Ascended Master Nada, May 4th, 2017, through Kim Michaels. This dictation was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea.
I AM the Ascended Master, Nada, and I wish to give you some perspective on the remark made by Jesus so many years ago when he said: “Woe unto ye lawyers.” What does this mean for the Golden Age and for the bringing in of the Golden Age? Well, it means simply that the profession that you now see as the legal profession will have to change dramatically in order to align itself with the vision of Saint Germain. This, of course, must start, not just with the lawyers who are, so to speak, interpreting the law but also with the lawmakers who make the laws.
Lawmaking for the privileged elite
What you have today is a tradition that is very, very old. The purpose of making laws and the purpose of setting up a legal system, a court system, that is interpreting these laws is affected by the mindset of the fallen beings to such an extent that in many countries the real purpose of the entire system is to give special privileges to the ruling elite of people or to give them a way to escape accountability.
There is, of course, in many democratic nations a certain limit to how they can set up the laws in order to give themselves privileges because a democracy is based on the fundamental principle that all of its citizens should be equal to the law. Yet even in democratic countries there are always those who seek to create laws in such a way that they set up exceptions for certain people or certain segments of society. You have seen this especially with the business community where in many countries there are certain corporations that are so big that they are considered too important for the country so that the country cannot risk that they will either go down or move their businesses elsewhere. Therefore, there is a tendency to create laws in such a way that these businesses are in effect, given a favorable position.
This is something that, of course, cannot exist in the Golden Age. It is necessary for you to make calls on this so that there will be a rising awareness of the need to remove all such special privileges or exemptions in the laws of democratic countries so that they do not favor particular businesses or organizations. This will require a change in the mindset, but this will be brought about by other things that we will talk about and other calls you can make. Of course, there needs to be a trust in the nations that we do not need to give special privileges to certain companies. We do not need to, in effect, give them monopolies in order for our economy to survive.
There is today a widespread belief in many countries that the economy of certain nations simply could not survive without these huge corporations. It is, of course, not correct because it is indeed very possible that many smaller businesses can make up for the loss of one big business. It is a perception created by the fallen beings in order to give them power and to give them privileges and maintain those privileges so that they, in effect, do not have to run a business that is geared toward serving its customers. Therefore, they can get away with this because there is no effective competition due to the favored position they have been given.
Unnecessarily complicated laws
Once you remove such barriers in the laws, then what remains is to look at the legal system and how the courts and the lawyers are interpreting, and in many cases manipulating, the laws. When you look at democratic countries, it is not so difficult to bring about a situation where certain organizations no longer have these special privileges. You still have the fact that you have created a culture in the legal system of most nations where those who are part of the legal system do not want to change the system in fundamental ways because they make their living off of that system.
You know very well that in most countries the lawyers are often among the wealthiest people because they can charge very high fees. They can charge high fees because the country has such a complicated set of laws and such a complicated legal system that in effect it gives a privileged position, even in some cases a kind of monopoly position, to the lawyers. They are the only ones who can interpret the system. This, of course, you need to make calls on so that countries will come to realize that this entire culture is based on a simple fact. Namely that the law system, the system of the laws, is becoming increasingly complicated, increasingly large. There is simply an unnecessary burden of all of these laws that are becoming more and more complex in all countries.
Now, obviously, you cannot create a very simple law in a complex country because there are many considerations that need to be put into the system of laws. Nevertheless, what you can make calls on is that people will realize the need to simplify the laws so that there is not as much room for interpretation. What often makes the law system complex is that the entire legal profession in a country has created a culture where, for example, they say that the laws must not discriminate. In order to avoid discriminating, we have to write various conditions into the laws so that no-one is discriminated against. Even this can be used, not only to create complexity but also to create a situation where the efforts to seemingly not discriminate actually become an openness for an almost endless interpretation of the laws so that there is no clarity in how to implement these laws.
Once you start creating such a complex system of laws that hardly anyone can interpret them, you end up in a situation where the people who are writing the laws often simply do not have the vision of how a new law they are creating might potentially contradict what is said in a previous law. You end up with these situations where everything is so complicated that no one can really foresee the consequences of a new law and how it might contradict a previous law. This, again, gives leeway for the lawyers to begin to interpret, and all of a sudden the laws that were meant to for example prevent discrimination against certain groups actually become a tool whereby those who can afford to hire the expensive lawyers can use the laws as a form of loophole. They can actually use the law that was meant to prevent discrimination to create a new form of discrimination where they themselves can manipulate the laws so that they are claiming a certain freedom that they are not entitled to because they are not actually being discriminated against. They are using it to set themselves up in an exempt position where they do not have to follow the same rules as others.
I know my beloved that this is abstract but I do not wish to go into giving you too many concrete examples because again this would become something that could be interpreted and interpreted and interpreted. What I wish you to make calls on is that there is a need for the democratic nations to wake up and realize that they need to step back and look at their legal system and look how it is being misused by the lawyers to give exemptions to a small elite who can afford to pay the attorneys. They can continue to pay these attorney’s fees and create these court cases that seem to go on forever and ever. In the end, they end up giving them special privileges that no ordinary citizens could ever claim because they simply could not afford to pay the legal fees.
Only the elite can afford legal fees
What you have created here is a legal system that has become very complicated. Even though it is based on good intentions of preventing the discrimination against certain groups of people, the complication of the system, the level of complexity of the system, is actually reinforcing the situation where there is an upper class who can afford to play the legal game.
Then, there is the broader population who simply have no recourse because they cannot afford to run a court case that costs tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of dollars in legal fees. You end up creating this privileged position where those who can take advantage of the system do so and therefore can set themselves up to either have privileges or to generate profits. They can effectively destroy competition by running these lawsuits against their competitors that no smaller businesses can afford. Therefore, the smaller businesses cannot challenge the older established businesses.
There is also a tendency in most countries, to create so many rules that, for example, businesses have to comply with that this in itself creates a privileged position for the large businesses that can afford to hire the lawyers or the experts or build the facilities that are required. In essence, you have a situation where the legal system that actually was meant to protect the people, is being used by large established businesses to destroy their competition or to prevent the competition from even arising because they cannot afford to comply with the elaborate rules.
It is necessary for you to make the calls that there is a rising awareness. Again, we do not need people to know about ascended master teachings, we do not need them to understand the dynamic of the fallen beings. But it is not beyond the capability of the people in most nations to realize that there is always a power elite that is seeking to gain special power and privileges for themselves and they will use any aspect of society, including the legal system and the bureaucratic system.
It is not beyond the capacity of most people to realize that for the ordinary citizen in a democratic country, it is in their best interest to have a relatively simple legal system and a relatively simple set of bureaucratic rules so that they themselves can figure out what their rights are. It is certainly something to make calls on so that people will realize that the tendency to complicate everything − to complicate the legal system, to complicate the bureaucracy − only serves the elite. They are the only ones who can afford to hire the attorneys to take advantage of this complex system. They are using it over and over and over again to set themselves up so that the people cannot challenge them. Thereby, this system of complexity creates a privileged position for the few and effectively shuts out the many from attaining these privileges.
