Systems analysis is the study of sets of interacting entities, including computer systems analysis. This field is closely related to requirements analysis or operations research. It is also "an explicit formal inquiry carried out to help someone (referred to as the decision maker) identify a better course of action and make a better decision than he might otherwise have made."
The terms analysis and synthesis come from Greek where they mean respectively "to take apart" and "to put together". These terms are in scientific disciplines from mathematics and logic to economics and psychology to denote similar investigative procedures. Analysis is defined as the procedure by which we break down an intellectual or substantial whole into parts. Synthesis is defined as the procedure by which we combine separate elements or components in order to form a coherent whole. Systems analysis researchers apply methodology to the analysis of systems involved to form an overall picture. System analysis is used in every field where there is a work of developing something. Analysis can also be defined as a series of components that perform organic function together
I've just set out to type this morning, not really sure where it's going – you're welcome to come along and “Critique”.
Two things happened last evening, that set me in the mood to analyze our Justice system.
I am “christian” only by the courtesy of those members of the church I attend, who haven't called me out on it yet. But, I was raised in a Methodist congregation, I now belong to a Methodist congregation, so I pass for Moreorlessa Methodist. ( and that in itself is kind of a “Methodist” thing)
In actuality, I am a member of a strong community of faith, that just uses the term “methodist” as a kind of “Token” bookmark for where to look for us. ( Like your “address” is a starting point to look for you. ) As a community, we believe in the love of the universe, and the Justice of all things. When someone gets out the “Methodist” “Rulebook” and cries “Foul” we tend to pay enough attention to the person to unruffle feathers ( much like calming a crying and frightened child) and then those of us who were doing what we were doing in pursuit of the doctrine of “God as Love” go back to doing what we were doing. I admit, this does tend to ruffle and frighten some of the “younger” members, but the elders have a pretty good grasp of the situation. We tend and teach our children. We believe in US.
If you still need a rule book, you don't know what you're doing. If you still need things “put into words” you don't understand what you are feeling. We all (the elders) know what we mean when we use the term “Justice”. It is like unto the terms “Peace”, and “Harmony”, “balanced” and “Fair”
And, of course, “Maybe some day you'll join us, and the world can live as one” (Just Imagine)
Which, we further understand, is nonsense, because wanting the world to live as MY “ONE” is precisely what causes all the strife in the first place. Most people have their own idea of what “ONE” is. Of who each and every “ONE” uniquely “IS”. And each and every “ONE” is uniquely equipped to decide which “ONE” he/she/it will “BE”. Each is a “Quantum of “Being” Each contains a “Quantum of “SELF”. That “Quantum of SELF” possesses a “Quantum of “Free Will”
The greatest “gift” of “The Universe”/God? /the collective un/sub conscious etc, etc. of course, IS “BEING”, and the universal Agape Love that sustains being. The second greatest gift is “Free Will”. Uniquely among all the animals of earth ( well, not really, but for the sake of argument) Human Beings have the capacity for “Free Will”. ( Our legal system doesn't even recognize “free will” in cats, for christ's sake- so waddya gonna do? —you work with the Data (gift) given)
I digress (step away) …..
Last night our church dedicated itself to a new “outreach” to bring the members of our sectarian community the “Good News” of their “free WiFi” connection to the “Cloud” and the availability of our “technicians” to get them “hooked up” ( It wasn't phrased EXACTLY like that, but you get the drift) We are inviting everyone (especially those homeless, poor and abandoned by society) to join us on Easter, for a free physical and spiritual recharging, with an emphasis on free “modem” checkups, to be certain that the equipment that was installed at birth is functioning and tuned to their own individual SELF adjusting Cloud “receiver”. This is not an “induction” or “indoctrination” it will simply be an education in tuning your own individual WiFi receiver (which you may or may not believe you have) so that you can question YOUR “Christ”* in HD and living color (* also known as “Jiminy Cricket”, conscience, clear still voice) once you get that hooked up and functioning, you may or may not choose to partake of our community of faith. You are invited.
We seek “Justice” ( Balance, Harmony, Peace, Love) but everyone has to go by their own GPS, so we're just offering “Tune Ups”, not instruction manuals.
So, last night I accepted a mission of faith.
I also got a call from a Lawyer who is willing to represent Mike. (Mike is a long story that some of you know, and I'm not going to elaborate on here. ) She is young and fresh and idealistic and Christian, and was contacted by the chairman of the local democrat party, with whom I've been conspiring to evict the republican officials involved in the “mike” saga, from their jobs. ( I'm nominally a republican, but some people piss me off)
Anyway, this dear creature, who sounds about twelve, will undoubtedly be able to “get Mike Off”. Which led me to reflect that once you get Lawyers involved, all prospects of “justice” vanish.
She will play by the Rules. The Rules set up by the very people who have persecuted Mike since last September. She will get them to leave Mike alone (Legally- I've already got them wishing they'd never started this piss fight- the local police want no part of it and wouldn't see Mike if he walked into the police station )
Mike wants “Justice”. Mike wants “Vindication”. Time's when he's done something wrong, he's admitted it. This time he didn't do anything wrong. Mike is one of those simple souls who still trusts the Justice system to dispense justice. I think we can all agree that what is daily dispensed from our “Law Enforcement Professionals” sure doesn't smell like “justice”.
And that's the problem. It is absurd to me that people think that they can arrive at “Justice” by torturing the meaning of “Laws”. Our legal system is simply a digital program, designed to give an approximation of “justice” in any situation . That “approximation MUST then be refined by a “Justice” and “12 persons good and true” to determine the actual shape of “Justice”.
It is Madness to have turned this system over to Law Enforcement Professionals (LEPers) and expect that the product will be “Justice”- Quite the opposite. Unguided “Law Enfocement” ALWAYS results in CHAOS. (eg. If you have an emergency requiring action in the next 30 seconds, and it takes you 3 minutes to read the instruction sheet......you may have a problem)
an unmonitored DIGITAL system ( eg Our system of Laws) will ALWAYS “crash”. QED.
Those who deny this tautology are in the position of large muscular high school football players arguing against the existence of calculus, from having taken and not understood a tenth grade algebra course. Large Muscular Teen agers can be an aggravation of the soul. (Cf Law Enforcement Professionals) Hence, the invention of “the Club” ( or more (or less) humanely, "Rat Hockey").
Anyway, I am presented with a Quandary about which I would like your advice. I'm not inclined to just let Ms.Deeds (the prosecutor) of Fairborn Municipal Court, get away with her misdeeds ( I swear you can't make this stuff up!) Yet I'm not sure I want to invest the time required to humiliate and disbar her. I want to do the Catauqua.
That said, I ask the help of any Graphic artists who might be reading this, in collaboration in a “Graphic Novel” detailing MsDeeds of Fairborn Municipal Court and her Misdeeds. Judge Beth Root is the presiding “justice” So we are left to explore her Mdeeds. We know that the Root of all Evil is Injustice, and the Root of all Injustice in Fairborn is MsDeeeds. What we have yet to determine is whether the Evil of Root is only Little MsDeeds or whether the Evil of Root lies in Larger Misdeeds. (Graphic Artists PM me for details- the court is Fairborn Municipal Court, Fairborn Ohio, the case is TRC1108700)
So, any critique would be appreciated. What I am trying to sort out for participation in the “Catauqua” are those who realize that law is just a “program” for the production of “Justice” and those who think that “Law Enforcement” is the formula for the production of “Justice “itself.
