Before We Nationalize Healthcare …
… I propose that we Nationalize the Jurisprudence/Educational Complex.
All law schools, professors, law firms, lawyers and legal secretaries become government entities and employees. All fees will be fixed and independent of the size of any monetary awards since all budgets, fees and salaries will be set and funded solely by Congress.
Every US Citizen is bound by the rule of law and subject to loss up to and including loss of life. It is only FAIR that the government guarantee equality under the law, and the only means to ensure FAIRNESS is to remove the awful PROFIT and GREED from the legal profession and eliminate the UNFAIR advantage that the RICH have over the poor downtrodden masses.
After all, the current system is an obvious OLIGARCHY where the laws are written by lawyers in such a manner that they can only be understood by lawyers, passed by a Congress that is composed almost entirely of lawyers, signed by a President that is often a lawyer, and adjudicated exclusively by lawyers. If that isn’t an OLIGARCHY, I don’t know what is.
