The book is told in two parts. Part one "Justice For None" underlines what's wrong with our law schools, lawyers, judges, and juries. He draws from cases, some of which he was the lawyer, to show how ordinary people victimized by corporate crime and medical malpractice are constantly denied justice before they even step into a courtroom. Likewise Spence analyzes how the entire justice system has been corrupted starting with law school entrance exams designed to weed out minorities and conscientious individuals. And in the end, the resulting system feeds on our lives and liberty in the name of profit.
Part two "Justice For All" takes each aspect covered in part one and shows how it can be mended so that justice can prevail for all citizens. Spence's ideas are radical because their aim is revolution against the corporate anarchy of our time that is allowed to kill literally countless people with virtually no consequence. Even if you don't agree with his solutions, you can appreciate his opening a dialogue about how we can realistically change things. What if we reclaim our airwaves and charge these billion-dollar networks a proper fee? What if corporations had to disclose past crime each time they aired a commercial the way cigarettes must include a warning about lung cancer?
WARNING: This company has been found guilty of embezzling 20 million dollars from its customers last year.
Kinda makes it difficult to put some catchy trust slogan after that, right?
Spence is also a philosopher about our human rights for spiritual and environmental freedom. He shares his ideas in humble and straight forward manner that encourages the reader to nurture his own and express them. He truly captures the essence of freedom of speech as our most valuable right because the exchange of ideas dashes away all psychological bondage.
When our corporate dictatorship falls, the future generations will reflect on men like Gerry Spence.
