Scott's Jurisprudence

Wednesday, June 18, 2003



While waiting for the dentist yesterday, I read the cover article on Hillary in the most recent issue of Time magazine. Hillary continues to argue that the manner in which the Monica Lewinsky incident was pursued was overtly political and that this was wrong. She’s right. But, what she does not understand is that the politicization of the process is what kept Bill Clinton in office and out of prison. Want to know why? Check out the rest of my comments linked below.

June 16, 2003 - Justice to the Corporations

In early 1908, the country was still reeling from the consequences of the Panic of 1907. Then, as now, there was a climate of hostility toward large corporations because of the suffering that many thought had been brought about by management greed and corporate abuses.

In January of that year, the Atlantic Monthly published an article by Henry Lee Higginson entitled Justice to the Corporations. Higginson set out to defend corporations of the day. His article is interesting because it sheds some light on the history of corporations (which, for those who are not familiar with it, is relatively short), and because the allegations 95 years ago were very similar to the allegations being leveled against large corporations today. My analysis of Higginsons's arguments continue in the piece linked below.
