This is a pretty broad use of the 'the news.' Forbes basically operates the way the Huffington Post used to -- it's a self publishing platform, so just about anybody can become a 'columnist' there and post without any Forbes editors seeing the content.

But yeah, drugging the whole population so they suddenly become considerate of their neighbors isn't a great idea.

Really? I didn't know Forbes did that. They used to be a reputable financial news site.

In any case, I would think that WMU can't be pleased to see their name associated to such an idea. I'd hate to think we are headed for a dystopian future where government feels it reasonable to drug everyone to get them to behave as desired.
