Surely the problem with the clipping isn't the loaded gun or the stern stoicism - it's the daft Prime Directive. Of course you should edit someone back to sanity, by force if necessary. I could play rhetorical tricks and argue from incapacity, but I won't even do that. Saving people is just obviously the right thing to do.
