Surviving cancer & a car accident

From gofundme.com

We're here to raise money for Eric's partner, and their two children who are currently experiencing financial hardship. Life is already tough as a mother of two with her partner in prison, but she was also recently in a car accident, which thankfully left her in okay shape, but has left her care in unsafe conditions for long distance or highway driving. Even more recently she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, the severity and treatment of which is still being determined. Treatment for the pain alone will financially destabilize the family, on top of future specialists visit, car repairs, and potential unemployment (due to the chronic pain experienced).

TOTW: Therapy

Are most anarchists hostile to therapy, mainstream or otherwise? In Against the Logic of Submission (under the heading Revolt Not Therapy), Wolfi Landstreicher writes: “Freedom belongs to the individual — this is a basic anarchist principle — and as such resides in individual responsibility to oneself and in free association with others. Thus, there can be no obligations, no debts, only choices of how to act. The therapeutic approach to social problems is the very opposite of this.. Basing itself in the idea that we are crippled rather than chained, inherently weak rather than held down, it imposes an obligatory interdependence, a mutuality of incapacity, rather than a sharing of strengths and capabilities.”

It’s that time of the year again, when many in society are making new plans and resolutions for the coming year. While the anarchist may oft shun such silliness from society, some areas behind these ideas demand a closer examination. This TOTW is about anarchists relation to physical and mental health.
