These pages will not be dealing in wishful thinking. You will be given documented, down to earth examples about the functionality of the system.

This means, however, to keep a clear sight on the conditions prevailing. One among these conditions to consider are the peculiarities of public representation of information, including the mechanisms of media.

Public estimation will nourish from the usually only poor, respective restricted facts available, and the few facts given will be cocooned by the rules of the trade. As a result, anti-constitutional undercurrent may remain hidden.

If considering the functionality of a system not a failure in a single case is questionable. Matters of importance are the inside structural processes in respect of the task to be performed combined with the ability of self-correction.

One of the difficulties in this is not being able to look into the heads of the persons in question. However, since the yardstick is the set framework of constitution and laws the consequence is then the approach vice versa to research the details of the results obtained.

These pages originally started off from national experience. Nevertheless that may be helpful to get to understand the systems including malpractice as such. Otherwise you may skip some pages.

According to the constitution the top of judicature is the Federal Court (Germany: Bundesverfassungsgericht).

As mentioned one of its superior tasks is to enforce constitutional rights respective conditions, especially within the judicial system.

The judicial system of Germany represents itself in the public generally as a fair and modern system. At a closer look this glamour reveals however profound cracks.

Searching for the reasons one comes to the courts, namely the Federal Court itself. Going further one finds, that judges are put into power upon questionable criteria - as well as questionable mechanisms, and the result is not always supporting the necessary ethics. Thus theory and self-description mismatch with the real conditions.
