  •  That's just it, isn't it? (5+ / 0-)

    If we all could afford to hire attorneys to go with us when we have any medical procedure, begin a job or purchase anything, then we'd all have a benefit of understanding what we sign take it or leave it.

    These contract clauses were designed to undermine those with inferior power - vacuum or no.

      if I recall my contracts classes in law school is that both parties do understand the contract.

      It is somewhat skewed towards treating both parties as equals, even though they really aren't.

      That's why unconsciousability which I've misspelled I think kinda requires something that "shocks the conscience."

      The clauses were designed to save the corps money. There obviously should be exceptions for behavior that violates EP (like racial/sexual discrimination).
