Brendan Kelly Updates Blog

Posted by - 12:28 PM on 12/17/12
Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms) has updated his blog talking a little about mental health and our nation's current problems.
From the Blog The funny thing is, here in America, we’ve closed down all the supercomputer repair shops except for the ones that are located inside jails. Beyond that, because these computers are SO powerful, we, as a nation have decided to be very, very afraid of people with malfunctioning computers to the point where we stigmatize and marginalize them. Consider that.

Always enjoy his writing. Smart dude. He gets it. We've several big issues that we need to deal with. Mental health is obviously the biggest concern. Access to ridiculous weaponry that can do this much damage is another.

One thing that I don't think you'll hear much about is nutrition. What we put in our bodies does effect us in a variety of different ways. There's a correlation between diet and autoimmune immune diseases like autism. We really need to do educate ourselves more on the issue and do something about the amount of nutrition-less, processed garbage that we as a country consume. Eat clean!

Only Brendan Kelly could write such a well thought out post that still manages to compare kids to penises...

Couldn't disagree more. Treating the mentally ill is secondary to drawing a line between variation and illness. Standing out from the population average on a certain personality attribute doesn't (or at least shouldn't) make you mentally ill. Unfortunately, that is what a lot of diagnoses are based on.
