Overview

The Sanguinaires, Or What I Hate Most About Everything deals with death, depression, anxiety and the perpetual paranoia that plagues a fringe minority of diagnosed Sanguinaires, who find themselves resistant to their meds and violently in need of talking about the Event. Was it merely a psychological affliction, a collective mental illness, or perhaps a transcendent message that raises the question of free will vs. fate? These characters actively struggle against the Department of Psychological Welfare that has circumvented individual rights in order to protect society from their threatening philosophical/neurotic attitude. The Department ultimately diagnoses and thereby delegitimizes their paradoxical "neurosis" which they see as the leading cause for behavioural radicalization where, in reality, those "afflicted" are stuck somewhere between suicide and salvation.
