Currently being a sociopath isnt even considered a treatable condition from what I have read.
On the other hand, if you are deemed too sensitive -you are considered ill and there are lots of drugs available for it.
It sounds like the segregated alien scenario in South Africa (with no outside interference) from District 9 to me--to buy into it you have to ignore a lot of things about human nature and history we observe. The story doesnt sound very well thought--thus its easy to see it as a class struggle storyline because so far there isnt much character complexity being mentioned other than what ties into the class issue.


To be fair, it's very hard to talk about Character Complexity without divulging spoilers... which have already occurred somewhat in that interview.

This whole thing about hating rich people and lumping them all together in the same pot as the crooks/bankers etc... needs to stop. Its not right


It's a big stretch to say people who want a more balanced society somehow don't believe that those who strive for more shouldn't be rewarded.

While there's such a thing as male and female bad guys, they already have the technology to make their own army of stone cold killers.
