Isn't it Obvious?

Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations, Book 3, chapter 2:
The proprietors of land were anciently the legislators of every part of Europe. The laws relating to land, therefore, were all calculated for what they supposed the interest of the proprietor.

Let wealthy men make law, and the law serves wealthy men.

Put lawyers in Congress, and they make laws no one can read.
