From the Paper:

"According to Foucault, humans focus too much on finding our origins, what is perfect and universal. We look for justice in the best political order, but justice is not the same during all time periods. That is because justice is not universal, but based on power (Foucault Reader 5). This is true. Justice differs during time periods. It seems the more technological we become, the greater the power in fewer hands. This is not due to anything inherently bad in technology, however, but what is inherently bad in human nature. The holders of great technologies, earn the most money, and therefore have the most power, and also the ability to retain that power through the accumulation of greater technological advances."
