The Pathos of Politics (106) The Courts

The Courts

Courts are odd, in that they are part of the government, but, to judge fairly, must be to some extent independent of it. ~ American political scientist Phillips Shivley

Fairness is what justice really is. ~ SCOTUS Justice Potter Stewart

Courts adjudicate and determine remedy for property transgressions. If the property is a human body, violation of rights falls under criminal law. Otherwise, until a property violation is criminalized, disputes are a civil matter.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
