From Statist to Anarchist: A Metamorphoses Through Healing

From Statist to Anarchist: A Metamorphoses Through Healing

To become an anarchist one must undergo self-therapy. Anarchists must relive past traumas and examine their histories. This is how they morph into freedom advocates. One cannot just suddenly claim they are an anarchist, mention they studied Rothbard or  Spooner, and then hatch from the egg of Statism. Being an anarchist involves experience and knowledge…

phase

Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. -Carl Jung There are people who thought anarchism was just a “phase” that I would grow out of; they saw my “beliefs” as a way to lash out. They thought I was…

Letter to Ross: Thank you for Spurring my Recovery

letter

Healing Madness with Communication, Conversation, and Love

HEALING MADNESS WITH COMMUNICATION, CONVERSATION, AND LOVE

  Does anyone believe schizophrenia (madness) can be “cured” with conversation only—with words and human connection alone? Most modern psychiatrists deny that this is possible. They claim that schizophrenia is a permanent brain disease. But a new form of therapy is challenging that old perspective.
