In relation to creating a law, as in euthanasia. Mindfulness in regard to the mental health act.
Only 3 years ago, psychiatrists insisted on labeling grief for 12 months or longer, to be deemed a psychiatric illness.
Under mental health act, a person deemed to be mentally ill and requiring treatment, can be forcibly removed from their home, incarcerated, medicated against their will either oral or intramuscular injection…. and even electro shock treatment.
And if you disagree, your opinion won’t matter.
The law in theory sounds ok. The law in practice is unreliable.
A psych nurse ticks a box. Yet he is no smarter than me. Doesn’t actually know me, has an extremely vague recognition of my life and yet, can enact the mental health law.
I would not even let than bloke wash my windscreen.
