Last week, we aired a special episode that examined the concepts of law and justice, from the abstract principles of Plato's Athens to the concrete challenges of achieving justice in multicultural, modern America.

We asked you to define what justice means to you and to share your own experiences with the American justice system. Some of you were optimistic while many others are disillusioned.

Democracy IS the tyranny of the majority
and the US is not a democracy.
It is a Republuc which means the rule of
law over the rule of majority.
