>>And anyway, liberals have made it impossible to commit someone to an insanity ward. I drive all the time past the place where One Flew Over the Coocoos Nest was filmed. Its empty. All the nuts are wandering the streets now.
Worth saying again.
Also worth saying, on the other hand, I’m not sure I’d want it to be too easy to have someone committed. Leftists would use it against political enemies.
It is a tough thing all around.
Like the old Soviet Union? That’s one extreme, and letting dangerous or insane people loose among the rest of us is another. I like to think there is a middle ground.
Your point is excellent. It’s a slippery slope on both sides.
I know a man who had his first wife committed. There was nothing wrong with her other than that she wasn’t sufficiently “obedient.” He tried to do the same thing to his second wife, but didn’t get away with it. He’s now married to a third woman. I wonder how long before he tries to have her committed.
