Earth Folk - We Are Not Sick

new video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=up_-PftyriI


from Icarus Songs: http://earthfolk.bandcamp.com/album/icarus-songs

Welcome To Icarus: http://www.theicarusproject.net/

The Icarus Project envisions a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of 'mental illness' rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework.

We are a network of people living with and/or affected by experiences that are often diagnosed and labeled as psychiatric conditions. We believe these experiences are mad gifts needing cultivation and care, rather than diseases or disorders. By joining together as individuals and as a community, the intertwined threads of madness, creativity, and collaboration can inspire hope and transformation in an oppressive and damaged world. Participation in The Icarus Project helps us overcome alienation and tap into the true potential that lies between brilliance and madness.

"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery" ~Bob Marley

"I am proud to be maladjusted to an unjust society" ~ Dr. Martin Luther King

Another group doing a lot of good for mad pride is MindFreedom here: http://www.mindfreedom.org/

Thank you to all involved.

We are gifted, but somehow not always able to use our gifts because the American Educational System likes to shut us down.
One of the greatest blasphemies is the taking of one's freedom of thought, dictating matters of the heart and the theft of another's personal peace.


If I rot, I want to rot well and enjoy the small bits of life that are pleasant.
