We do not have to convince judges or lawyers that maintaining the rule of law is necessary - they are already convinced. Instead we must convince ordinary citizens, those who are not lawyers or judges, that they sometimes must accept decisions that affect them adversely, and that may well be wrong. If they are wiling to do so, the rule of law has a chance. And as soon as one considers the alternatives, the need to work within the rule of law is obvious.
Justice Stephen Breyer,
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
