It remains deeply funny to me how much the pro-coercion crowd refuses (perhaps out of wish fulfillment) to acknowledge that their main opponents aren't all Szasz-ians.
It makes a certain amount of sense - much of Szasz's views are nonsensical in light of modern science. It's always easier to fight against an incompetent enemy.
But you don't have to believe mental illness isn't real to believe that HIPAA privacy rights should be maintained or that we shouldn't be making it easier to commit people against their will.
Someday, these people are going to have to wrestle with the fact that there are plenty of people who agree that serious mental illness usually has a neurological basis and can be helped by pharmacology but still don't think we should be expanding coercion.
