The Lives They Left Behind

The only thing constant is change and some stories do not end as you expect. Everything that glitters is not gold. The saddest story every told, the saddest song ever sung in what could be called the blues. And so I find myself posting another post that found itself on this blog sometime a while ago in an attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind

I do not know what this is all about, but sometimes I find myself reading the newspapers just to find something to blah blog about. And this time a listing in the Village Voice seemed interesting. It's an exhibit about leftover baggage and the lives of psychiatric inmates that were left behind in a suitcase called "The Lives They Left Behind:Suitcases From a State Hospital Attic." I guess the title may be self explanatory. In the attic of one of the abandoned buildings of a State Psychiatric Hospital building, workers discovered a stack of suitcases that belonged to former patients. Their personal belongings, along with their medical records, has inspired a fascinating exhibition at the New York Public Library. And as being anti psychiatric state and anti psych cia trick association, this is an exhibit that I would be interesting in seeing. And just the idea that ones life can be condensed to a suitcase is a lot to comprehend to me. The pharmaceutical industry seems to be bigger than the war industry these days. Psychiatry Kills. Abolish forced psychiatric treatment. For all things human rights and alternatives to psychiatry and the mental death system, Support Coalition International is a great website to visit. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible. And what does this have to do with a No Police State.
