Regulations For Thee, But Not For Me

This is a whiny article written, I presume, by a jealous "right" rent seeker. He's angry that a "left" rent seeker has benefited from regulations.

But regulations are for the benefit of rent seekers. They are nothing more than an interference with market forces.

Thomas Pynchon is quoted as having said: "If they can keep you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers." Nobody thinks to ask why anybody can or should be restrained from "practicing (whatever that's supposed to mean) law".

"Bars" are monopolistic restraints of trade. They exist to make certain there will be no such thing as "justice" -- only one dues-paying "lawyer" who outperforms his "opponent" in the shamanism of "law".

The enormity of the truth is incredible
