Moldbug explains the Supreme Court concisely. We like to think we're ruled by the law, but:

All governments are governments of men. If final decisions are taken by a council of nine, these nine are the nine who rule. Whether you call them a court, a junta or a politburo is irrelevant.

(HT: Arnold Kling.)
