Our Corrupt Legal System: Why Everyone is a Victim [except Rich Criminals]

Our Corrupt Legal SystemThis book came to my attention via our Stop the Oppression of the British people petition.

The Australian author Evan Whitton writes for a legal journal Justinian and online at NetKnowledge. He has institaged an interesting petition asking the House of Representatives to implement a truth-seeking investigative system rather than continue with the current adversary system.

A review can be found here and even more to the point here. One of “our victims turned starfighters” Colin Peters also wrote a review which is here.

In an email exchange, Evan made the following points:

Judges and lawyers are one-fifth of one per cent of the population in common law countries. They do not believe that justice means truth.

Justice Russell Fix says the public [99.8%] know that “justice marches with the truth”.

Common law countries will change to a  truth-seeking system when lawyers in legislatures learn to fear the public more than they love the anti-truth system.

Re the arms race:

In a Justinian column (Feb 11, 2010) I noted that in JFK and the Unspeakable (Orbis, 2008), Jim Douglass nominated the people who run the US as being a cabal of big business, big banks, big armaments makers, big military, big law, and big media, with the Central Intelligence Agency doing their dirty work round the world, and that the cabal’s marching song, as Richard Condon did not quite say, appears to be:

Profit is the key to life;
Profit is the clue;
Profit is the drum and fife;
And any war will do.

Re change of the legal system:

It is not impossible. As I note in Our Corrupt Legal System (pp. 267-268), we already use a truth-seeking system (often quite badly of course) for Royal Commissions, inquests etc.

The main thing will be to abolish the judge-lawyer cartel by training judges separately from lawyers, as they do in Europe.

  11. The 9/11 truth is out on the internet
    This is the truth: The WTC was destroyed by 3 underground thermo-nuclear
    explosions. They were detonated by the US government which used this as
    an excuse to lead the US and its allies into invading Afghanistan and
    Iraq. All these wars and deaths were based on a lie.

    Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people
    will eventually come to believe it.”

    Will you help to tell the truth to the world?

    Be sure to watch the 26 part video there.
