This article is about  Justice in the Afterlife.In various books dealing with the afterlife, the issue of what happens to a person in this situation is discussed.See, e.g.,  Canon,  Between Death and Life.  In reflecting on this situation it is apparent that a person is typically judged when he or she arrives in the afterlife, by the principle of  Reciprocity.The priinciple of  Reciprocity is defined as:treat antother as you would wish to be treated in similar circumstances.For example, if a person killed someone during his or her lifetime, then he or she would be asked, if you were in the shoes of the victim, would you want to be killed in the same way as happened here? If the person says yes, then a situation is set up where the perpetrator is himself killed.  If the person says no to the foregoing question, then, the person has judged himself.
