shame to the legal profession

16-11-2020

"Even if the court challenges to the election fail—as we expect they will—the baseless attacks on the legitimacy of how the election has been conducted will have long-term effects on the health of our democracy,” wrote Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the National Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law" as  I quote from attached document in Politico.

When many lawyers are willing to pursue flimsy lawsuits to overturn the outcome of legally held and accounted elections, there must also be something fatally wrong with the profession. Law is supposed to uphold the rule of law and democracy. Whenever asked (and paid for) to take a case, every lawyer ought to examine his conscience whether allowed to do so. Lawyer's complicity with the destruction of democracy is morally unacceptable.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?
