For example, "We need to remove your appendix: abdominal surgery. Would you like us to do that while you're concious? Or would you prefer General Anasthetic, so that you remember nothing?"
I'm astonished at the moral complexity presented in the last few episodes. I love that Sirkka's actions aren't accepted by some of the other characters. Fantastic writing.
In the case of the rape camp survivor - she was offered the choice and chose to forget.
If people *could* read my mind: would it be fair of me to tell them that they shouldn't: that they should instead surpress their ability? Even if their reading my mind doesn't hurt me? Wouldn't that be like saying to somebody, "Stop looking at me!"? I mean, if they're able to look, if they can see, they're allowed to. You are allowed, even expected, to read people's emotions in their face ... it's only a very minor leap, then, to read their emotions in their brain; and if I am thinking things that I don't want people to know about, that's *my* problem, not theirs.
Oh, and btw, I don't think the memories of rape should have been erased - people are who they are because of experiences they have come through - to take that away is to take away what they have crafted themselves as.
It may not seem fair to you that someone else can see your thoughts ... but your telling them what to think and what not to think, what to see and what to avert their sight from, would be you trying to control *their* thoughts.
