Sci-Fi Reality

I'm currently reading "Children of Dune", the third book in Dune Chronicles. Saw this quote and liked it very much...

"You did right! Your judgments cannot be based on any such foolish abstract as that Atreides notion of equality. That's what kept you sleepless, not Paymon's death. You made a good decision! He was another dangerous tool. You acted to maintain order in your society. Now there's a good reason for judgments, not this justice nonsense! There's no such thing as equal justice anywhere. It's unsettling to a society when you try to achieve such a false balance."
The Baron Harkonnen to Alia the Regent
It's very familiar, isn't it? I can imagine Cheney saying this to Bush.
