Crazy People is about the sad state of the mental health system in America and how it is unprepared to deal with a world that literally creates crazy. In fact, most of the things people take for granted as "normal" are the very things causing a vast epidemic of mental illness: twisted values that actively cause mass suffering, irrational belief in delusional apparitions and claims of moral authority from invisible gods, and a monetary system that crushes people in waves of hopelessness, anxiety, and rage or apathy at the political system that is rigged to support it. Furthermore, we are plagued with rampant child abuse, driven by irrational "rightness" and the drive to "correct" behavior it finds "wrong." And we are all subjected to the tyranny of out of control militarism and hero worship here and abroad, fear of human sexuality and of fear of anything new or strange that may upset the consistency people are used to. This fear of change, beyond everything else, is the greatest roadblock to a sane planet. And yet the only solution the American Psychiatric Association seems to have is to numb our brains with pills.Updated for 2020 with new information, confessions, corrections to typos and formatting errors, the 2020 version is still as relevant as it was when it was originally researched and written from 2014 to when it was published in 2016.Still relevant four years later, Crazy People exposes our systems of control for what they are: a veritable one-way ticket to the madhouse.
