‘’In tribal times, there were the medicine men.
In the Middle Ages, there were the priests. Today, there are the lawyers. For
every age, a group of bright boys, learned in their trades and jealous of their
learning, who blend technical competence with plain and fancy hocus-pocus to
make themselves masters of their fellow men. For every age, a
pseudo-intellectual autocracy, guarding the tricks of the trade from the
uninitiated, and running, after its own pattern, the civilization of its day.’’
Fred Rodell, Yale Law
