In doing this it goes against moral good and virtue. However, he also states that such behavior should not exist.
In addition, Aristotle thinks societies that are not governed under laws and justice are such that will soon suffer by the nature of men to do evil. Because If no constraints are possessed, it will tame man to become injustice. In the sense that they will seek bad unto their enemies. Therefore, injustice is not merely accepted in society.
