2 Meaning of arbitrariness

We use the word despotism all too often in our language when we want to indicate that someone has acted or acts in a way opposite to justice, i.e. with injustice, attempting against the reason or laws in force and totally dominated by his will or his whim. It is an arbitrariness that the police stopped them without even asking them to identify. The arbitrariness of your boss has no limits can not make you work all weekend and not pay you for it.
Among various synonyms presenting this concept, without a doubt, stands of injustice that just allows us to indicate the absence or the absence of Justice in a behavior, an event, fact or power.
On the contrary, i.e., the concept that is directly opposed to the arbitrariness is justice. Justice is regarded as a virtue from which it is possible to give to each what it belongs or deserves. It means to act with fairness, moved by equality and reason.
It should be noted that what is justice and what isn't is closely linked with the values proposed and sustained in the society and also by the beliefs of each individual, i.e., that there is a social component and also one staff in determining what is fair and what is not.
Then, when it is granted to each person what it deserves by law or natural law you will be incurring an arbitrariness, injustice and for case, who is the subject of the same may claim to whom it may concern a redress, either the withdrawal, according to the case.
There is what is known as a judiciary which is the body that means in the resolution of the mentioned cases of injustice in countries. A court, a judge, are the authorities responsible and prepared so that they may determine the presence or absence of an injustice and if so which provided the corresponding punishment.

3. Definition of arbitrariness

What is called arbitrary?

The notion of arbitrariness is based on the concept of coercive IE everything what is arbitrary is irrevocable and inescapable. I.e. something that is imposed with the value of law with caps to the point such that no one can escape it.
In help me Freud have spoken several times using this notion in two basic ways:
On the one hand, arbitrariness put into play when a person is imposed coercively on another, or imposes its whims as if it were a universal law.
On the other hand: when a supernatural or foreign force to a given subject is imposed to a group of people. Such as death, fate, as supernatural forces, the imposition of social institutions and ideologies as foreign arbitrary impositions to a subject.
But we can also consider that certain part of the psychology of a person can be truly a supernatural and external power to the ego of that person. In this sense we would have to say that certain aspect of psychic conflict may be arbitrary in a subject, for example, the symptom of the kleptomania is outside the person, since the Kleptomaniac is not recognized as a who "do that" but is based on an invisible force that drives him to act in this or that way.
But we can also give another nuance of arbitrariness; for example, when one assimilates an unfavorable fact of the reality of how paranoid i.e. originating from an intent against one or when a person assumes a destiny written and immutable, so much reality as the destination are elevated to the provided with the condition of arbitrariness and therefore considered arbitrary powers.
I.e. arbitrariness does not respect boundaries, wills or individuality. Nor is it subject to time. Arbitrariness always requires an instant landmark, so contrary to the arbitrariness is basically the respect to each other.
The person subjected to arbitrary treatment. either that it suffers from the arbitrary exercise of power over her, always remains on the edge of the condition of helplessness and distress.
Violence in all its forms is due to one such arbitrariness, but also fear, hatred, resentment and nuisance due to arbitrariness, both when they are directed against another person as it moves towards itself.
Finally, let's say also that education in its role of transmitting social mandates can be reduced to the arbitrary, when it is based, the imposition of content regardless of the aspirations and curiosities of the student, becoming a sort of training as a whole of knowledge and arbitrary values, since they do not take into account the subject who is imposed, in its nature, or his will.
It is a broad concept and that it has innumerable consequences, Rousseau for instance, said beyond the 18th century that the first person he fenced a lot and said: this is mine, he founded the private property; which might be as a source of the arbitrary, since the planet itself, is not an individual but all and none at the same time.
In the history of mankind could say even that when the law replaces the natural right, establishing the arbitrary rule.

We could define three planes of the arbitrary.

What really is arbitrary; What is elevated to the status of universal law, and that without being arbitrary is seen as such.
In the foreground we would have to include everything that has to do with accidents, death, destiny, etc. But, as none of these contingent factors have the intention to exercise its power arbitrarily on us, we would have to consider that as much as it sole it is taken as arbitrary they aren't more than metaphorically speaking.
The second plane, we find any kind of thing that is raised to the status of universal law, fair or unfair, beneficial or not, is arbitrary since it is exerted on all without worrying about the particularities. The famous phrase "you pay just for sinner" is an example of this type of arbitrariness, which by the way, is the same arbitrariness.
And the third level, is what we call, paranoid, of the exterior or interior perception one. Everything we do not understand or that is not us family for example is considered paranoicamente as if it were a power against one. A symptom for example, is not imposed because you have an intent against our but us bullying and requires us to obey its mandate coercively by that is seen as an exercise of discretion. The sayings by anyone, repeated by all; (what you talk about in help me during a full week) are otherwise arbitrary impositions that are naturalized because they belong to the familiarity of everyday life.
Later we will continue working this notion to build your concept, but any kind of doubts, criticisms or comments are welcome, and can avail of our e-mail readers.
