Itís amazing to me that people (myself included) struggle giving their total life to Christ, yet have no problem giving their total life to Mammon.

Mammon covers a lot of bases.  Money, sex, sloth, video games, etc.

It is not that amazing.

No.

Law firms like DLA Piper only take top top students who are at top, top law schools. Im talking like the top 30% at Harvard or the top 5% at Fordham (a lot of that depends on the office too - New York is harder than Philly for example). From there those who manage to get in the doors are worked to death in a Darwinistic competition - probably more than 100 hours a week (85 at a minimum) and if you arenít Partner by 7 years in they fire you no matter what your work product is. They also dictate your life - you are on all call and if you need to be in the office on Sunday then you will be in the office on Sunday. In the Early 2000s (outcry caused them to change) they set strict times when employees were allowed to use the restroom.

Most who get in the doors - like 70% - work there for five years and use it as a leap pad to a cozy corporate counsel position at some other company. Only truly depraved individuals, at some level, stay to become partner.

Top it all off, DLA is the firm that funded Obama, Clinton, and Joeís campaign in large part.

Itís also a recent thing - law has always been a jealous mistress but it only became nightmarishly dystopian in the 90s due to technology.

That is a tiny number of people who work and live like that.

Yeah - heavy is the crown - but thatís what happens when your culture kills God.

Be thankful you donít get to work for people like that.

Also not all of them are evil - some are tremendous individuals - most get there by using oil on the gears.
