Interesting description of a society based on behaviorist psychology.

It's interesting and not horribly-written for a doctor, but then you get to the end and realize he's propounding living in giant Brave New World type societies where everyone's behavior is rigorously controlled by doctors and science. Scary, damn behavioral psychologists.
