Why We Are Doing It

My name is Dolly Sen, I am a writer, filmmaker, artist, performer and activist. I would like to bring section 136 into the world. Section 136 is basically a police power to remove madness from the streets, by detaining those acting in a way that is harmful to itself and others.

But my question is what is madness? We live in crazy-making times, and people are becoming more and more distressed because if it. Psychiatry would like to say it is to do with a broken brain. I say it’s to do with a broken heart. This society breaks our hearts again and again. Khrisnamuti said ‘It is no measure of sanity to be well-adjusted to a sick society.’ Section 136 is me standing up to this sick society using love, rage, art, and sheep.
