http://www.science20.com/countering_tackling_woo/narpaa_official_statement_judge_rotenberg_center-89507 If the violent electric shocks produce no long term effects and are as effective as reported on the Judge Rotenberg Center web site then would these employees be willing to submit to such “treatment” to improve their diet, decrease smoking, or correct their golf swing? Violence begets violence. These wise words have been offered by many including the great Martin Luther King. “The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.” I join those who challenge the Judge Rotenberg Center to immediately discontinue these acts of violence and explore humane ways to support and inspire personal growth.
