The government has a duty to protect certain people from themselves
Do you ever wonder what the world would look like if "survival of the fittest" was still reality?
A mentally sick person may be threatening to themselves and potentially others (speculation) and in that case; sure let's protect us by providing help. However. Thug on the street hurts himself daily with heroin--survival of the fittest.
"I'm from the Government; and I'm here to help" is probably the most feared phrase in the English language.
Really? Bc I think I'm going to fucking murder you and your family is a little scarier
Dkspartan, your comment goes to, protect "you from someone else" & not as in your poll question/scenario which is the govnm't protecting "you from yourself" or "certain people from themselves."
This is a great question! Tony should promote it
