1:What's morality?

Aristotle. The Nicomachean Ethics. Filiquarian, 2007. Print
Virtue, then, is a state of character concerned with choice, lying in a mean, ie the mean relative to us, this being determined by a rational principle, and by that principle by which the man of practical wisdom would determine it.‎

Plato.The Republic of Plato .Macmillan And CO,1908.Print
Then good language and good harmony and grace and good rhythm all depend upon a good nature,by which I do not mean that silliness which by courtesy we call goodnature,but a mind that is really well and nobly constituted in its moral character.

2:what is moral justice?

Ann Coulter.Slander, Liberal Lies About the American Right .Crown Publishers, 2002.p.196.
If there were a modern Spanish Inquisition in America today, it wouldn't be Bob Jones rounding up Catholics. It would be liberals rounding up right-wingers and putting them on trial for hate crimes. The liberal Torquemadas would be smug and angry and self-righteous. And when they were done, they would proudly announce they had finally banished intolerance.

Derek Edyvane."What is the Point of a Public Morality?"POLITICAL STUDIES: 60.1(2012):147-162. Web. 28 Jun.2011.
In stark contrast to the symmetry thesis, the suggestion here is that justice served (and fear calmed) is often enough hope disappointed.

3:What's the principle for moral justice?

Gideon Rosen."Might Kantian Contractualism Be The Supreme Principle Of Morality?" Ratio 22. 1( 2009) , 78–97.Blackwell Publishing Ltd .Web.21.Jan. 2009.

Jonathan Haidt and Jesse Graham."When Morality Opposes Justice: Conservatives Have Moral Intuitions that Liberals may not Recognize"Social Justice Research, 2007.
If conservative morality goes far beyond justice, then it may often happen that moral emotions and intuitions that are not related to justice can oppose moral emotions and intuitions that are.
