“Justice is always violent to the party offending, for every man is innocent in his own eyes.”– Daniel Defoe
Another week, another week closer to the justice of democracy?
As many readers know, I often make significant effort to use this space highlight the words of people we have not heard enough. The wise words of women and people of color. There are billions of quotes from motivational speakers and old dead white dudes. And those quotes have plenty of wisdom. But I’m always looking to bring a fresh perspective – perhaps one that’s not heard enough.
But this week, as I try to understand these people I respect, I went back to an old dead white dude. I know that many people I disagree with, people whom I respect, will more easily listen to a white guy. And that’s why I lend my voice here – I have absolutely privilege and it’s my task to use it for myself – and for people that do not.
Justice is always violent for the part offending. Every man is innocent in his own eyes. That’s why justice is so important! Every man innocent in their own eyes must be shown the light.
There are standards. Standards in running a country, standards in running a business. Justice is imperative, as is the administration of justice.
It takes a certain amount of audacity and never-quit to start and successfully run a business. This is my common ground with you. You have information sources you trust, and I have information sources I trust. There is overlap, but that overlap is not complete.
We often believe what we want to hear. That’s just human nature.
This week, as every week for five years, we’re faced with information sources that continue to diverge in their messaging.
But in the end, we must have a bedrock that we trust for justice to be served, or nothing is trustworthy.
(I hear the conspiracy theorists giggle in glee: “you thought anything was trustworthy?!?!?”)
Yes, I believe the Earth is roughly a sphere. Do we agree on that?
Finding that common ground for justice, living up to it and administering it is the foundation for any organization that enforces rules. I think of the Masters Racing Series, based in the UK, as a foundation for justice in historic motorsports.
Justice: An Interfanatic Quality
We have to have a common ground from which to work. That’s how any transaction works – business or simple fairness.
Otherwise, how do we measure justice against injustice?
We work hard to ensure our customers get what they pay for – oftentimes more. But in the end, when we do work, we have to be compensated justly. We want our customers to be happy, so we work for that. And our customers appreciate us to keep coming back.
Masters Historic Racing – Administrators of Justice
Some years ago, Masters Historic Racing requested help with their digital footprint. Knowing Ron Maydon as I do, I jumped at the chance! He’s a great businessman. A successful one that knows justice and value. And we have a common love for historic cars.
“Years on, and Masters Racing Series is a continued success. Because [Maydon] knew how to handle justice, and he brings that to his business.”
He was building the Masters Racing Series, a “casual,” gentleman’s sporting competition series. As with all competition, its administrators must clearly lay out justice.
As a successful entrepreneur, he understood that business justice – fairness – comes from treating your customers right, and their response in kind.
Years on, and his experiment is a continued success. Because he knew how to handle justice, and he brings that to his business at Masters Racing Series.

Justice is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I remember looking out upon a gray day, and as the sun broke through the clouds outside my window, a beautiful array of color spread before mine eyes, reminding me that there was still more beauty in the world.
