Covid – anxiety – depression – panic attacks and sociophobia. Pop culture, hip-hop, global pharmaceutical market. Mind numbing, slowing down, or getting out of depressive states. Xanax as a dopamine accelerator, tranquilizing pharmaceuticals as a hyperobject. We don’t want to speed up anymore, we want to slow down and at least for a moment forget about the reality that is too oppressive, literally turn it off. The “pill solution” infection as a result of society’s pressure on humans. Without anti-anxiety drugs, the entire western economy would probably collapse today. A global meme, a helper, a relaxer and sometimes a road to hell.
“I’ll slip in five Xanax and pray I wake up and forget.”
