In other words, Gartner is, by analogy with what Karl Kraus said of psychoanalysis, a cause of the disease he pretends to cure—to be fair, a minor cause or manifestation of it. Gartner believes that people who show instability, anger, paranoia, feelings of persecution, and cognitive confusion would and should be involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation. I suggest that he read Ward 6 by Chekhov, in which Dr. Ragin is committed to his own ward.
