Mediate Don't Litigate©

Blessed are the Peacemakers, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven -- Matthew 5:7,9

"Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser in fees, expenses and waste of time." -- Abraham Lincoln (1808-1865)

"Litigation is a machine which you go into as a pig and come out as a sausage." -- Ambrose P. Bierce

The services of R. J. Tavel, J.D. are available for peacemaking purposes.

While the purpose of this link is to educate the general public about a vital alternative to government provided services, please note that:

THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO MEDIATION was 46 state Supreme Courts passing rules approving it. Making peace with our neighbors comes naturally enough to all of us, and learning to do so in an organized and fundamentally fair way should be acquired without any involvement from the State.

For centuries, Merchant Law controlled all disputes regarding commercial transactions, but the conquering King, wanting a taste of these fixings, created the fiction of offenses against the crown and appropriated the existing law as his own.

This sad state of affairs continues to this day. The consequence of our unwitting acquiescence to this affair is the perpetuation of the myth that, generally speaking, there are victims in our society. This is nothing more than 20th century superstition that makes us children of a parent-like government. Follow the links below and TAKE BACK YOUR GOVERNMENT!
