I didn't have the patience or bandwidth to download the video (I am in Nicaragua), but I did want to react to the premise. The world is too complicated -- in fact, to say nothing of how we have made it -- solely to let our internal moral lights quide us in our convoluted affairs. Too, one man's moral compass may not be another's. Or worse, one's moral compass may not give him or her a reading, that is, have anything to say on point. Finally, the complexity of the law is one reason we have lawyer's: to give us informed advise on how we should proceed. We no longer live in homogeneous communities of mud huts and chrush grains for a living.
