Upright: Justice, fairness, truth, cause and effect, law

Reversed: Unfairness, lack of accountability, dishonesty

Justice is demonstrated by the fight back against ad-blocking software by journalistic websites.  Ad blockers allow users to surf the Internet without being targeted by adverts, supposedly allowing greater freedom in the user’s behaviour and tastes.  However ad blockers not only restrict visible content forcing justice on the user by encouraging payment for content, but ad blockers are also rumoured to sell user data they collect to the highest bidder.  Justice is therefore a double edged sword.  Notice the website attempted to be accessed here is WIRED magazine, representing the justice mediated through different types of technology.
