Forgiveness in Politics and its Relation with Justice: Reviewing an Axiological Debate

Abstract:
Politics, a cognitive behaviour, with its phenomenal spectrum is believed to be elementary for social formation. Despite its capacities politics spontaneously and almost innately patronised the exercise of power in every stage of human relations from interpersonal to international and subversively contributed to the darkest part of history with narratives of human sufferings.
This article identifies the loose ends of the power narrative through the contrivance of an ethical archetype of Political Forgiveness. The didactic paradigm of forgiveness is pitted against Realism which has ever remained triumphant spoiling the innate dark sides of human nature. It might, however, seem merely an academic thought practice but this article has adequately identified slippages where humanity prevailed over crude power through predicaments with congruent contextuality of philosophical logic and arguments based on regular political theories.
Besides the ideas of Hannah Arendt, Jacques Derrida this piece of writing incorporated the thoughts of John Rawls, Thomas Nagel, Charles Beitz and others in prioritising the notion of cooperation and forgiveness while weighing the chances of Cosmopolitanism in global politics. This is an attempt to challenge the idea of global justice in identifying the paradoxes of Realpolitik while exposing the back out of ethics from politics endangering a rudimentary element of social living.
