People tend to have a rosy view of the mental health industry -- until they are subjected to involuntary civil commitment (an euphemism for forced incarceration at some locked-down psych facility) merely for some minor self-harm or some vague suggestion of suicidal ideation.
After being processed like some damaged good on the assembly line at said facility, they come out -- if they ever manage to come out -- with their view completely changed, for this is one area where coercion and deception are standard industry practices....
And depriving someone of their essential liberty is as easy as filling out a form, whose veracity no one will bother to verify -- all done in the name of "protecting" the incarcerated. Never mind such experience only traumatizes the incarcerated...
And leaves a permanent mark like a scarlet letter on their medical record, with serious ramifications for their career prospect, among other things. Moreover, their 2nd Amendment right is suspended for the rest of their life, effectively rendering them a 2nd-class citizen.
Amazingly, "human rights watch groups" like the @ACLU pretty much just turn a blind eye to these State-sanctioned human rights abuses, indicating the political -- as opposed to humanitarian -- nature of such groups.
