Writes Greg Privette:

Hi Lew,

I read the article about Alfie linked in the Political Theatre. I found this most interesting:

But the judge interjected and told the lawyer to ‘confine himself to the law’ and avoid ’emotive nonsense’, later adding: ‘I don’t need to be reminded we have a human being. You do not have the moral high ground in this court. It is treacherous terrain.’

Is sounds like the judge is saying anyone, other than him, believing they have moral high ground in the court would be dangerous. They are always most afraid of ideas because ideas can spread.
