The interesting thing about the results of the
study is the emergence of subjectivity aspect of the actor who tries to stand
outside the established system that has been built by authoritarian political
power. That is, as one of the conclusions, if there is nonetheless an
interesting story from the Supreme Court's performance in this republic under
Suharto's regim, it is not
primarily due to the flexibility provided by the system, but rather because of
the courage and creativity of improvisation from the subjects or actors.
However, trust solely legal independence and justice on the shoulders of the
actors of course itís also a
naive, because there is no guarantee at all that this will always be happened. In addition, the actor who is just human, cannot be always successfully to stand outside the system. He/she is always threatened by the hegemony through customs and social
practice which isindividually internalized. Therefore the system should have a clear and firm,
but still not rigid in the sense still leave room for creativity of the actors.
Distinctive contribution of this book lies in the factual presentation of the diagnosis of the causes of contamination independence of judicial power in this country as well as offering a way out emphasing system reformation and state power structures that respect each other.
