The character who utters this line is a terrorist who wants to
violently overthrow lawful authority and deprive the public of the
freedom that comes from the rule of law; the terrorist
knows that, in order to do away with the protection which the
law gives the common man, he must first kill off the people who
devote their lives to upholding the rule of law and the freedom
of the people . . . the lawyers.
Imperial Japan had few lawyers, and was a dictatorship.
Nazi Germany disbarred Jewish lawyers and all lawyers and judges
who tried to uphold the rule of law.
I prefer the system we have in the English-speaking countries of
the US, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and keep our attorneys
upholding the rights of the citizens through the rule of law.
