Read from July 23 to September 08, 2012

An eerily gripping and some-what prophetic tale of a judicial system so powerful and secretive that one does not even know it exists until they are arrested, and possibly never knowing what for. In this world ignorance of one’s accusations does not make them innocent, and just because one is not in prison does not mean they are free. This is the story of one man’s introduction to this court and his struggle to overcome or at least come to grips with his accusation, which has never been illuminated for him. He is soon to understand that this court is as vain and pompous as it is secretive, and that influence and connections count for more than any testimony or evidence he could ever hope to present. Under the seemingly omnipresent, omniscient eye of this court, he will either die trying to defend his case, or die by the long arm of its henchmen.
