A factious element , especially within a political or religious
realm , can typically cause more trouble and havoc than
any external force.

... [W]hile admitting what Hardiman J. described as, "the factious assumption that a person can always know for certain the age of another", in practice the requirement to seek an Age Card will only arise in a relatively limited number of instances. (...)
