The pretense for the movie was, that we that we are better off not to feel, we can inoculate ourselves from feelings, apathy is the cure. A world where emotion would be a crime, all things that evoke emotion be banned.... Supposedly a peaceful society.... A society with no colour....A society with no passion....A society with no fervour.....A society with no drive, other than to survive as a race.
I have another question...to the self acclaimed sociopaths among us, aren't most of you living a lie? Unless you will admit to much deeper psychopathic leanings. You say that you suffer from simple apathy, so how can you gain pleasure from anything, let alone tormenting others - your words not mine? You all write interesting blogs about sociopathism, however, according to yourselves, you "seem" to experience pleasure from your deviant activities..... Isn't this a juxtaposition from what you call yourselves? If you cant experience "feelings" about a kitten, how can you experience "feelings" about sadism (pleasurable or otherwise). You make an unfortunate connection regarding sociopathy and nastiness. This is your biggest faux-pas. Being a sociopath isn't a fashion accessory, nor is it an excuse to be an asshole. Dexter is cool, but none of you truly appreciate the fiction here. Sociopathy is merely a differential in society, much like left handedness, or dyslexia. It is not sadism by default.
