by Christopher T Dabrowski
Translated by: Julia Mraczny
The building of the national courthouse. 5.1.2024—two days after the assassination of the President:
—If you knew that there would be an assassination attempt why did you not do anything to prevent misfortune?
—Your Honour, that wouldn’t make sense!
—I told you, I’m a clairvoyant!
—And that justifies your actions?
—So you preferred not to lose credibility as a clairvoyant to prevent murder?
—No, Your Honour.
—If I see the future as a fait accompli, I cannot change it in any way. I only see it, I cannot control it. Your Honour, the future is unchangeable.
