It is a moral and ethical imperative for the mentally strong to defend the mentally impaired. I will die in it, if need be. I will give my life. There’s a man like that where I live, and they persecute him, because he says all the wrong things. What do people expect? You taunt or berate or physically harm someone for being sick. Expect *me*.
