Evidence that humans, of the adult variety, are ridiculously and easily influenced.
The release of the film The Wolf of Wall Street, loosely based on a real person and therefore real events, including real Quaaludes, has resulted in Google searches for the sleeping pill going from almost none to out of control.
Scenes in the film show funny consequences of taking Quaaludes - and this is what people want? One wonders if they are searching for personal use or hoping to convince their friends to do the honors.
Quaaludes haven't been produced since 1984, when they were banned in America.
Disturbing that grown ups are so easily influenced. Seeing a film and then wanting to get your hands on some Quaaludes is the equivalent of seeing an advertisement once and feeling compelled to run out and buy that new peppermint deodorant.
Think then how easily children's thinking can be hijacked, distorted.
Think then how easily people can be convinced to believe something when a mass of others are telling them to. This is the simply basis for both ethical and unethical indoctrination, after all. It takes so little.
