A description of business-as-usual:
78. Jesus offers a justice other than that of the world, so often marred by petty interests and manipulated in various ways. Experience shows how easy it is to become mired in corruption, ensnared in the daily politics of quid pro quo, where everything becomes business. How many people suffer injustice, standing by powerlessly while others divvy up the good things of this life. Some give up fighting for real justice and opt to follow in the train of the winners. This has nothing to do with the hunger and thirst for justice that Jesus praises.
Part of this problem is the “justice” of personal affront. Sexual advances are rebuffed. Employees talk back. The boss throws a tantrum because an ill-conceived plan failed. Heads roll, therefore. It’s not justice; it’s about a personal vengeance.
