In South Africa, besides the guilty and survivors face-to-face admittance of
guilt and forgiveness, did the Truth and Reconciliation Commission also
arrange a small 'economic distribution' to those people who suffered at the
hands of others?  Can we ponder this in personal terms of the Millennium
Jubilee and wealthy nations' forgiveness of debt to debtor countries?  That
the world were so perfect we would all forgive each other our debts.

I second the motion from Guy Antoine to REFLECT, ADAPT, DEVELOP a model of
social and economic justice.
