Life without lawyers?

George Will is always a great articulator of common sense.  He doesn’t disappoint today with a column entitled Running at Recess.

In this piece, Will aptly describes today’s legal climate saying “Time was, rights were defensive. They were to prevent government from doing things to you. Today, rights increasingly are offensive weapons wielded to inflict demands on other people, using state power for private aggrandizement.”  This certainly describes what we see with Involuntary Redistribution of Assets (IRA) cases in which probate venues and/or probate instruments are used to loot assets of the dead and disabled/incapacitated.

Will quotes a new book by Philip Howard called Life Without Lawyers: Liberating Americans from Too Much Law.  Sounds like a “must read.”
