(1) It was published in http://Phys.org  on the 10th August and originally, on the same day, in The Conversation.

The sub-heading is;

A psychoactive substance to make you act in everyone’s best interest?
(2) The premise of the article is that people who do not comply with covid rules should be drugged until they do comply.

Possibly one of the biggest eye wateringly colossal ironies I've ever seen is that this article has been written by a Bioethicist.
(3) From the outset, the article distorts the truth and ignores the facts.

It's dishonesty is staggering....


"COVID-19 is a collective risk. It threatens everyone, and we all must cooperate to lower the chance that the coronavirus harms any one individual".
(4) This opening sentence, to me, reveals the truth by deception.

What it's really saying is, I need to be in control of your life and I'm going to make you do as I say.


"It seems the problem of coronavirus defectors could be solved by moral enhancement:
(5) like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior. Could a psychoactive pill be the solution to the pandemic?"
(6) The idea of prescribing drugs to people to enforce some sort of crazy conformance is pretty bad right?

Well it gets worse;

"defectors who need moral enhancement are also the least likely to sign up for it. As some have argued, a solution would be to make moral enhancement
(7) compulsory or administer it secretly, perhaps via the water supply."

I knew things were bad, but seriously, this is almost a declaration of civil war...
