How to use "Un-justly" in context?

When the term "un-just" comes to mind, it often conjures up images of something that is unfair and unpunished. In reality, though, the act of unjustly harming others can be a very subtle form of abuse. By definition, an act of injustice is "a wrongful or unmerited advantage or profit gained by someone at the expense of someone else." This definition stresses the importance of fairness, which is certainly important, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

One of the most insidious forms of injustice is when someone is left feeling powerless and humiliated.
