Does anyone else ever think of Soma, the drug given out by the state in Brave New World ?

I am curious if anyone else thinks of the drug in Brave New World when they see or hear "SOMA" relating to stuff about our 2 towns?

Yup. Every single time. Still like it better than MapSo though

Does anyone else ever think of Anthem, the dystopian novella that came out the same decade?


Dave

Yes.   And 2112, the Rush album based on it.


Roberto

I think of Sodosopa.  The City Part of Town.

I always remember the original meaning of the word. You should too!

 Yes, as well as the campy musical adaptation I saw about 5 years ago in NYC.

I think of South of Market in SF.
