Law and Justice Explained.

 Posted on June 25, 2009 in Uncategorized

I just stumbled upon this, in comments to a long-ago Ann Althouse post:

One of the most annoying things about lawyers is the way they casually conflate "law" with "justice." To clarify: justice is a concept in philosophy; also to some extent in psychology, sociology, economics, etc. Law is what a bunch of mostly long-dead politicians thought would get them reelected. There's no connection between the two. None. The relation between law and those other fields is much like the relation between astrology and astronomy...except that astrologers don't have guns.
