Whatever Happened to Justice?

Title: Whatever Happened to Justice?  | Author: Richard J. Maybury

Buy the same edition we read, here on Amazon

This book, like its forerunner, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?, is another great read!

Is majority consensus the way to go? (Is democracy even what America was founded on?). Laying a strong foundation, Maybury explains the differences between common law and political law and the severe problems that arise from the latter; such as having permission but not rights. (A little scary right; and guess which one of these America is functioning under today?). He also compares the American Revolution to the French Revolution and describes the roadblocks the Founding Fathers implemented into the Constitution to help slow judicial decay.

Again, this is a must read book! It is incredibly profound and incredibly relevant. Written in a style sixth graders could easily comprehend, this is a fitting and integral book for the youth of our times.


“Whatever Happened to Justice?” shows what’s gone wrong with America’s legal system and economy and how to fix it. It also contains lots of helpful hints for improving family relationships and for making families and classrooms run more smoothly. Discusses the difference between higher law and man-made law, and the connection between rational law and economic prosperity. “Whatever Happened to Justice?” introduces the Two Laws:
1) Do all you have agreed to do, and
2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property.

Can be used for courses in Law, Economics, Business, Finance, Government and History.


Discusses the laws governing abortion, drugs and alcohol.  The only section I would disagree with in the book is his segment on Capital Punishment which differs from the Bible.  

Hi! I’m Luisa and I’ve always been an avid reader and lover of books. Well… at least that is to say since I was about eight years old when my mom encouraged my sister and I to do a summer reading challenge. After that, I was always getting in trouble for not doing my chores, my school, or staying in the bathroom too long haha, because of a book! Read more about me here
