# 41. They tend to Judge

Despite considerable progress in court efficiency with a high level of motivation achieved among court staff, inherent problems remain in the Judiciary itself.

One of the main issues is a cohort of older men who dropped out of the system in the 1980’s, 1990’s, in some cases the 1770’s and are now classified as “long term judiciary”. Each receives a weekly or monthly payment from the state. Some adopt a sad resigned air whereas others can be cranky. All have a tendency to isolate.

Judges blame the nature of the job and government policy however psychological studies have suggested that problems started in early childhood. For instance, none of them seem to have fathers.
