Justice is an innately subjective concept, and thus there is can be no "real" justice. Ostensibly, however, the idea of justice is the negation and absence of what is "wrong". This renders the posited notion that justice makes things worse a contradiction in ideas.

So justice can not be defined due to the fact it's a matter of perception? If that is so... Than wouldn't just acts created by the government be more harm than good? Because our perception is not there's ...?

No. There is no objectively "just" act by the government. There is only a subjective justice, and this either exists or does not depending upon perspective. If one does not consider a government act to be "just" then it is not just, and therefor justice itself is not a problematic idea. "Justice" is an innately positive attribute ascribed to actions or situations we find to be "just"; although negative things may done in the name of this concept our perception of those things as negative is a judgement of the action and not of the potential attribute of justice.
