I think the issue of psychosurgery and state-sanctioned medical practices against communities and individuals is a very important topic.People should read the above wiki-article concerning lobotomies. It gave some very disturbing details on the afflictions of Rosemary Kennedy--who instead of having been mentally handicapped as I previously thought, according to this, was instead given a lobotomy by her father, Joseph Kennedy to control her mood swings. This area is a critical and tumultuous area where the personal and the political collide. People need to be aware of these issues and how they have affected individuals and populations.
