Bravely spoken.

And who will enforce these good things, and how? Surely not politicians or the judges they appoint.

Or do you seek a society in which everyone, without exception, will adhere to the reign of law, eschew privilege, etc., of their own volition?

To seek is to journey, to find is another matter all together.

A journey implies a destination with a travel plan.

Otherwise, it's just aimless wandering.

Yes that very true. If only Lenin and Marx had been a little less motivated. The world would be a far, far better place.

You are quite the riddle wrapped in mystery inside an enigma.

I think you may have unseated Viczinc as the reigning cyberspace philosopher here on amirite.

You are almost Shakespearian with your repartee. I mean I can almost smell the pipe tobacco and see the tweed jacket with elbow patches on you.

Your eloquence however seems to be 50 miles wide and 1/4" deep.

"Nothing else" Okay... well, I want a whole lot more that hasn't seemed to have fallen under the umbrella of justice, like clean air, decontaminated soil and waterways; secure infrastructure; overdue funding for law enforcement agencies' efforts that are essential against violent perpetrators. The list is long and not at all concerned with "privilege" issues, and abolishment of slavery will not end, if ever, for many decades to come - more likely, much longer.
