A LAW DEGREE MIGHT HINDER YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF PROPERTARIANISM
by Daniel Roland Anderson (law)
Depending on oneâs academic and personal background, a law degree does significantly more harm than good when it comes to understanding Curtâs work. (Math, Engineering, and Philosophy majors can help. English Lit, Sociology, and Political Science will hinder.)
Mostly, a law degree hurts, because one learns to conflate legislation and regulation with actual lawâwhich you wonât learn in law school at all.
And the version of Common Law schools teach (pilpul) will definitely do more harm than good because reciprocity has no role in the process, unless learning how to circumvent, distort, denigrate, and subvert reciprocity counts as a ârole.â
Law schools excel at this.
Also, Dunning-Kruger will be an issue for most law school grads.
The situation is actually worse than Iâm making out, but Iâm spending some time with a friend who grew up working in the fields with me, so Iâm in a good mood.
This kid just turned 32 and intuitively grasps the basics of Curtâs work very, very quickly.
He graduated high school with a 1.7 GPA, played a little college football and then never held an 8-5 jobâopting instead for work where results determined income 100%. Heâs trained people and started businesses and is raising a family.
He has a real law degree. 😉
