Decisio Medici

The doctor sat contemplating the notes taken by his assistant and those already there. He had to read them through before adding two decisions and a signature:

Diagnosis

Ordination

NotesBelieves she is Susan Pevensie, Queen of Narnia, of a children's book.

Unduly defends adolescent mothers against abortion being imposed.

Shoots at policemen with arrows. No sense of guilt or compassion. Dangerous.

Is naïve to the extreme about evolution and malthusianism.

Thinks evolution, when explained, is stinking with corruption. Morbid. Still considers herself an atheist. Illogical.

Fits of paranoid discomfort in presence of her helpers.

Considers malthusianism and progress fuddled and has a childish immature faith in rural restoration. No sense of reality at all.

Signed


He nodded as he found the résumé of the interview correct and as he, without verifying himself, had no doubt about whoever had said she took herself for a Queen of Narnia. Then he added a diagnosis:

DiagnosisSchizophrenia? Might be though somewhat untypical.

And here was his decision and signature to it as well:

DiagnosisSchizophrenia? Might be though somewhat untypical.

OrdinationMust be confined for at least a week. If better, must have a new trial, as guilty. If not ...

SignedPeter Sorner, Dr. Med. Psych. Spec.


If you have read a book called The Silver Chair, you may well recall that Spotty Sorner was one of the Gang that the others referred to as "They". His name was Peter and he made a carreer in psychiatry. People who like bullying do not get to bully quite freely and openly, fortunately, unless they are guards and bully poor beggars, which was not yet the case as much and which is hardert work and less well paid anyway. So, they say they are just helping the bullied person if they can. And if they are psychiatrists they can get away with that. Later, when he was ousted from English psychiatry, he went over to Sweden and continued his criminal activity over there. With the blessing of the state and policemen.
