Abstract

"Two models of Justice/justice have been represented in the book. The first vertical one, is founded on Authority/Punishment: whether in the religious form of “fate” – “That sky owns us all” (Duli) – or whether in various cultural forms, from those in which the “disenchantment” of modernity hasn’t yet begun, to those in which personal responsibility remains within the vertical system of state/institutions/individuals-subjects. The second one instead is horizontal: the “horizontal freedom”, justice among equals. In order to give substance, through the issue of rights, to the construction process of justice the question “justice: how?” and the further questions deriving from it – “who needs justice?”, “justice for whom?”, “justice how now? Justice how after now?” – seem to indicate a path, which engages all our individual and collective resources, and gathers all our needs for rights (individual rights and rights of the people, which so often in history incorporated individual rights). The initial suggestion by Vladimir Perić that justice lies in the same condition as democracy, i.e., they are both produced by majorities against minorities (as the several texts focusing on the plight of minorities prove – Zeeba, Querin, and others), can therefore provide the basis for a new attempt to rethink the issue of democracy, as far as a change in the form of democracy means a change in the form of justice. This is an ancient and difficult issue, that was already raised by the fathers of democracy, but in the texts of these young people, in their experiences, worries, anxieties for change, it acquires a new and urging actuality.
