The concepts of law and justice often go together, but not always as one would imagine in a speculative world. How do these concepts connect or conflict depending upon the setting of the story? Let's look at the influences that affect how these ideas are upheld or subverted when technology, mass communication, or alien civilizations are either added or removed. And what role do ideals such as truth, or even revenge, play when characters come into conflict? What dangers does an author have to navigate when writing about sensitive topics?
