To the Editor:
No State anywhere, ever has been as profligate in incarcerating citizens and non-citizens as the U.S. It is therefore worth considering that John Locke finds the States power to incarcerate rests on the individual's right to die. We need to consider not only whether forced feeding is conducted in a cruel manner, but also whether it should be done at all. I submit that it should not. Choosing death is the ultimate protest against unlawful detention. It is not for us to preclude that.
