Dr. King said, “There can be no justice without peace, and there can be no peace without justice…Justice is indivisible, and injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
“No justice, no peace.” Is this a threat? A call to violence? No. It is an acknowledgment that without justice, peace is illusory. There is no state of peace in a society that condones injustice. The victims of such injustice, though they may remain silent, do not live in peace.
@justinamash Corpus Juris Civilis was formed by Emperor Justinian in the Byzantine Empire. This law could be asked for by any defendent as it protected the whole of the empire, even though certain states had their own laws. Citizens being equal under the law defines a civilization and empire.
