You look up and see a thief. He is boldly walking up to your neighbor’s door. Maybe he intends to sneak through the back door. He is well known by many and by many names. You know either he intends to use guile to talk his way in or break into their house so he can steal a most prize possession from them.
You have heard and read stories where he has stolen from others before. Stories which tell of the emotional, mental, social and sometimes financial devastation left in his wake. You know that for some strange reason he has the law on his side. He legally has the right to steal.
What can you do? What will you do? Will you ignore the situation, because it is not your house and therefore not your problem, or will you try to help a neighbor? What will you do to help protect a decedent’s legacy and the sanity of their survivors from defaming the dead?
You could sign a petition which makes it illegal to defame the dead. A petition which if made law will give the survivors of a defamed decedent the right to address slander of the dead in a court of law. Give the decedent’s survivors the right to have the slanderer stand before the courts and prove what they say with evidence or recant any falsehoods and pay for damages.
