Hi

I wrote that "embracing activism does not fully reach to the inner souls of creative groups with strong advocacies against oppression," and that is so. My concern from the "pussy hat" experience where millions marched was where I saw that the perspective "mad lives matter" was - on an individual basis - fairly well received. Our advocacy that we are "persons" was marginalized in that situation, of course. However, I'm also led to think that people are getting ready now to entertain a deeper concern for madness, for recognition of our oppression under the present system.
