    I’m pretty sure the premise of UPL rules is that letting somebody outside the guild practice law would reduce the income of guild members. Hard to argue with that, really. There are a variety of pretexts behind these rules, but does anybody outside the lawyers’ guild have any reason to accept them? And does it really matter if the rest of us find them plausible, given the way the guild has captured control of the legal system from beginning to end, and doesn’t need anybody else’s permission to impose them?
