I don't have a dog in this fight, I'm not a law blogger. Heck I'm hardly a gun blogger.
But having spent the day sick in bed reading about those who have been affected by Brett Kimberlin's lawfare attempts to silence those who mention his criminal past I find it ironic that Barbara Streisand is one of the donors to Brett Kimberlin's non-profits.
You see the "Streisand Effect" is when someone wants to keep information hidden, and because of their actions that information gets spread further and wider than if they had just shut the hell up.
Now, "Lawfare" is a term about getting what you want through a legal mechanism instead of traditional military violence. But make no mistake, lawfare is deadly serious business, backed by the full power and might of the jack booted thugs of the state. And while I'm not a lawyer, I might know something about warfare.
There are two common principles of warfare that apply here, in my humble opinion. 1. Dominate the terrain. 2. Don't make yourself a target (also known as don't make it easy for the snipers).
All conflicts exist in terms of Time and Space, which we call "terrain." In this terrain there are always things that are advantageous and disadvantageous in terms of occupying a portion of said terrain. Brett Kimberlin keeps losing in court because he never has the high ground, all of his suits for defamation fall flat because the comments "perjurer, terrorist, suspected murderer" are in fact demonstrably true. Truth is a good high ground to have, especially if you can prove it. If you can't prove that you are true, then the next best thing is to prove that the other guy is false. Brett Kimberlin has proven himself to be full of falsehood over repeated court cases.
But Brett Kimberlin has an advantage in lawfare in that he has nothing to lose. As long as he stays in the fight he can harass people and take their time and money. This strategy is the same as all terrorists, the good guys have to win every time, but the terrorist only has to get lucky once. Simply dominating the terrain doesn't guarantee you'll win, but it makes it most likely the other guy won't.
Now as to the second principle, don't make yourself a target... Brett Kimberlin has quite handily made himself a target.
I recommend that those being engaged in lawfare by Brett Kimberlin file a motion to have him committed. By now there is enough evidence in the public domain that Brett Kimberlin cannot determine truth from falsehood that a reasonable argument can be made for his involuntary commitment at a mental institution to provide the care he so desperately needs.
My final thought? I think that in a justice system so blind and bloated that Brett Kimberlin can get away with "lawfare" using frivolous filings and suits that it would be easier for the uninformed who doesn't know the legal terrain and would therefore be at a disadvantage, to simply "disappear" someone who attacked them as Brett Kimberlin has. The problem with violence? If it isn't solving your problem you just aren't using enough.
