Nader has written an article published by Huffington Post that addresses questions I frequently hear. He wrote:
“Out there in the country, the rule of law and justice is relentlessly overwhelmed by concentrated, unjust power. Just consider the stark reality that our profession’s legal services are unaffordable to most Americans and, as retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has been tirelessly arguing, legal aid resources for access to justice are consistently pathetic.
But the reality of raw economic, political and technological power over a just legal order has broader consequences. From the lawlessness of presidential war-making exercised abroad daily, to the plutocrat-shaped and dominated corporate state, to stifling the fair usage of our two pillars of private law ― contracts and torts ― there is an undeniable crisis outside of Harvard Law School that Davis factually and normatively contends is aided and abetted by the culture, incentives and practices at our alma mater.
The underlying moral basis of law has been supplanted by the commercial motivations and their tailored analytic skills.”
