What if mind-numbing psychiatric drugs make matters worse by threatening creative mental responses?
Even though I love technology, I don’t want technology to control everything I do. And by carrying a portable communications device 24/7 you’re letting technology control your life.
Folks, if you want to see how the state collapses in the future, this is the direction to look. It won’t happen through politics. It won’t happen by top-down reform. It won’t happen even through seminars. It will happen through the trial and error of entrepreneurship, because the market will not sit still.

People talk like capitalism is some strange foreign invader, a mechanical system that was imposed on the world a couple hundred years ago, fueled by burning coal and emitting smoke, and certainly not anything organic to the social order. This is preposterous.

Child Protective Services, a tank, a SWAT team, a mother, and a 10 hour siege. Nope, the story doesn’t end there. It gets worse. Controversial anti-psychotic drugs, a 13 year old girl, sexual assault under state care at a paediatric psychiatric facility, rubber-stamping a judge’s signature, and constitutional law. Nope, the story isn’t finished. Just when you thought it had a happy ending, you find out about the sexually transmitted infection (STI).
