Lili's sad thought for the day

I find it amazing that the nation that gave us such a beautiful movie as Val Lewton's The Curse of the Cat People (don't be put off by the terrible title - it's a great film) is the same nation that now drugs and sometimes locks up children like Jani Schofield and her friend Briana. What went wrong during the last seventy-odd years? How can such wisdom be lost?

Involuntary commitment in the United States has become close to impossible since the 1970s and the anti-psychiatry movement. While it's done some good, it also means that lots of schizophrenics end up on the street.
