I was referring to reprogramming those people currently deemed "incorigable"
or "beyond help", like chain murderers, the mentally ill, etc. I didn't mean
that anyone would have a carte blanche to reprogram anyone who doesn't think
in any particular way. What would you prefer to offer someone, jail,
execution, or just reprogramming of the violent / stupid / whatever part of
their brain? Personally, I think a violent person would thank you after the
reprogramming because they'd realize how much better life is when they aren't
so violent, and they didn't even need to become a vegetable as would occur in
a labotomy. :-) Shawn
