labels oppress.

Postby Sam the man Leslie » Fri Jun 29, 2018 11:49 pm

Throughout our histories labels do nothing more than oppress and segregate us from our freedom of creativity!

If I bleed when cut, if I cry when sad, if invoke empathetic pain through a shared experience- then how am I labelled mentally undesirable and pumped with chemicals to make me understandable, tolerable to cohabitate within a small environment?

The mentally obscure are being persecuted for what?
Is it because of our ideologies are too futuristic, unrealistic, unchallenged or is it a threat to our survival? Because the human mind operates far beyond our comprehension- we treat phenomenon’s as a threat to comfort our rationality, if it can’t be rationalized then it must be studied under controlled circumstances: sedated if need be.

Does chaos live in the host or the environment we cohabit?
We are born with genitalia to reproduce- so genocide, abortion, homosexuality, suicide: go against the natural order of life, therefore what goes against the natural order must constitute as mental illness?
If we murder for profit, material or position; then why isn’t this apparent rationality given to the suffering?
Either put a bullet between a lunatic’s eyes or change the world we believe in- because I believe that chaos does not live in the mind, that it comes from the conjugation of sensitivity and malice, and labels do no more than subjugate and segregate us from our identical being.

Wow. A very philosophical view of labels.

The saddest part of it all is how mentally ill people label themselves.

Yup. And in my experience some labels don't even match whats actually happening.

Many men seek these labels or distinctions for themselves, do they not? It is true that if a man breaks a law or rule, he should underbear justices therefor; and if he seems skilless to men, then they may deem him sick. Nevertheless we speak here of things cloudy. Tell me of the men thereof you speak. It is true that in a land there where men of the law purpose themselves, or by the folk are therein set heart, that they will be chosen for their look, sound, and other things than their minds, which the folk heed not of, but hereof it seems that we even this with governance that may not be, thus it is somewhat idle. It is true, peradventure, that if a man breaks a law, then the little men that have sought might, and had it not by their minds, but by their looks, will tread him down, for they neither like unlike men nor rue on them. So this is yet wretched. I think most men so sore are, for certain, wretched; but may also be unwise, or their parents; or young. As in fights, he that is feebler shall be brought low. And on right it may be so that men are sore, for on their kin, or the unguilty, they may harm work. Thus I ask for cases of these men. Which men that unjustly pine are they?

For prudence sake: "it is worse to be pitied than scorned!"

For the sake of pride: "It only takes a good person to do nothing for evil to triumph."

For the grace of God there go I.
