Your link is helpful. It would also be good to add a short explanation because you never know if the website or link will stop working in the future.
The French subjunctive is a special verb form, called a mood, that is used in dependent clauses to indicate some sort of subjectivity, uncertainty, or unreality in the mind of the speaker. In French, feelings like doubt and desire require the subjunctive, as do expressions of necessity
So when a speaker uses "Il faut que", their opinion about what is needed or necessary is considered subjective.
