Resistance is a simple concept: power, unjust and immoral, is confronted and dismantled. The powerful are denied their right to hurt the less powerful. Domination is replaced by equity in a shift or substitution of institutions. That shift eventually forms new human relationships, both personally and across society.
Dear Sir: Yours of the 24th. asking ‘the best mode of obtaining a thorough knowledge of the law’ is received. The mode is very simple, though laborious, and tedious. It is only to get the books, and read, and study them carefully. Begin with Blackstone’s Commentaries, and after reading it carefully through, say twice, take up Chitty’s Pleading, Greenleaf’s Evidence, & Story’s Equity &c. in succession. Work, work, work, is the main thing.
No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable. It is but equity, besides, that they who feed, clothe and lodge the whole body of the people, should have such a share of the produce of their own labour as to be themselves tolerably well fed, clothed and lodged.
The rain is plentious but, by God’s decree,
Only a third is meant for you and me;
Two-thirds are taken by the growing things
Or vanish Heavenward on vapour’s wings:
Nor does it mathematically fall
With social equity on one and all.
The population’s habit is to grow
In every region where the water’s low:
Nature is blamed for failings that are Man’s,
And well-run rivers have to change their plans.
Considering LEGO’s considerable brand equity, you might expect that the company must have a marketing budget in the billions. Not so.

Private equity capital in each of those markets Europe and Asia – while those markets have very different characteristics – fills a niche where either strategic investors or the public markets don’t go, or don’t want to go for some particular reason. I think that’s going to continue to be the case going forward.
We weren’t getting a fair deal on the budget and I wasn’t going to have it. There’s a great strand of equity and fairness in the British people – this is our characteristic. There’s not a strand of equity and fairness in Europe – they’re out to get as much as they can. That’s one of those enormous differences. So I tackled it on that basis.
Nobody in my generation ever started out in private equity. We got there by accident. There was no private equity business – actually, the word didn’t even exist – when I started. I got there out of the purest of happenstance and so I think many people find what they really enjoy doing just in that way. So another piece of advice for you is: don’t worry too much about what you’re going to be doing when you get out of business school – life will come your way.
