In one of the most seminal dystopian novels, Aldous Huxley imagines a bleak future in which the population is segmented and conditioned from artificial conception to grave. The linchpin of this society is the drug “soma,” which lulls the user into a euphoric, pliable, and suggestive state.
In this Thoughtcrime Thursdays edition of the show, we discuss the proper role of hallucinogenics and other drugs within society. In doing so, we rely on the work of Aldous Huxley and Graham Hancock to frame the issue.
