Charles you have assumed too much about me. I never said that people
should be strapped to beds or given drugs they don't consent to, although
I do think there are extreme situations where strapping someone down is
better (for them) than the alternative.
Also you're wrong suggesting that I "stigmatize, become a doctor over
night and tell those who tried that they are unworthy for whatever
I am not going to try to discuss this with you further but I felt the need
to clarify my position after you misrepresented me.
The video you linked was good but I think people should watch her TED talk
instead of the interview about the TED talk.
