I think that Hamilton is correct in his assertion.  The primary function of the judicial is to interpret the Constitutionality of laws and actions of the legislative and executive branch.  In this respect, its power is limited to being a strong response to the other two.  It does not have the explicit powers of being able to initiate anything, and in this respect, it represents the least amount of danger because it is not going to do anything that will plunge the nation into peril.  At its worst, it is going to interpret the Constitution, which cannot be considered dangerous because this is the essence of American jurisprudence and the “supreme law of the land.”
