Achor's Credo

A Wild Party of Imagination

Fictions are as abundant as there are storytellers with their own fancy perspectives

A Wild Party of Imagination

So, here’s the dealio, folks. The rule of law is all about playing favorites. It’s got its jurisdictional game going on, which means it’s got some serious prejudice towards certain folks. Talk about being picky! This rule of law business only applies to the deceased, y’know, the ones six feet under. But hey, if you’re still among the living and happen to have diplomatic immunity, then it’s a whole different ball game. You get to enjoy the rule of grace, baby!

Now, hold your horses, ’cause things get even more interesting. The world of facts? Yeah, it’s fueled by the rule of grace. It’s like a power-up for reality. But when we dive into the world of fiction, that’s where the rule of law struts its stuff. Fictions are as abundant as there are storytellers with their own fancy perspectives. It’s like a wild party of imagination!

You see, using coping mechanisms to deal with trauma is totally valid. It’s a legit response to life’s curveballs. And those narratives born out of coping? Well, they’re as fictional as a unicorn riding a rainbow. The creative narrators behind them have the poetic license to do whatever the heck they want. And guess what? Those voices deserve to be heard, my friend. They’re the spice that heats up this world, prejudices and all.

Wherever prejudice thrives, problems tag along for the ride. It’s like a never-ending drama fest. But here’s the kicker: when vulnerability reigns supreme, the most unexpected things come knocking. They shed their problematic layers and status like a snake shedding its skin. It’s a bizarre show, my friend. And hey, even demons need a cozy environment to find some peace. It’s like they gather around a campfire of vulnerability and start singing Kumbaya, finding inner harmony among their warring personalities. Who would’ve thought?

Now, get this: the court of law can’t lay a finger on those with diplomatic immunity. Nope, not their jurisdiction. Instead, there’s another court in town, one that respects the trauma victims and their creative license. These folks have the God-given right to cope, and that means creating their own fictional worlds where they can let loose and be vulnerable. It’s like having a private party for their imagination, and the court of law has to be the bouncer, protecting that inalienable right.

So, in a nutshell, truth, as far as this ”unnatural court” is concerned, is giving every person the right to their coping mechanism. It’s about letting them build their own little safe haven where vulnerability is welcome. And darn it, that’s a right the court of law better protect, ’cause it’s a game-changer for everyone’s well-being and autonomy. Cheers to that!
