B) As I was scrolling through my Times mobile app, I fond it irresistible to read an article about a pill that can make people more compassionate. According to the article their was a study from UC Berkeley that indicates that by single dopamine pill can alter chemical brain function that can make people more compassionated. The study consist of two groups that were given different pills, however, the group that had the dopamine show more companion than those who had placebo. It also indicated that those who had dopamine were more likely to share the money equitably. I found this article to be very interesting, giving the fact that as a society sometimes companionship is lack, however I don't believe that a pill should make you feel more companion. It is also scary to know that if you are taking the pill you are not in all your natural senses and the decision you make while in the pill can have a counterproductive effect. As it was stated in the article people who had the pill were more likely to share their money then those who didn't. I don't think that making sharing your money while you have drugs in your system is the best idea. What do you think?
