Heck you can even use a hypothetical situation and make it more narrow. Just because David is a working class man doesn't mean he is right. Just because Goliath has money doesn't mean he will win..... have you even studied law? Both sides win all the time. You have to look...

Thank you.
I'd be interested to know in what way the scenario is flawed. How's this for a condensed version then?: To what extent is justice available to the middle and lower classes when opposed to the upper crust of society?

I'm posting this here because I don't have enough points to visit the Money, Power, Blah-blah forum: My question has to do with the notion of Justice and I'm using the names David and Goliath for illustrative purposes.

Being eaten alive by blue crabs. Having my throat cut while I slept. Being unable to see straight. My grandfather saws my grandmother in half with a tablesaw and displays no sign of emotion.
