I was a member of PIRG a while back. It was a great organization that was founded and operated by Ralph Nader. I always considered his public service in this area as being valuable. He is just a great guy.
Fast forward to the year 2013.
I now recognize that winning a few cases by well-meaning and charitable lawyers does not fix the overall problem of injustice.
The problem is the legal industry, which is a government sanctioned political arm of the voting majority. It is a mob that wrongly uses the guns of government to promote it's agenda, which includes ignoring the Bil of Rights when they do not fit their ideals.
As much as I commend him, there is one area that I do not agree with. Ralph Nader seems to promote the idea that a "good" version of big government is possible. He seems to believe that a "good" version of big government will result in "good" justice.
