"I became depressed, physically ill and seriously suicidal after experiencing the insanity of litigation. I lost my home and was sent to the street with nothing but the clothes on my back. Literally everything I owned was gone for several years. I fought my fight to points of exhaustion where all I could do was stare into space. Friends had left; I was emotionally isolated and normal living activities were no longer normal. Rage doesn't come close to describing the feelings I lived with for years. Even this is far from the full story of how bad it got." -- The Founder Of Caught.net and The Pro Se Way
Litigation (Fighting the Legal System) Can Leave A Person Seriously Damaged.
In litigation, particularly protracted litigation, lives can be devastated, life savings wiped out, homes and families ruined and God only knows what else. Additionally many people, raised to believe in this country, will experience corruption in our legal system with judges, lawyers, prosecutors, police and sometimes even court staff that is shocking beyond belief. Attempts to get the corruption addressed or even recognized by authorities are met with deaf ears and complete ambivalence.
Black Becomes White, Up Becomes Down, Wrong Becomes Right And No One Cares.
The degree of insanity one can run into with litigation is beyond description. Litigation can leave you feeling like a person without a country, alone, filled with rage beyond words, depressed and even suicidal, homicidal or both. It can go on for years and you will wonder if you will ever feel normal again. You will wonder if you can ever feel good about your Country again. You can also get hysterical or physically ill just thinking about and reliving the legal abuse nightmare.
A couple of points from the Founder of these websites who knows all too well how badly one can be affected by Legal Abuse:
- Many times litigation is combined with changes in life that, in and of themselves, can cause stress, depression or worse.
- Add the expense, injustice and insanity of the legal system and you double the problems.
- Compound the above with the fact that many times help for the above is either non-existent, unaffordable, ineffective or, at best, hard to find.
- Add to that the fact most feel that the wrongs can never be made right and the war will never end
- Part of my recovery was accepting that corrupt, lying, thieving, completely callous people remain in positions of power without correction.
- Part of my recovery was realizing that my wrongdoers would absolutely dread having to litigate anything with me again because I gave them a serious run for their money.
- Part of my recovery was realizing I cost my wrongdoers a LOT of money - much more than they thought they would ever spend given the fight I gave them.
- Part of my recovery was realizing that ALL OF US tend towards abuse of power when we get it. The one most likely to abuse power is the one who thinks they are above doing so. It takes a short time to learn to exercise power, but a lifetime to learn how to avoid abusing it. That is true for YOU, ME and ALL current abusers of power. If you don't fully comprehend that you will go from being abused to being an abuser.
- A large part of my recovery was, and sometimes still is, bleeding. Bleeding mentally and emotionally and recovering physically...and I might add slowly. Some call it bleeding, others venting, processing, dealing with things or coming to terms with things. Whatever you call it, it will take time.
If enough people fought, wrongs would still be righted even with a system as corrupted as ours. Wrongdoers would stop committing wrong only because of the repeated cost of litigation, public exposure and embarrassment.
Also don't forget there are other, civil, legal and lawful ways to go after wrongdoers via various forms of protests.
