… und wenn einem die Nerven verlassen dann bietet Aldous Huxley in seinem Buch „A Brave New World“ (deutsch: „Schöne Neue Welt„) eine Lösung:

„And if ever, by some unlucky chance, anything unpleasant should somehow happen, why, there’s always soma to give you a holiday from the facts. And there’s always soma to calm your anger, to reconcile you to your enemies, to make you patient and long-suffering.“ – A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley.
