Quite literally, it did. Not only do few people have the means, but of those who do and happen to have been affected by the Family, how many have chosen to take on a struggle, with an incredibly belligerent organization, that consumes years of their lives? I know of nobody else.

Do you have any idea how hard that case was on that grandmother? I do.

I agree that the British case was a very good thing, but remember, it was not a public case and it takes a person to decide to do something like that who can actually go through with it. A less determined or poorer person might have succumbed to the war of attrition, the Family could have actually scored a "victory" (as is was they tried to claim they won the British case). And it was not in the third world. One reason it set precedent that was not set elsewhere is simply the British legal system.
