Equality Versus Justice

Standard

It can be pretty simple to fathom what we all consider equality, but justice is a little stickier. Example: If I am handing out chocolate and you each get an ounce, that’s equal. But, if each of you has eaten chocolate in the last day and one of you has never tasted chocolate, is one ounce justice to that unfulfilled soul? I use chocolate as my example because you all know what living without it would mean for me, so I’m hoping you get the dire consequences of my analogy. Is justice equal?
