Is the Root of Social Justice in Self-Improvement of the Human Beings?

The human being is always involved with self-involvement inside. The human being has an internal war, because of the main forces of wisdom, anger, desires and imagination. Until death, the human being is involved with an internal war.

It is narrated that, Seyyed ibn Tawoos had been offered the position of chief judge and he said: In all my life I have not been able to judge one dispute and end it and establish peace; how can I accept the post of chief judge and establish peace between the human beings? Seyyed (RA) said: First, do self-development; the one who is not able to do so, how can he improve others? In another words, the one who cannot establish justice inside himself/herself, how can he/she invite the society to justice and establish justice in that society [1]?
