In the 1970’s the USA began to see an explosion in the number of lawyers in this country. Today they barrage TV viewers with negative ads 24/7. It’s gotten so bad you can’t even wipe your own legal butt here without a lawyer Okaying the brand of toilet paper you can use!
For example in the 1970’s we had 600 lawyers at the Pentagon. 25 years later there were 10,000 of them there. Does make you wonder how many lawyers the Russian and Chinese military have to listen to. But hey if the Russian/Chinese military get to the high ground first very likely because our thousands of military lawyers were haggling over which legal I’s and T’s needed to be crossed before we can begin to defend ourselves!
