I wonder what a jury of 12 peers would find in a
different country. This doesn't sound like a
typical 'trial' as we understand them to operate
in either the US or Australia. A judge wouldn't
necessarily be 'finding' anything except in
pre-hearing motions or arraignments.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the
world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
