"Just words": this phrase has two meanings, almost antithetical
to each other. "Just" refers to persons or principles interested in,
committed to, "justice" as well as "merely" or "only". History and
current events prove out these paradoxical definitions daily in
real/reel life: high-flown hopes written by our founders and
leaders into national and state law become mere palaver when
the specific stipulations are ignored, whether by intent (-politics,
anyone?) or ignorance.
Who cares? I ask seriously, not flippantly. Is our society a
joke, or do we actually have standards and reasonable
rules of law which we follow closely?
The answers are within our very selves.
