Would You Take The Soma?

Recently a friend asked me "if they really had soma would you take it?" In reference to the soma from Huxley's Brave New World. I didn't answer, nor did he.

So I thought about it and began to wonder. And to be honest I think I would take it, it would be the easy thing to do. To live a care free lifestyle with no fear, even if it is just chemically induced happiness. I would think that it would be an easy way for the elites to take over, but being on soma I don't think that I would care. Just in my blissful little euphoria.

Keeping in mind all the alcohol, nicotine, illegal substances and drug (prescribed or not) ussage around the world I had a feeling that I'm not the only one to feel this way. I would like to know if people would/wouldn't take it and why?

a soma holiday sounded pretty cool to me. Not sure about all the other things that come a long with a Brave New world.

Yeah, storyline aside if the government handed out soma on a daily basis would you take it? And more importantly, what are your reasons?

very nice idea. Would you take the red pill, in case there is no blue pill anymore? Would you choose happy numbness over painful seeking?

I really can't answer that, i just don't know to what actions would drive me a scenario as brave new world. Nevertheless, the idea to give up the fight makes me crumble inside and i hope no one will ever invent a free of charge dream world soma pill.

I would take it. I dont drink alcohol so a little soma every night might be a good thing. Helps you relax, takes away your stresses, cant be bad

Isn`t Soma an actual substance ? The fungi Amanita muscaria .

Curiously , it is not filtered out by passing through the human body . So the urine of somebody inebriated on soma is full strength .

Thus leading the poor thrill-seekers of Europe once upon a time,to collect the urine of the wealthy Soma drinkers in all manner of en genius ways .....

Rough night out ?

yes.


Am i talking the piss ?

No.
