Please take a look at Common Law (talk)[edit]

At least two of the folks that have been instrumental in managing the Common Law article are skeptical of the value of the "islamic law" section -- could you take a look and comment? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Boundlessly (talkcontribs) 22:41, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Involuntary Commitment[edit]

In the UK, there is the repressive Mental Health Act (1983) which is woefully disproportionate in its use to detain people with perfectly normal behaviours. The issue, as you correctly pointed out in the Talk Page, is that Mental Health 'arguments' or Involuntary Commitment is often used for political and sometimes social control. Let us not forget that Psychiatry has a history of detaining the poor and oppressed in society (Single Mothers, or unmarried women who committed the 'crime' of getting pregnant, and even homosexual Alan Turing had to visit a Psychiatrist to 'cure' his homosexuality). You are correct that Psychiatry, for at least a very significant proportion of those who are detained, is too easily misused and abused for 'Social Engineering' and Political control. This is true of Western governments as much as for the former USSR. So, yep, a modern day 'Witchhunt', especially as purely circumstantial evidence is used in lieu of actual evidence (sometimes, no evidence other than a Psychiatrist's supposedly 'Expert' Opinion is used. An analogy can be drawn between the Political Officers and Cadres of the Communist system in the USSR and the Political control opportunities of Psychiatry in the West - both achieve the same Political and 'Social Engineering' objectives in their respective societies. It is also worth noting that Psychiatry often has an aggressive atheistic bent, and this no doubt motivates The Mental Health Act in the UK and West in general. It is unfair, but allows totalitarian control of Western populations. One shudders to think what the future of such ideologies will bring to the West. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ASavantDude (talkcontribs) 16:56, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
