strongly believed that he had been inoculated with the most potent poison in the world, under the cover of voodoo. He was right. However, before dying, he made his closed friend and cousin-in-law, a lawyer, swear to avenge his death within the boundaries of laws.

This story, “Voodoo, within the boundaries of the Laws” represents a realistic attempt to dramatize the meaning of justice, as an application of rationality, righteousness, equitableness, and moral orientation to social intercourse, as the same qualities do wonders in mathematical and logical disciplines, as well as in experimental and social sciences. Justice predicates that, even if reality has shown clearly that God or Nature hasn’t necessarily created all men and women equal, however, people, in principle, should remain equal under the law. Although people with wealth and power try to step on such belief and turn justice in their favor, we should maintain that premise should express the truth; for justice expresses the desire to make social intercourse right. In other words,, each of us has equal right to live, to own properties, to entertain dreams and aspirations, to look for happiness, to acquire knowledge... This explains the reason why the scale symbolizes justice. Indeed, my right as a person and a member of society should balance out someone else’s right. If such equation does not occur this way, then, we will not have justice. No one should interfere with such existential basics, above all with a view to harming, to killing, to preventing someone from reaching his goals. Then, justice expresses the rigorous respect for the individuals’ right.


Traditions are types of behavior which belong to the past, which are kept and actualized by us regardless. And to maintain them alive, we msut impose them through violence, persuasion and all kinds of insidious ways. Why? We belong to the present, and our traditions thrust their roots to the depths of past. We have immediate and actual needs; traditions respond to outmoded needs.
