I suspect there will be a lot of companies or organizations turning military surplus into agricultural implements.]]>
Besides, roles taken up by lawyers in the US are filled in Japan by hordes of government bureaucrats. You trade one disadvantage for another.]]>
I’m not a lawyer basher and I understand that many of your clients might be wonderful people but they need your services because others among us are not so wonderful. I once heard that in some societies (Japan is what I am thinking of) there is less of a need for lawyers because there is sort of an honor code between people or between citizens and companies where disputes are worked out in fairness before the courts are required. I’m sure you would know more about that than I.
I guess my perception is that we would live in that manner during the millenium and our first goal would be to resolve differences in fairness and we would all recognize what fairness means. Idealistic? Certainly. But isn’t that what religion is all about?]]>
I assume you believe that even good and just people might decide they are not right for each other and get divorced, or create and dissolve partnerships, or purchase interests in each others’ businesses. Don’t they need laws and written documents to govern these things?
Also, are you saying that there will be no disputes whatsoever? Do you think people will be perfect or all-knowing? Cause if they aren’t, they are still going to have disagreements, and those disagreements will rquire advocates, mediators and/or judges.]]>
