That's all well and good-but when "untreated crazy people" become a danger to themselves and others, then their right to remain untreated ends.
Under the same circumstances (and no others) that your right to remain untreated would end were you to become a danger to yourself and/or others, I presume?
If it were you, you'd have to actually do something? Or would the opinion of some people that in their excellent judgment you were likely to do something dangerous suffice?
And if you become dangerous, how shall we "treat" you?
