You don’t want to incur the judge’s wrath, right?
You want the court to think well of you.
So your plan is not to make any waves.
You won’t make bold claims. You won’t take unpopular stands.
You won’t raise objections for fear of appearing unpleasant. You won’t correct errors for fear of embarrassing the judge and suffering retaliation.
You believe and hope that the court will reward you for being submissive, unassertive, pliant, and docile.
And that’s tragic.
Not just tragic. Stupid tragic.
Expect the court to reward you for being a doormat and the system will chew you up and spit you out.
Now don’t be a pest. Don’t make an ass of yourself.
But nothing ventured, nothing gained. Success is meaningless without the risk of failure.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Do what the fearful person does and you’ll get (and deserve) what the fearful person gets.
