Supreme court-packing proposal

So, some in the Democratic party are suggesting ‘packing the court’ by adding 2 more justices (and also getting rid of the filibuster, but hat’s another post all on it’s own!). I can’t see how this would be helpful; the next Democrat president adds 2 judges, then the next Republican adds 2 more, etc., etc. Where would it end? What are the chances of getting truly fair legal minds on the court?

Another scheme involved having 15 justices on the court, 5 chosen by each party, and the last 5 chosen by the other 10. Might work today, but what happens if new political parties happen? Then what? Those parties get 2 or 3 choices?
