“If some doctors harm—torture rather than treat, murder the soul rather than minster the body—that is, in part, because society, through the state, asks them, and pays them, to do so.

But when will we see that the same things are happening in the so-called free societies? When will we recognize—and publicly identify—the medical criminals among us?” —Dr. Thomas Szasz, M.D.
