No Longer Restrained By Reality

Post title-I heard it today whilst listening to a podcast.
Observe the obverse: the ladies holding signs in the picture above are completely understanding and in tune with the concrete Reality in which we live. They know it and live it.
So, what's with the "No longer restrained by reality?"
That would be those who feel that their emotions are Truth, that 'how they feel' is evidence of how things are.
That path leads to madness. Because if feelings define reality, then there is no core REALITY, as emotions are fluid, shortlived and often wrong.
Here's the example that you probably won't like.
Some of the most Life affirming, positive people, those who would march, protest, act as human shields  for Peace, who Live to end War...
have no problem with abortion.
If you are a dove who sees the killing of tiny humans as right and proper...
You are no longer restrained by reality.
The ladies pictured above get it. They understand that humanity is sacred, and to take human life,
no matter how old or the opposite of sacred. This is Reality.
