Have you ever felt that true justice is available only to the wealthy?  That is often the truth.  John Davis was confident that he would win the lawsuit against a man who had taken him for a ride.  He had built his business carefully and honestly.  Solly Abrams promised to market John’s products, and placed a big order, on the proviso that he would get the sole selling rights to the most lucrative markets.  John delivered the goods and Solly promised to pay.  Eventually, John’s patience ran thin and he demanded performance by Solly, in terms of sales and of payment for the goods delivered.  Then, when the deadline was about to expire, Solly pulled a classical stunt.  John got the message, he thought, and cancelled the sole selling rights.  Solly responded with a claim that John believed to be frivolous, but he had no other choice – it was sue Solly for payment or lose his business and three year’s hard work.

That was when John’s nightmare began!  He found that justice can sometimes – often – be bought, by paying for legal expertise, by employing legalised delaying tactics, or by buying the Judge.  When John recovered from the shock of the huge judgement against him, he decided that honest people needed an avenue to true justice, and he and some associates provided that avenue.

It did not take John too long to find that what seems to be true justice is sometimes less satisfying than the flawed legal system!

Thoughts

23 May

A lazy New Year lunch develops into a discussion of why the people of the world are so complacent about the many issues that should excite controversy and action, things like global warming and the profligate use, almost to exhaustion, of the world’s limited resources.  Pete, a young industrialist, has developed a new class of military helmet with some special qualities.  He offers it to his friends to look at, and Ariadne puts it on her head.  To her surprise, she finds that her thinking processes are relieved of much of the static that people have come to accept as normal – her thinking is clear again, as it used to be.

The friends agree to report the phenomenon to the Special Branch of the Police, but Joseph, who does this, is arrested on a charge of treason, for possession of State secrets.  When a writ of Habeas Corpus is sought by his Attorney, he is released, but killed soon after in a mysterious explosion, and the friends soon find that they are the targets of Police surveillance.

They flee to a remote farm, and try to work out the source of the transmission that is affecting their thinking, to work out a way to nullify the massive forces trying to take them out of contention.  Using friends and contacts, they escape the country and travel to theUnited States, where a senior Senator assists them to escape the traps that exist for them even there.  Pete is able to manufacture sufficient helmets for the US Secret Service and several allied agencies to use in tracking the source of the transmission that threatens to undermine law and order throughout the world.

Come to think of it – do you believe that you are thinking clearly at all times?
