Dr. Torrey does an exemplary job explaining how America arrived at its present condition: the mentally ill living on America's streets, instead of being properly cared for. The original deinstitutionalization thrust originated within the Kennedy Administration (as did the Internet, the NASA space program, which generated so many technological developments, proposals for land reform and workers' rights throughout the Americas, and so forth), but was later severely compromised. Once again, a scholar has pulled back the curtain on the historic revisionism meant to mislead us and shows us the truth.
