Survivors Need Our Own Media

Originally posted on chrusp:

Survivors* have a complicated relationship to the Mad in America blog site.  Many of us blog there and the subject matter is of vital interest as it concerns our lived experience, but the site is not survivor-controlled and it is not meant to be accountable to us.  Rather the stated intention is to create a broadly inclusive conversation among people who question practices of the existing mental health system from the general direction of questioning the medical model and questioning coercion.  If MIA wants to try and resolve issues raised by survivors about how the site functions, that is a great conversation to have.

But there is something bigger that the criticisms of MIA by survivors point to, and that I realized when looking into current issues in feminism.  Other social justice movements have a whole world of blogs that network to each other, repost each others’ blogs, do all sorts of…

How to Get Money If You’re Poor, How to Get Soul if You’re Rich | Chaya Grossberg

Due to inequality in the world, if you have a lot of money and resources, others have parts of your soul. If you don’t have money, property or assets, you have parts of other people’s souls they need to pay you for.

Same with health. If you are very healthy, people who are sick have parts of your soul you can retrieve by helping them. If you are sick, you have parts of healthy people that they need and can get by helping you, healing you.
