We have to recognize that sometimes the community (by means of laws)
protects you and others from yourself.  This is because it was
realized that people are often under external pressure can not always
make voluntary decisions independently, and then are bound to hurt
themselves or a higher value in the community.  There are some rights
that you are not allowed to alienate.

I am not saying that this is necessarily the case here.  But if you
are looking for analogies in the real world, then I think you will
find examples both ways.  That suggests that we need to find out more
about the actual consequences of the policies you propose in the real
world before we can commit to their application.

That doesn't make the loss of control any less real for the duration
it happened, with all its consequences for the actors involved (which
may very well be irreversible and thus permanent).
