From “Does Capitalism Make Us Crazy? by Susan Rosenthal:
“There are two things we can do now. The first is, tell the truth.
Mental suffering is not a medical defect, but a protest against oppression. Attribution matters. It makes a huge difference to know that you are not crazy, that your suffering is a reasonable response to unreasonable conditions. We must validate the lived experience of oppression and place responsibility where it belongs, with the capitalist system and those who manage it.
Second, we need to demand that people be provided with solutions that work for them.”
