Join us in officially welcoming Daniela Capistrano to The Icarus Project! She joined us in December 2014 to support Icarus organizers across the country. Icarus organizers provide peer support to those with complex mental health realities in a safe and accessible environment, but often face incredible challenges in their work. Daniela is helping our community meet those challenges.
Imagine if you were a german in nazi germany and you were open about wanting to help the gypsies who were being systematically demonized everywhere (as a pre-cursor to being rounded up and killed).

...Okay, case in point, how about the character Alan. Still living with his parents (BAD SLAVE! So WHY isn't that allowed, why are we not to think that through?? Because of Rollback Cult-ure, I say; Rollback Generations are SUPPOSED to be desensitized to each other as MUCH AS POSSIBLE, including escaping the love/dreams of our parents! How better to CONTROL society than having a fully atomized slave that BELIEVES in "The Way Things Are"?!), "obviously" off the DEEP END as far as all the holy cows that propaganda cult-ure pushes so much that many don't even see such any more! Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy tooooooooooooooo crayyyyyyy-z! And all his longtime buds can hardly tolerate him!
