The danger posed when the rights and liberties of the opposition are assaulted, is that oppositions change and that assault will eventually be applied to you.

The same is true when political power is bestowed disproportionately to the party in power. Those same rights and power will be in the hands of the opposition at the next political turn.

When you propose a legislative solution you need to picture that power being in the hands of your worst nightmare. This is why separation of power is so critical. This is also why the staffing of the courts is so critical; because court decisions and precedents take so long to reverse.

This is also why legislation should be the last option for social change.
