What if there were a pill that made you more compassionate and more likely to give spare change to someone less fortunate? UC Berkeley scientists have taken a big step in that direction.
A new study by UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco researchers finds that giving a drug that changes the neurochemical balance in the prefrontal cortex of the brain causes a greater willingness to engage in prosocial behaviors, such as ensuring that resources are divided more equally.
OK. The mechanism is dopamine. Both cocaine and speed increase that dopamine. Thus cocaine and speed make you more socialist.
Or, as we should properly read this, socialists are drug addled.
