Subject: [S-ACC] actual social change

Date: Wed 05/07/14 05:31 PM



I've been working at upgrading my social role so that I can be more meaningful in my activism. I'm coming to an insight - which I know a number of others here also live - that the place has been reached where my "madness" can be rendered in an actual social change capacity.

I've heard others speak strongly to moments of "actual social change" and I've performed so myself when I've been able, and when I've been able to transcend the stereotyping. What I see in the client/survivor movement is "frustration" as the conventional advocacies become more dysfunctional and get "ramped up" - I'm doing the "behavior upgrade" as are others working in a socially responsible frame, and I'd care to hear more about that.
