If there’s any question that communism doesn’t work, one need look no further than China. Thanks to SAchin for sending this along. It’s a heartbreaking chronicle of overzealous mental health treatment–if indeed you can even call surfing the web a lot (ahem) a disease. Then again, it sounds like some of the people treated–one kid spent four straight days at an Internet cafe, not eating or drinking–need intervention of some kind, but is the so-called addiction really the problem? Or are they trying to escape from something larger? It’s maladaptive social behavior, to be sure, but it seems it would be best addressed in, oh, every other imaginable way possible before using ECT.
