You all sound like the same sort of people that freak out any time a new technology is created. That's nonsense.
I don't mind most technological advances and I don't freak out over them. I just dislike certain ones that deal with the way I think. Also, you know I'm a very emotional person that loves to experience the full spectrum of my emotions, so you know why I don't like this one.  :-P

Oh dear, if this drug proves effective, people that would otherwise have divorced one another, will choose instead to remain together  in a mutually monogamous relationship. This in turn will naturally encourage them to procreate and spawn a string of children, a dire act that would continue to further strain the rapidly diminishing resources of a planet that is already afflicted by the scourge of morbid over-population.      :-o


I'm not being an alarmist now, am I?

Personally, I would love to be able to take a medication that prevented me from feeling love. Emotions are such an enormous waste of time, and love especially. It leads to people doing stupid things and doesn't really accomplish much but continue the human species, which is a bogus cause anyway.
Anyone here who's saying that it would take the "magic" out of love is a naive fool. There is no "magic" in love. It's just an electrical and chemical reaction in the brain that causes feelings of attachment to help solidify a bond to better help the production and rearing of a child. Nothing more.
Besides, think of all the wonderful things people could accomplish without feelings of love, or lust, or anything like that...
There would be so much time to do things without the need for romantic or sexual companionship. People could actually accomplish something, rather than simply give in to their perpetuation instinct. It would be magnificent!

My friend,while  a society of unfeeling human robots may appeal to you. that sounds lame and is hardly the breeding ground of creative ideas.
