What is Justice? What is Law?

What is justice? Interesting question.
According to many arguments within political philosophy justice is regarded as being the security of equality and social harmony.

But justice is often tied in with state law so what then is the law?

 

State law is the security of justice; which as we just said is often meant to mean the security of equality and social harmony. Thus state law is the security of the seucrity of equality and social harmony.

 

Now if we were to explain this in a formulaic manner then taking justice to be J, law to be L, security as S, equality as E and H to represent social harmony then the question what is justice can be answered as follows J=S(E+SH).

Furthermore the subsequent question what is state law would now beomce L=S(J)=S(S(E+H))

when simplified becomes L=S²(E+H)

 

I know I have too much time on my hands.
