Look, I know they're enjoyable to watch, even a form of art if you please, but having a zoo for them would simply encourage too many people that mental patients are a normal thing in our society, and that they shouldn't be wiped. We need to hide the mental patients, lock them up, give them a bit of the old ultra-violence, teach them what's what. We can't have them parading around in a zoo for all to see.

But that's where you're wrong! A zoo for mental patients would be great entertainment that the public could enjoy and it would provide a safe and fun environment for the whole family. Think of all those teenagers glued to their violent video games at home; something like this might just be able to pull them away and then their would be even less psychopaths and serial killers in future generations. Some of the mental patients' conditions might even improve through social communication rather than degenerate through years of isolation. There is a whole range of benefits that a zoo like this could provide, you just have to see past the stereo-typical fear of mental patients to realise the potential!

Mmm, yes I do see your point. I agree that it would encourage children to break away from their norms, and view the specimens. But that's the thing, why a zoo? Why not an amusement park or something like that, where their are various performers. They would get money out of it too. Some public beatings would also add to the flavour, and it wouldn't have to be behind bars.

Yes exactly, we need to think big here, and not limit ourself to a mere zoo. There could also be strip clubs and brothels incorporating mental patients as a medium for entertainment. The sky is the limit and mental patients are the future!

Great! So we could start with some brothels, maybe get some poles in there for some light entertainment, and then for some extra coin we could give the crowd some private dances. There are multitudes out there who would pay by the bucket load to see men with no legs scrawling upon the floor, and breastless women give them the old in-out. It's a common practice in television shows such as Game of Thrones, and like Joffrey, we can all be perverted and give these mental patients some action.
