One definition of "compulsion" is "an irresistible impulse to perform an irrational act." Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary; Immoral and criminal acts can probably be more frequently classified under this definition than as deliberate, premeditated control. One hears a great deal at present about emotional conflicts, especially in the minds of young people who are confused about values in today's world and who become victims of irrational, compulsive action.
Dr. Dana L. Farnsworth of the Harvard University Health Services, an expert on the subject, speaks of a "lack of impulse control" in many young people today, and he says, "More youngsters are giving vent to their feelings without thought of the consequence." He continues, "It's act now and think later."
