Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a New Government….it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards? for their future Security.
— Thomas Jefferson
The WA State Bar is no different than a criminal enterprise. It would be impossible to tell the difference between the nature of a ‘street gang’ and the nature of the WA State Bar. They are both “gangs” and both operate for the benefit of the gang members. And each preys upon “outsiders” for their sustenance.
I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quite worthy of man either.
Studies done by researchers from the University of Utah and Harvard
found that individuals who could gain monetarily through unethical behavior were more likely to demonstrate that behavior than those who weren’t offered a financial gain. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/just-scent-money-corrupting-study-145900192.html
And we all know that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to determine from the evidence …. the “power” and the “monetary motives” will drive lawyers to behave “unethically”.
The solution is as simple as following the constitution… “it is the people” as in a “jury” who must sit in judgment of judges and lawyers. Otherwise we people are simply at risk by having all the power and monetary trappings of the profession that leads to “unethical” conduct, run rampant through our society. And that must NEVER be allowed to happen.
