One bit of good news in a bad week for the American middle- and working-classes was the freeing of Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry, the Chief Justice who had been deposed and put under house arrest by Pakistan's military dictator aka President Pervez Musharraf. Pakistan's new Prime Minister was behind the move, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Why mention this now, when the American middle-class is trying to get through the financial crisis? Because we won't get through the crisis unless we learn to fight like these guys. Middle-classes of the world - all you economic majorities everywhere - wake the hell up.
Why can't our lawyers be more like these guys?
