The creation and legislation of laws should be kept out of the privet sector. The privet sector doesn't have the checks and balances the government has in place to protect everyone from unfair legislation. For instance. The Red Cross will now allow gay men to donate blood. As long as they have not had any kind of relationship for a year or more. That's privet sector laws. Privet sector laws are usually self serving and don't have to fare to everyone. This isn't saying there aren't bad laws out there. It's up to everyone to get the bad laws out of the books. That would be a lot harder to do if they were all in the privet sector hands.
I agree, but what I failed to make clear was that those who earn a living from how laws are
written and possibly benift from this activity should not be eligible to run for or be
appointed to a law makeing body.
Let's have our legislators be citizens who are not in the business of law. I am not saying all
lawyers are bad, but the temptation for lawyers to write laws in such a way to benifit themselves
or others in their profession is rather great. We can change laws when they are bad, but a good
law can be written in such a way that one needs a lawyer to understand or how to apply it. It's often
harder to change how a law is written since many people look at the point of the law rather
than the language of it.
Lawyers should not worry, they will always be needed, as they have since ancient times. So
long as there are three people in the world. Two to argue, and a lawyer to arbitrate.
