Disinformation is dangerous. Listen to experts

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Wow. Way to go from a reasonable premise to an absurd conclusion. It's like an Onion satire.

There was a novel, Afterparty by Daryl Gregory, that explores a little of what comes with that medication. Smile

Quote:
Does the good of covertly dosing the public with a drug that would change people’s behavior outweigh individuals’ autonomy to choose whether to participate? Does the good associated with wearing a mask outweigh an individual’s autonomy to not wear one?
And so the public, all dosed up watching TV... has that moment where Bruce Wayne decides he has to become Batman (The Dark Knight Returns issue 1)

Dispute: "moral medication grants badge level privileges" or "patriotic placebo"

Maybe your credit score goes down if you refuse.

Non sequitur.

Does the good of outlawing jaywalking outweigh an individual's autonomy to walk where s/he pleases? Does the good of declaring some goods and services private property outweigh an individual's autonomy to bogart said goods and services?

And so on.

Obviously, the rational calculus outweighs the immorality of mass murder because it’s science, that's cus why.

Of course you should say you think the right thoughts as part of being in a hive.

Red pill for Target and blue pill for Lowes. Brand loyalty in a bottle. Smile

Don't like to call it a hive? Call it ethos. Comes in red and blue. Smile
