(Well, enemies of about a third of the people. But that's enough, I tell you !)
If only those unaccountable judges would make decisions based on facts, like the actual value of the cosmological constant, there would be no problems. But they will insist on making decisions based on opinions, and that's where the wheels come off, as there are other opinions available, even within the ranks of the judiciary.
Out in the wider world, there are evidently people like yourself around, who crave interesting times. But sometimes, the dragons are just windmills. But if you've not been around long enuf to know what a windmill looks like close up, mistakes can be made.
