How does society influence and mold us? Is our social moral fabric nothing more than a thin curtain of denial behind which we are actually promoting drugs and alcohol to ourselves? Or is addiction an odd peculiarity within an otherwise moral and sane culture? Could society itself be, in its fundamental nature, addictive? If our Western, American, Judeo-Christian society were a person, could it be medically diagnosed as an addict? Leaving the question of individual addiction aside, are we all living in an overall collective addictive environment? If the whole of society could, like a patient, be taken to the doctor’s office, what symptoms might be observed? If we could put the entirety of western civilization on the psychiatrist’s couch as one large collective patient, might it result in a diagnosis of addiction?
