The Invasion

In this movie, those who are infected by the virus no longer want to wage conflict with one another (although they are certainly aggressive towards those who are not yet infected). Would it be tempting to “inoculate” the citizens of Earth with a drug that would remove their emotions? What price do we pay for our human traits?

One of the characters in the movie feels violence and other primal instincts are what make people human. Do you think it is possible for personal freedom and a peaceful society to co-exist?

A man says of another man, who is of Russian decent, “He is a Russian. He needs to argue like he needs to breathe.” Are such generalities of a nation’s citizens fair or correct? What generality would you use to describe people from your country?
