Then expect KASS right back in your face on this issue.
Edit - our posts crossed and you changed your "Yes it is." to "That's true."
?????? (If that's the case, I will change mine, but I don't understand yet.)
Let's make something clear. The Oprah/Jerry Springer style therapeutic culture does exist - it does a tremendous disservice to addiction recovery - and it is not what I am talking about. Serious specialized medical and psycholoigical care (including some group treatments) for these issues do exist. They are what I defend.
You don't have to be concerned if a person drinks himself to death. No one is asking you to be either. My issue is merely to let those who do have such concern do their jobs and get the loudmouth know-nothings out of their way.
There is nothing to be gained from ignoring facts - especially in denying the existence of them.
Also, once again, I do not support, not even obliquely, pedophilia - especially not the acts committed by pedophiles. I support medical attention for those with this problem who seek it - not your bullet in the brain solution, which violates the right to life.
(As an aside - I wonder about the many people this addiction/alcoholism "disease" issue touches a deep nerve in - I wonder if they like to drink or use drugs and think I support taking their candy away. LOLOLOL... I have no interest in them, really - let them enjoy. Personally, I can't anymore. My issue is those who are sick and how to help them get better from an Objectivest viewpoint.)
