The FULL context of the quote:
"well, no... I (stutters)... I think it's good... because, uh, it's so clear that we are programmed, and, and, we're born to love and help each other, not to kill each other, not to destroy each other. That's an aberration, that's left over from, uh, hundreds of years ago. It's time for us to start acting, you know, in enlightenment,"

I hear they have medication for his problem.

I obviously do not know what to say to this...
But taking his statements as a product of his mental illness is a slight for other people dealing with problems.
I may say crazy $h!t, but Ted Turner takes the cake on this stand.
