Quote of the day 19th February 2021

I am fairly certain that Shakespeare did not intend this quote by "Dick the Butcher" at the start of Cade's rebellion in his play Henry VI Part 2 to be received  as a suggestion that killing all the lawyers would actually be a good idea, however popular it might be with some, Nor do I so proffer it. It is an indication of how those who want anarchy would start to obtain it.

The presence of lawyers is necessary for a society governed by laws, not by men (or women). 

There is no absolute guarantee that a society governed by laws will be free, fair, or safe.  But you can be certain that there have been few if any societies not governed by law that were any of those things.
