1. A placebo is not a real medicine, but it works in many instances, therefore, it is real. Telling people it's not real may stop it from working, but why do that? Same with superstitions and lucky charms etc. If someone thinks they run faster wearing their lucky socks, then why try to prove them wrong?

2. Do we have the right to force our views on others, even if our views are correct and theirs are demonstrably wrong?

Having the truth available is fine, but I don't know that we should be forcing others to believe it.
