Ignorance of the law is no excuse!

Every time a legal question comes up, most run to an attorney to get an explanation. We naively ask them questions like: what does this rule mean, what does this bill mean, or what does this term mean? However, our dependence on attorneys has rarely enhanced our lives. And, there is a good reason why this is true.

In 1939 Yale law professor Fred Rodell wrote an amazing book, Woe Unto You, Lawyers!, exposing lawyers, judges and legal-speak. He pointed out reality regarding “The Law” (Rodell’s term) that exists today across the planet – in spades.

“It is the lawyers who run our civilization for us – our governments, our business, our private lives. Most legislators are lawyers; they make our laws.

There is no separation of powers where the lawyers are concerned. There is only a concentration of all government power – in the lawyers. As the schoolboy put it, ours is “a government of lawyers, not of men.””

It is a fact that lawyers intentionally write laws and contracts using language non-lawyers cannot comprehend. Even though we are expected to abide by these unintelligible laws and honor these incomprehensible contracts/agreements, they are written in a language that only lawyers can understand. If you doubt this fact, get out and read the “terms and conditions” your bank insisted you agree to when you opened your checking account or got your mortgage. Did anyone take a lawyer with them when they opened their checking account?

From Chapter I of Woe Unto You, Lawyers!

“For the lawyers’ trade is a trade built entirely on words. And so long as the lawyers carefully keep to themselves the key to what those words mean, the only way the average man can find out what is going on is to become a lawyer, or at least to study law, himself. All of which makes it very nice – and very secure – for the lawyers.” Continue reading
