This means that the government is just perpetrating more injustices in the future through the approaches that the police and political elites in towns and in the cities adopt.
The only remedy of the vicious cycle of injustice in the society is by changing the approaches towards the users of the hard drugs where it is more accommodative and understanding than it is now.
b) According to Thrasymachus, the interests or the power of the powerful is manifested in the acts of justice in the modern society.
Looking at the issue of the war against drugs through his lens it is evident that the political leaders commit themselves in the war out of the interests that they hold (Plato. Some of the interests of the people may be institutional or personal.
However, the irony of the matter is that the police use the same approach repeatedly yet they anticipate a change in the results.
The approach that the government has about the creation of streets that are free from the drugs is unjust.On the contrary, it means that the status quo is good for the leaders since it provides them with another item on their political manifestos.The same politicians are known to cut deals with the big members in the drug trade.They may fight a faction of the drug dealer terrains in order to benefit the other drug leaders who like vultures will come and benefit from the devastations on the territories of their enemies.However, to the common person, the approach is perfect since it is seen as a forward step towards the cleaning up of the streets.Hurting the victims is seen as a move towards the reduction of the drug menace in the street too.However, this is just but a display of the power of the leaders.In the society, there are many contraptions of justice.The people that assume that they are acting in the interests of justice often represent other interests that are not related to justice in any way (Plato. This approach to justice means that the society’s definition of justice is not really representative of the real ideals of justice on the other hand, the justice as it is commonly known is a contraption and a vague mirage made to distort and camouflage the interests of the dominant powers.The approaches that the police use when dealing with the drug users and the peddlers are often seen to be brutal and inhuman in most of the instances.These approaches end up hurting the people that are supposed to be rehabilitated into better citizens.
