The Rule of Law

Should we believe in the rule of law? It seems disingenuous to believe in it because it hides the fact that people interpret the law, and hence, interpreters (people, such as Supreme Court Justices) are the rulers. Just a thought. Can we imagine an ideal democracy adjudicating on a case-by-case basis, thereby avoiding universal claims of interpretation? I will think about this more.
