“ WHY DON'T YOU SUE THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE FOR ALL OF THE MONEY IN THE WORLD?”
How would someone go about suing the “entire” human race for all of the money in the world? Is such a cause of action possible? Where could someone sue? Who would we sue? What parties would be named? How would we establish damages?
These are the same questions that must be asked and answered before even a simple Civil Racketeering sue can be brought against a single party.
This is how I would answer the question.
We sue in the Hague with a “class” action lawsuit, under a legal theory that the all the governments in the world that are party of the treaty that gives the International Court in the Hague Jurisdiction over “crimes against humanity suits” have at time throughout their history committed “crimes against humanity” crimes against their own populations. Some type of compensation should be provided to the descendants of victims of crimes against humanity. In the case of slavery for example we demand consideration for the coerced and uncompensated labor their ancestors performed over several centuries. We demand compensation from the governments for their crimes against humanity equal to all the money in the world, and of course we would be willing to settle the case for ½ of what we are asking for. After we got our judgment from the International Court in the Hague, we would then go after all of the governments that are not part of the International Treaty that gives the Court in the Hague their jurisdiction, like the U.S. And others. We may not end up with all the money in the world but we would be happy with 10% of all the money in the world. After all we do not want to be accused of being greedy!
