The word judgment covers a series of logical types, not visible to the untrained or the careless.
- Divine judgment
That's the kind so many of us heard about as children: and since.
The problem is, though we may be surrounded by divine judgments, there's no reliable way to tell: we have no objectively verifiable examples.
- Religious judgment
Careful now: don't confuse this one with the first: make sure it's a god you hear, not some trickster shaman, or priest.
History gives us a slew of examples of religious judgments: women getting their tits cut off for witchcraft, babies thrown into the furnace, men broken, stoned, flayed, crucified ...
- Secular judgment
In modern times a state (a nation, a government, a secular coalition) takes over for the priests who had taken over for the gods. Egregious examples abound: Jews in German concentration camps, Japanese ethnics in American concentration camps ...
- Individual judgment
If individual judgments weren't so egregious maybe the religious and secular judgments would not have built such a head of steam.
Still: note: Individual judgments come with sentience. But even the mouse to which we attribute no sentience judges whether the cat can get it before it grabs the cheese. Institutional judgments are recent: and degenerating. Go to any bureaucracy, and watch the bureaucrats make judgments: the law says you're entitled to this and that? not unless the bureaucrat behaves.
