Listening to lawyers and law students speak among themselves about the law and its ultimate value can be disconcerting. They are a cynical bunch.

If the political winds are going in the right direction and a lawyer can position her sails properly, the law can be used to strip people of their right to self-defense and empower terrorists who seek to deprive them of their self-determination. For these folks, the law is not a tool used to pursue peace and reciprocal justice, but to legitimize murder and mayhem by reckless power seekers.
