    I slit the throat of a maid.

    but the heart told me she would die horribly tomorrow if she lived. So it was a mercy.

    Well, yes. But the phrase comes from the Amerindians wanting their land back after they "sold" it. It's like how Gul Dukat didn't accept that he did anything wrong on Bajor.

    Man, people talk about how easy it is to get a prescription for X pill, and how we are living in a pharma zombie culture

    But umm

    I have a legitimate diagnosis of ADD, and I have been bounced between 3 doctors now getting a chain of refferals for someone willing to write a fucking adderall prescription. My wife has fibromyalgia, and for all intents and purposes if you listen to the anti pharma crowd, she would have been offered Oxy at her first appointment. She saw a neurologist for over a year before he even offered her an opiate (she didn't accept).

    So I really have trouble believing you can just "walk in" to most doctors and get whatever "candy" you want ( to use anti-pharmas terms).

    this is how trade frequently works in non-monetary societies: I give you a gift. Later, when I want something else from you, I go up to you and tell you fortunate you are for having such a thing, what a wonderful thing it is, etc., and you're supposed to give it to me.

    And if you don't, well, I'll just tell everyone else how selfish and grasping and ungrateful you are.

    As a rule this only works when we have to continue interacting with each other, and others, not when you grab your sword and come for what I have. Monetary trade tends to replace it. But it can reappear quite unpleasantly in modern societies:
    On a recent edition of the public radio show “The Story” (air date February 21, 2012), the interviewee, Kenan Trebincevic, a Bosnian Muslim, describes the relationship his family had with a neighbor woman, Petra, a Bosnian Serb. Muslims were being rounded up and placed in concentration camps, and Trebincevic’s family lived in fear. Petra would stop by for a visit, commenting to Trebincevic’s mother, “I like your rug,” or “That’s a pretty dress.” She would then invite the mother over for coffee, all the while talking about how nice the rug would look in her apartment or how good the dress would look on her. Within a context where Petra was known to have betrayed other Muslim residents to patrolling soldiers, Trebincevic says Petra’s message was very clear: “Either agree with what I’m asking you to do, or I’m going to turn you in.” His mother would dutifully fold up her rug or her dress or whatever other possession Petra had tacitly demanded, and give it to her neighbor when she went for coffee.

    I think the situation is radically different if you're a savvy drug user. Having worked as a pharmacy tech, I can say that most of the difficulty incurred by mechanisms designed to prevent drug abuse is felt by people with legitimate medical conditions.

    Hey - do not use that to imply the original was bad. It was a 90's action movie, but damn if it didn't deal with it's high concepts intelligently while people were getting murdered with mining drills.

    This is practically why The Matrix was a success - that movie successfully combined action and some interesting ideas into a compelling package. It's too bad they never made a sequel that continued that.
