The paradox of the Third Power.

(La paradoja del Tercer Poder.)

Definitely, I mean the judiciary.

One of the major kinks that may occur in a democracy is to make the political parties in the plenipotentiaries agents of popular sovereignty. They are necessary tools (perhaps essential) for the operation of the system and the pipeline of ideas, interests and will of the citizens. But in no case can replace them as subjects of that sovereignty. And no longer fulfill their function when they become tight interest groups, distant voters and the opinions they defend. And that is precisely what seems to be happening in Spain, almost without exception in the parliamentary range.

But I wanted to tell you about a paradox, however, is essential in a democracy. The executive and the legislature need to some extent the action of the parties, their choice and their control, such as channeling the will of the majority and plurality of real society. Without that partisan intervention policy would eventually be handled by shadow other real powers that exist in society and they are usually minor. Put the example you wish. Although, in a way, when political parties leave the realm of ideas to become mere factions or interest groups, the result is usually the same.

However, the judiciary has no need for political parties. Not necessary for election, or for operation, nor did they add nothing of democracy with his performance. The main role of the judiciary in the rule of law is to control the legality of acts of other powers and citizens in general. He has nor any representative role, or expected of him some great ideas to take the country down the path of good governance. Moreover, the further away it is from the action and the partisan strife more democratic will, because it must used primarily in which acts of government and the functioning of the legislative laws that regulate and Law in general correspond.

The absurd belief that the judiciary is more democratic because those who govern are elected by consensus or negotiation between political parties is an obvious fallacy nowadays that can only be explained by their interests in manipulating the third power. If they really want it to be more democratic appointment sufficient that the Spaniards we elected every 7 years (for example) in single constituency and open lists, 30 judges or magistrates, and then when there was a vacancy, candidates should proceed to compulsorily those elected by the people. And if, within one month there was no consensus, automatically occupy the one of them who had been elected with the most votes by citizens.

The paradox, then, is that the further the interests of the parties is the election of members of the General Council of the judiciary, more democratic judiciary will be. And what is true of the judiciary should apply to the Constitutional Court, although in this case, their aberrant origin is most logical choice for Congress and the Senate.

Until citizens get back that portion of sovereignty that we have been usurped by a decadent political parties and return to the third power independence from partisan interests, we are liable to lose our freedoms under totalitarian consensus of those who claim to represent, but they only represent their own ambitions or unmentionable minorities.
