Schizophrenia is often
idealised by the desire to
know the law of God and a
love for spiritual gifts, or the
hatred of money and power.
It’s a state of opposites, or
so it seems, as poverty is
compounded by the
philosophy of ‘saints’.
Yet nobody believes in
their badges of honour,
and their good names are
dragged into the dirt. But
could it be that although
they find it hard to win
the ‘golden ticket’ in life,
there’s no shame in being a
‘diamond in the rough?’
