Justice is modeled after the intrinsic and evolutionary human understanding of fairness. It is then further defined by culture, history, time, and environment.

That fairness is intrinsic or that justice is fairness?

Well, I didn't actually say that justice is fairness, I said it was modeled after fairness.

Social Justice is usually a standard of the most probable accepted decisions of what is considered fair among the majority, or what has been decided as fair in written law.

Vigilante Justice is usually an individually defined standard of fairness.

Either way, yes, justice is built on human morality and beliefs.

No, It's based on how much money is in your wallet or who you know in the justice system. Don't think so, go to court with a public defender.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
