Mr. Nader,

The first thing that came to mind as I was about a third of the way through this article is that an aristocracy has taken over America. Those aristocrats seek a life of privilege over others. A life of privilege is a life without accountability.

Corruption is an exchange of money for privilege. And as I write these words, I flash on the words of Judge Learned Hand, and how he says that liberty lies in the hearts of men and women, not in constitutions.

I agree with you. We need all of our lawyers to be heroes for the people they claim to serve.
