Crime is not indivdualistic

February 7, 2015

(A) crime is not committed only against the victim but primarily against the community whose law is violated.

Telford Taylor, New York Times Magazine, quoted in Hannah Arendt, Eichmann in Jerusalem, Penguin: 1994, p.261

Likewise, a breach of love for neighbour is a breach of the law of God. Justice is not served merely by doing justice for the former without the latter.
