To Err Is Human, To Defer Sublime
Courts are not the center of government's policy-making apparatus. In our system of representative government, it is the legislature that is primarily charged with making policy choices, the executive branch implements those choices, and the judicial branch is responsible for applying those choices in the resolution of individual disputes except when constitutional boundaries are crossed.
