Is it a despicable business such as lawyering or used car sales?
Lawyering is despicable??
Okay, I was a little harsh.
Bad lawyers: public defenders, music industry lawyers, district attorneys, assistant district attorneys, lawyers advertising on TV, lawyers filing frivolous suits, lawyers filing case action suits where they get 40%, 60%, or more of the award, divorce lawyers, lawyers who charge their full (highly inflated) fee yet have paralegals do most of the work, lawyers who run for elected offices, lawyers who use the technicalities of the law (i.e. what they do is legally right but morally wrong).
Good lawyers: lawyers working for non-profits that help people and a few corporate lawyers.
The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
