Dear Gerry Spence,

We very much enjoyed reading your book, With Justice For None—your title is right on the mark.  But, there is more that needs to be said about the Roman and English Common Law which the European-Americans have imported here.  From my Aboriginal Indigenous perspective, what’s usually mis-named “American Law” and “Indian Law” benefits (as designed) only the elite of the group which brought that form of foreign law here, and rips off everyone else (with rare exceptions).  From outside the Western paradigm, from my Peoples’ point of view, the so-called legal system looks very different than it does from within that system, especially since insiders’ views are colored by abstract concep­tions of how the Law is “supposed to be.”  To me, the entire structure is illegal and doesn’t belong here.

Enclosed is a copy of my book, We Have The Right To Exist, which we hope you find of interest.
