    The Ethics of Justice Without Illusions Book Summary: The founding premise of this book is that the nimbus of prestige, which once surrounded the idea of justice, has now been dimmed to such a degree that it is no longer sufficient to secure the possibility of a good conscience for those who undertake, in good faith, to make the world a better place in the spheres of politics and law. In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's. We were without strength, without illusions. This passage occurs in the sixth section of the book, toward the end of the prisoners' horrible run from Buna. It succinctly describes the prisoners' godless worldview, which holds survival to be the highest principle and all other morality to be meaningless.
