To keep the average Citizen from learning how to use the law for his/her own benefit. It's almost illegal to even talk about the law.. it's crazy.. I started teaching my son about the Law when he was 9. He now approaches me every so often with contractual agreements for me to buy him toys in exchange for doing stuff that he has to do anyway.. The Law, the theory of law, procedures, etc.. should be taught from Jr. High school forward.. It's almost impossible to fully excercise your citizenship without a knowledge of how to use the law.. How to sue.. and defend.. court procedures.. etc..
