Justice as beauty

I have always thought that justice is beauty as applied to human relations. When we see an innocent person acquitted, we exclaim, “What a fair judgment!” All fair dealings between man and man are beautiful, and all unfair dealings are ugly. And any writings that are strong enough to evoke the sense of justice dormant in our minds are beautiful.
