    goes way beyond habeas corpus.  If you don't have access to the courts, you don't have any rights at all, because there is no other effective way to enforce your rights when the government decides to deprive you of them.  Furthermore, if you don't have a right to ensure that you receive the same treatment as your neighbor, you don't have any rights in fact, because the courts can decide to ignore those rights at any time and for any reason.

    Everyone got excited here about habeas, but no one gets too excited here -- even though this is more likely to hit people where they live.
