The Government wants the mentally ill out, even though they don't want to go.
The Government has decided that mentally ill people are better off living in the "community," a utopian place that ideologues have successfully imposed as the universal solution to all "institutionalized" people--the mentally ill, developmentally challenged or otherwise disabled.
And so we read how The Government isn't happy about Illinois' progress in booting out the mentally ill, even though some don't want to move. "We've decided what's good for you, and you've got to go," The Government says.
As the Tribune story reports, "And state officials hadn't anticipated that so many patients would be unwilling to be assessed — or that so many would be deemed ineligible for community placement."
Oh, you mean that the facts got in the way?
