I can flatly state that every single regular visitor is suffering from a mental illness called Drapetomania.
Drapetomania is suffered by those who have an aversion to being slaves.
In the early 1850’s an American Physician coined this term to describe the mental state of runaway slaves and those who attempted to run away. Is was and still is a prime example of pseudopsycology, but start claiming to your friends and loved ones that you believe you might need therapy for your Drapetomania affliction and watch them become concerned.
Hell, it sounds so “official” you could probably get a day or two off from work to go to therapy.
By the way, “therapy” consists of hours and hours of range time. I doubt your healthcare insurance will cover it, but with ammo costs these days, it may be worth a try.
Especially since the universities are taking people like Sarah O. Conly quite seriously:
Against Autonomy: Justifying Coercive Paternalism
Against Autonomy is a defense of paternalistic laws; that is, laws that make you do things, or prevent you from doing things, for your own good. I argue that autonomy, or the freedom to act in accordance with your own decisions, is overrated—that the common high evaluation of the importance of autonomy is based on a belief that we are much more rational than we actually are. We now have lots of evidence from psychology and behavioral economics that we are often very bad at choosing effective means to our ends. In such cases, we need the help of others—and in particular, of government regulation—to keep us from going wrong.
My decisions are overrated because they differ from hers.
I’m going to need lots of therapy to recover from that paragraph.
