Judge I shall be

I reckon this is the most perfect position to be in life. Just sit in the office and waiting for people in trouble to come knocking. Then the judge will sit at the top of the bench and look down at everyone from the distance, totally innocent, calm and untarnished from the scuffles and mess in front of him. Better still, the judge should remain above and detach from the combatants. His role is simply to judge, dish out the punishment, who gets how many strokes, how much fines and how many years behind bars. Ideally a judge is best completely detached from earthly problems, and rightly he can remain blameless. For he is not involved, and has nothing to do with the problems people bring to him. In paradise, many in authority think and behave like they are judges. They may head ministries, corporations, administering big operating systems etc. And when trouble appears, they ride in in their 8 horse chariots and judge. Some will be fined, some whipped, some decapacitated. Then back they ride their chariots into the clouds to be near to god. Never mind if they are in charge of all the organisations, set missions, policies, directions, goals, systems, rules and regulations, they are blameless, like judges. Not involved. They are there to judge and punish. Even if they wake up late and turn up late is ok.

haha anonymous, my main points are in the last two paras. what i was trying to say is that many top honchos are above the laws and are untouchable. not their businesses when things go wrong.

the real judges are there by profession, to be neutral and uninterested.
