The people who want to control you,
The people who want you to starve,
The people who want you to breathe polluted air,
The people who want you to drink dirty water,
The people who want you to eat poison food,
The people who want you to be homeless,
The people who want to exploit you,
The people who want to own your body,
The people who want you to be sick,
The people who want to oppress you,
The people who want you to die…
The people who want you to have Guns.

We must be very careful how this discussion of mental illness progresses. We seem to be in a rush to assign illness to every individual in every circumstance such a PTSD to Autism. Certainly there are many valid cases of these illnesses, but there are also certainly many which are not.
