First and foremost, judges are there to aid in the protection of individual rights and freedoms. All of this is quite straightforward.

What is not as forthright is the extent of inevitable political influence on the judiciary, even as the judiciary’s unmistakable vulnerability regarding the other two branches remains quite clear.

The judicial system is clearly the weaker of the three branches and as such many a time unable to defend itself against a legislative or executive onslaught.
