A little stability ~ updated

Symptoms of not caring, not giving a fuck, and being willing to do anything to put a stop to the wrongness inside...

Drugs stop rebellions. Quite literally, prozac saves the world. This world, at least. With fair certainty, we can guess what will replace "bread and circuses" in the history chapters for this epoch.

Update: which tells us what? That this isn't the way it's meant to be. That decency, justice, peace, happiness, whatever positive trope you like, is part of design, and that this deviation we're all playing in now is recognized as wrong even inside the dumbest of us.

The clean little secret about this place is that most of you are nice when you think it's the end. When you get to your own, remember that, and ask yourselves why.

  1. Chomsky once, talking out of his ass imo, but probably onto something, suggested that this is precisely one of the reasons the rum, sugar, and tobacco trade was so important - profitable, but also soft drugs for the proletariat to distract itself :).

    which begs the question how 'temporary' it is. This has been going on for centuries, and we will soon get better drugs. I'm off to smoke now.

  2. Who needs soft drugs, when the hard stuff is becoming practically mandatory?
