Am I crazy?
Exploiting a weakness in the brain?
Sara, thank you very much for your review. I think there could be many angles to see this from. I believe it's the corporations that are most responsible, though I agree that we need to protect ourselves from self-harm. I do not trust the government.
Somehow I couldn't write a return review. Thanks so much for your comments, Ms. Coslett. Maybe you're right, but those who are addicted are punished harshly, WAY beyond what could ever be necessary. Addictions that don't involve a drug, but say, a food product, affects only a person's health.
And thank you, Mr. Bowers, for your excellent and enlightening poem. Makes me look stupid, but I like that. :)

|Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.

|Actually the addiction is to the nanny state. If we didn't have the government safety net to rescue us from our abuses, we might take a little more responsibility in protecting our bodies from self-harm.
Still a great poem.
