In "The Dosadi Experiment", Frank Herbert explores the concept of justice. In the guise of various characters and the aphorisms of various cultures, he has many insightful observations about the topic.
There was a quote that really struck me:
If you think of yourselves as helpless and ineffectual, it is certain the you will create a despotic government to be your master. The wise despot, therefore, maintains among his subjects a popular sense that they are helpless and ineffectual.
