A court of justice is the government’s power, set out in stone and marble, for the
people to respect and fear.
s such, this building adds significantly to the repression of the people in the region
where it stands. Further, because the forces of law and order are in intimate partnership
with the government’s tax gatherers, a law court gives their demands for money even
more force. The tax gathered in a region also increases thanks to the court. Finally, the
judges here have the power to use civil law to help the military’s authority and this
means that they can aid military recruitment, if only by the simple expedient of
sentencing wrongdoers to the ranks!
Social order is often more important than any amount of so-called liberty to the
smooth running of a nation. To modern eyes, a court of justice was surprisingly
parsimonious with the justice it dispensed: its purpose was to enforce laws that
protected the status quo, which did not have to be the same thing as “justice”.
Receiving justice depended more upon the social class of the defendant or plaintiff,
and less upon clever legal argument or the law itself. Even in countries that prided
themselves on “liberty”, such as Britain, the law courts were more interested in
protecting the rights of property rather than the rights of common and poor men.
