I watched “Equilibrium” last night, a movie depicting a dark, utopian world where people are devoid of feelings. No love. Therefore no pain. And no anger. Therefore no conflicts. Just one dose of a nifty drug a day removes them all. In the name of humanity, to ensure peace, of course. People live cruel, cold lives not realizing what they lost… Interesting, though rather shallow image of a society founded on fear of what feelings might bring.
