Courts accept "Guilty", "Not Guilty", or "No Contest" as a response to an charge someone may be making to punish, or demand repaires, but if you pay close attention to your environment, you may see that not everyone will fall for the negative attention that is used to make your life difficult, and neither should you. Seek Professional Advice if you would like to do so, but it is our experience that whatever you think you've done wrong is much more likely to be God's expectation of you to help Him, than your own particular problem (though you may be best able to help Him with it).

The lack of assistance and abandonment we face may be due to defamation, slander or blame we're unaware of, but nothing gets done while there is still doubt about the matter. Punishment cannot be used on sick people, and that is what we believe is the problem. Even bad intentions are only a result of the disease resulting from the burning up sensation. Anger, and frustration resulting from the interference, or disruption to meeting our own goals. And, if we're brazen about the things we resent, others are much more likely to be able to manipulate us by using our anger. Please see: 12 Step Program Steps
Though we might not think we've lost our cool, the insanity that results from the perception of injustice may actually be used to deny our opportunities all together, and though we may actually have a valid case, the anger we feel about it may be used against us. Please see: Network Interference
Justice is a delicate and difficult goal to achieve, and the injustice in the world is so great, that for most of us in the United States, its preposterous to even consider ourselves to be victims. One recent global faith based system is very serious about this work. The Baha'i and The Universal House of Justice works through Faith and above and beyond Faith based systems and practices to achieve world peace and to overcome cultural, national and other prejudicial barriers.
The standards of Justice in our communities today to determine right and wrong, fair, and unfair are being revised by new cultural understandings based upon morality we've never used before. Legal Standards were set in this United States by application of The Ten Commandments, and most of our citizens were Christian. That is no longer the case, so we cannot rely upon the morality of Christian values to establish legal standards, or the Courts to abide by the morality of Christian Faith. The most common approach to injustice today, is to seek a higher court, and in most cases those efforts are found online like our work here today.
Try this yourself!
Its easy to see for yourself when you keep a log that not all your accusations ring true, and that may also be true of your accuser. Take a good look at your complaints. Let them sit for a few days, and then look at them again. Its easy to see that they form the basis of your suffering. Almost invariably, we find later that we had something to do with the injury ourselves, and that by trying to blame others, we made matters worse. Even if someone else is to blame, can we realistically expect them to change for us? How easy was it for you, for example, to quit using foul language, or to quit smoking? So many people fall into that trap I developed this Mission to try to help deal with it. It can be literally humiliating.
