Don B, 2/15/2012 - 12:29pm "In one of the Startrek series episodes, the crew is having some R&R on a new planet. While shopping in an open air market, the former Maquis rebel gets jostled by a native of the planet. Being a disciplined member of a starship crew, and all-round decent person, she does not indulge in a sudden urge to punch the guy out. She then finds to her unpleasant surprise that the thoughts of everyone on the planet are monitored, and that is a crime punishable by death to have a violent impulse. I know how she felt and second that emotion.
Now, this kind of power over thought might seem like a Mental Heath Court’s or Department of Mental Health facility’s moist dream. But I can assure you from personal experience that they are not interested in imposing physical death. They are quite happy with crushing independent thought, and ruining a person’s life with a permanent official label of potential violence.
Why will Police not investigate, the District Attorney and “mental health professionals” not believe, or a Court not hear the witness and claims of someone with a mental illness? Because bigots are their own proof. "
