Whatever Happened to Justice? by Richard J. Maybury explores America’s legal heritage, and shows what’s gone wrong with our legal system and economy and how to fix it. Mr. Maybury discusses the difference between higher law and man-made law, and the connection between rational law and economic prosperity. Whatever Happened to Justice? introduces the Two Laws that Mr. Maybury writes are necessary for a civilization to develop and advance:
1) Do all you have agreed to do, and
2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property.
Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist (Uncle Eric) writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew (Chris). Using stories and examples, Mr. Maybury gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.
Mr. Maybury warns, “beware of anyone who tells you a topic is above you or better left to experts. Many people are twice as smart as they think they are, but they’ve been intimidated into believing some topics are above them. You can understand almost anything if it is explained well.”
