One thought on “Whatever Happened to Justice? Revised Edition

  1. Girly

    Another great book by Maybury Uncle Eric books should be required reading for high schoolers, if not middle schoolers It still amazes me how much of this I didn t even learn in school way back when, and they are definitely not teaching this to kids nowadays.I believe we d be living in a much different world today if a strong grasp of Economics and the Justice System and the history of each were required in public schools I was just reading some of the reviews on this book and although the review [...]

  2. Laura

    This book is an absolute must read Not only do I want to own this book in my library of classics, I desire the entire series I am excited to read it to, and with my children and discuss the topics it adresses I can understand now why other reviewers of this book state that if there was only ONE change they could make to the American Public High School Curriculum, they would make Maybury s Uncle Eric books required reading and toss the other textbooks out.This book helped me understand the WHY be [...]

  3. Caroline Potterf

    This book was absolutely brilliant So much sense, reason and organized thought This book is empowering and I feel that all adults should be fully aware of Common Law I am very excited to read about it This book is a fantastic place to start.A quick note about the book itself, not its subject It is written to be engaging at all times I really appreciate that, after a lame high school education using drab textbooks This book is written as an uncle to his nephew, in letter form Each letter is pret [...]

  4. Jill Courser

    4.5 stars My son age 15 and I both really enjoyed this book Very enlightening perspective on the state of our country s government and justice system I consider myself a conservative, and I still found some of my own views challenged by Maybury s arguments how my mind has been shaped by the culture and system we live in Excellent introduction to our country s roots in common law and how far we have strayed from that foundation.

  5. Meredith

    Don t entirely agree with his philosophy, but was very educational and gave me a lot to think about.

  6. LeeAnn

    I am really enjoying this series of Uncle Eric books about economics and law Each book basically covers one topic so you can either read it quickly or delve into it and learn a great deal In this book, he discusses the two basic systems of law, common and political law, and how each affects the economic prosperity of the people Common law came out of religious laws and clergymen were frequently the intermediaries who helped settle disputes They would hear each side and then study their religious [...]

  7. Celeste Batchelor

    My opinion of this books cannot be expressed enough in this review Whatever Happened to Justice , along with it s predecessor Whatever Happened to Penny Candy , simply explain in layman s terms the extent of what our society is missing today in economics and law I HIGHLY recommend them to all They are written for about high school level, even though some bright middle schoolers could probably understand them They are best used in a discussion setting We have found them to be very enlightening an [...]

  8. Barbara Radisavljevic

    This should be must reading for all those who think character doesn t matter as long as the economy is good In this book Mr Maybury explores America s legal heritage and explains the two kinds of law the higher law and man made or political law He shows how substituting the latter for the former causes the economy to suffer He also explains two laws on which all major religions and philosophies agree that are the basis of our common law When politicians make laws that displace this common law, i [...]

  9. Aria Maher

    This book is very interesting and explains common law and political law in an eye opening way, but I don t really agree with some of Richard Maybury s arguments For example, he says that all government is inherently evil Although people make mistakes and power can be corrupting, that doesn t make the idea of government itself evil, especially from a Christian point of view, where the highest form of government, that being God Himself, is true goodness itself However, he does do a good job showin [...]

  10. Furbjr

    I m reading this because it was selected as the Book of the Month for June 2012 on freedombookclubThis book, written as a series of letters from Eric doing his avuncular duties towards his nephew, are laying the groundwork for the return to common law Whatever Happened to Justice exposes, in language that any high school student should be able to understand, the difference between statutory law and common law That is to say the differences between the laws decreed by the ruling classes, and the [...]

  11. Dawn Oswald

    This is an excellent book and should be read by all who wish to know about the impact of economics on our justice system as well as the history of law Mr Maybury is clear and concise in his analysis of various aspects of the law and our society where we started and where we have ended up Although written in 1992, I find it very interesting that many of the same topics discussed around the nation today were being discussed then I can t wait to read the next Uncle Eric book and would love to own t [...]

  12. JP

    Once again, Uncle Eric explains clearly and concisely the fundamentals we have forgotten He focuses this time on our system of justice, especially the abandonment of common and higher law If people understood these concepts, our world would improve He addresses that there are some unresolved problems, and offers some direction toward solving them example capital punishment completely ignores the tradition of restitution This book reminds us that democracy can easily become a tyranny of the majo [...]

  13. Erin

    My colleagues and I each received a copy of this book as a company Christmas present I thought it would be boring, but it s actually very interesting and absorbing It s about the connection between economics and law, and the difference between common law and political law In brief, common law is natural law, based on moral absolutes, while political law is force wielded by whoever is in power.

  14. Hannah

    This great book gives a fabulous, detailed description of America s legal system today and how it relates to the original ideals of the Founders and the Constitution A definate must read for everyone interested in law or the legal system, and a very highly reommended read for every single American I appreciated the perspective and style I really enjoyed this book, and I think you will, too

  15. Sally Ewan

    This book is centered on the two fundamental principles Do everything you have agreed to and Do not encroach on others The author, a libertarian, talks about the history of common natural law and how it was supplanted by political law Yet another reminder of how the government messes things up and should be much smaller and less encroaching than it is now

  16. Ken

    Whatever Happened to Justice Has been a life changing book for me I look at everything that is happening around me in a diffrent light dealing with politics, and how this country is what it is.

  17. Audrina

    I think this is very insightful into government This book was written in 93 and I think it is interesting that he was right on in the direction of our country I enjoyed it and look forward to reading from him.

  18. Deann

    As so many others have said, this is a must read It s a great book to understand the complexities of our evolved government without being difficult to understand Gives some great points to consider concerning where we ve gone overboard.

  19. Shane Clark

    A really simple, clear, and thoughtful look at what constitutes law, justice, and governance If you want to teach young adults or smart kids or yourself some important lessons about what political power is and how it should and, importantly, shouldn t be used, this is a terrific book.

  20. Jennifer

    I have been reading the Uncle Eric books, both on my own and to my kids This latest installment was the clearest, most definitive discussion of natural law, common law and political law that I have ever read Highly recommended.

  21. Rebekah

    According to Maybury, the two essential laws are 1 Do all you have agreed to do and2 Do not encroach on other persons or their property.There is a lot of good stuff in this book Highly recommended.

  22. Jeremiah

    Do all that you have agreed to do and do not encroach on the rights property of others Enough said.

  23. Molly Christensen

    Great book on politics, government and how that s related to economics Easy to read and very clear.

  24. Kristi

    Excellent book on the justice system we use and how far it has strayed from the intent of the founding fathers

  25. Steven

    Great book on law, government, what s wrong with ours, and how we got there Highly recommended for everyone

  26. Rino Watch

    This was the lost puzzle piece that explained the gaps in what happened to the Founders America Easy to read, pleasant, one of the best books I have ever read.

  27. Maren Brudnicki

    Real eye opener I like this author, he brings tough subjects to a really easy to understand level A good read.cially during an election year.
