psychodiversity

Various human rights enshrine psychodiversity in law:

interpretation


In Canada? these have been broadly interpreted by the Supreme Court of Canada? and have included for instance the right to keep wild garden?s, remain free regardless of the strangeness of one's ideas or even the apparent danger to one's own body - see homeless?, and the right to carry religious symbol?s even those others claim to find threatening.

trolling


Persons who assert such rights and extend them are often called trolls. While any democracy assumes there is some usefulness of trolling, e.g. Leader of the Opposition?, trolls are often accused of not "really" needing or asserting the rights but rather of pretending to need them so as to expand the latitude of action accorded certain groups or others like themselves. This however is impossible to distinguish from the way a political party works, altering laws to suit those of like mind, whether or not they affect persons in the party.

pushing psychodiversity too far?


Those who prefer psychodiversity to have a meaning only with respect to body? relationships and not words as such may prefer to use the term trollodiversity? to describe those who simply seek to let anonymous trolls say anything they want, and mostly just ignore it if it's not credible or isn't verifiable?. To put open politics in force, for instance, requires obvious troll names or explicit anonymity? and forbids use of real-seeming names that might appear to be even persistent pseudonyms.

However, this too relies ultimately on voluntary choices. Mandatory distinctions in the infrastructure of democracy could only make this distinction at great cost to political privacy?, while attaching body name?s to any opinion would remain easily subverted, e.g. by paying people who don't care about their own reputation to create accounts that others then use, or more likely by simply hacking? them and using them.

finding balances


Accordingly, the best way to balance psychodiversity with low tolerance for strange or unheard-of views or so-called "crazy talk" will likely remain combining the troll-friendly tactics with outreach? to demographics and psychographics not presently served, and supporting factions and credentials so that those of like mind can discover each other and form creative network?s and social networks.
