“An Englishman who was wrecked on a strange shore and wandering along the coast came to a gallows with a victim hanging on it, and fell on his knees and thanked God that he had at last beheld a sign of civilization.” (James A. Garfield)
Black humour, yes, but profoundly disturbing as well.  In his era, the Englishman had been taught/brainwashed by  the authorities to accept that hanging was a civilized way to handle what was very often a misdemeanour.   The choice of sentence could have been to hang or to receive a good tut-tutting, and it often depended upon the victim.  If the victim was a person of wealth and stature, then it stands to reason the perpetrator would be hanged.
Mentally, I file this definition of civilization under the same category  as rehabilitation as applied to today’s diseased person.  
At one time, sick people recuperated or convalesced.  Now according to a group of megalomaniacal brain-washers and self-elected “law-makers”, they are expected to rehabilitate along with murderers, rapists and thieves.  
Logically a sick person has to recover from his disease before he can “rehabilitate”, but the above mentioned  gang have promoted the concept that certain illnesses are crimes.  Commonly, the “offender” is sentenced to and  must engage in, graded exercise, and  adapt his thoughts and actions according to the  dictates of CBT.   If he cannot or will not do this, it is quite likely that the police will come to break down his front door so the men in white coats can take him away by force if necessary.    
The law which states that a person can only be sectioned if he is a danger to himself and/or others, has been swept aside by the above mentioned self-serving monsters masquerading as doctors.
Many will dismiss this as fanciful rubbish.  After all, we live in civilized societies where such things could never happen.  Unfortunately, they can and they do.
It happened to the recently deceased Sophia Mirza.
Sophia’s mother, Criona Wilson, recorded:  “In July, the professionals returned  -  as promised by the psychiatrist. The police ‘smashed down the door’ and Sophia was taken to a locked room within a locked ward of the local mental hospital. Despite the fact that she was bed-bound, she reported that she did not receive even basic nursing care, her temperature, pulse and blood pressure (which had been 80/60), were never taken.  Sophia told me that her bed was never made, that she was never washed, her pressure areas were never attended to and her room and bathroom were not cleaned.”
See the following for the full account.
The coroner’s report stated that Sophia died of renal failure arising out of CFS  -  the first time, as far as is known, that CFS (which we know as ME) was acknowledged as the primary cause of death.  
One might have assumed that those who conspired to destroy this young woman’s spirit and ultimately her life, would now have the grace  to button their lips and not heap any more hurt on her family and friends.  But they have no grace; no sensitivities; not even basic human decency.
Having subjected Sophia to the utmost cruelty,  they now attack the coroner’s report. Sophia did not die of CFS, they claim.  Her renal failure was self-inflicted through not drinking enough water.  
In collaboration with some of  the high ranking officers of a couple of the major British  ME charities who sold their members to the highest bidder,  the cabal within the healing and caring “we vow to do no harm” profession, have seen to it that the hanging corpse which represented civilization to the ship wrecked wanderer, still represents “civilization” to the ME community.
Food for thought:
“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these Ends, it is the Right of the People to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation, and organizing its Powers in such Form , as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”  (The Declaration of Independence.)
“You only have power over people as long as you don’t take everything away from them.  But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power -  he’s free again.”   (Alexander Solzhenistyn.)
