Think Again: Attorney Client Privileges

Today marks the first installment of the "Think Again" series. This series will feature ideas that sounded good when I wrote them down at 3 a.m. But upon morning review, each of these ideas only proved that I am the inveterate racist, barking misanthrope or cool-headed sociopath that I've always feared myself to be. Though I appear to be a hater of all things good at 3 a.m., this doesn't appear to bleed into my daytime life, so I'm not too worried about it.
 
Don't you think attorney client privileges have gotten out of hand? Today I will introduce a bill to the universe that will allow lawyers to be tortured in order to get info about their clients out of them. While it's true that torture is morally wrong, so is being a lawyer, so the two cancel each other out. Once the bill passes, anything that goes on between a lawyer and torture will be permissible; no holds barred.
