Justice is a cardinal virtue, which is to say that it is "pivotal", because it regulates all such relationships, and is sometimes deemed the most important of the cardinal virtues. This virtue safeguards especially the most fundamental rights, some of which are especially challenged today, such as the right to life from conception to natural death, and the right to freedom. Justice makes for peace and mutual trust and confidence among men in that it respects the rights of all.
