They talk about a debriefing after actions and how that is supposed to minimize the trauma and make re integration into “normal” life easier. But when all you’ve been around for awhile is actions, and people who are aware and I understand and feel the pain and anger and speak the same language. What does a supposed debrief of, what works and what doesn’t work about an action, prepare you for the culture shock of returning to “normal” life with its routines? Its jobs, its school the mundaneness of people spending all their time at work or school then whatever extra they can find playing music; some form of electronics shit punk rock. But what’s your job or schooling matter if the air you breathe is full of “undisclosed” chemicals? Or the water in your tap at the radioactive, or the rivers, and creeks run black?
