And, of course, there would have to be a consensus of what is wrong in the first place as a basis as well - also impossible. What's left is the nearest approximation of the current notion of what constitutes justice within the given system of laws. Which sometimes also can result in revenge - but that'll never really solve any problems.
That's because I used punishment to argue that justice can never be achieved.
