Once upon a time, villages had a specific narrative, identifiable, accepted, the mythology of its unique character. If you came from Village-X, you knew the narrative — the story of your group, where you came from, what gods controlled the universe, who fought bravely, how you came about. A stranger from another village had a different narrative; it was called Village-Y-narrative. They had strange ways.
In today’s society, the village narrative has all but disappeared. Not only has it disappeared — but even within the fractionalization, there are further micro-fractures, where no one can agree even upon the most fundamental of core beliefs. That is when empathy disappears, replaced by laws and statutes to maintain some semblance of order and structure.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition no longer allows for the Federal or Postal employee to perform all of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal job, the village narrative of working as a “team” with the Federal Agency or Postal Unit can no longer remain compatible.
