FAE observes the changes.
RA changes the observations.

Testable psychology relies on generalizing to some degree - whether we're thinking through randomized samples or surveys. It also allows the general public to use psychological "effects" or "phenomena" to govern their behavior. Yes, the Stanley Milgram experiments (shock my filthy item daddyistration) were terrifying and horrifying, but do you know how we can prevent this result from happening? By not consenting mindlessly, questioning authority, and taking responsibility for our own actions. There may be a link between unemployment and heroin abuse but I think it has more to do with an unfortunate acceptance of an external locus of control. A good example would be the skyrocket in drug abuse during the Great Depression, when the entire world's economy was going to shit and the world seemed like it was taking a downward spiral into the ground. This same Depression led to Hitler's rise to power, which the people of Germany actually consented to (despite his craziness) because he said he'd fix Germany (which he then he did). He took responsibility.
Then again, this is simply an ideology that I base my own life around. The world can be explained in billions of different ways and no one has a wrong idea about it. I respect your opinion, though I can't say I agree with it.

tl;dr - If we believe we have control over our lives, we may discover we do. It works for me, but it might not for you. And that's okay.

Okay that seems like an interesting position. Correct me if i'm wrong - surely it is just an assumption though?

FAE is testable psychology. I think you are right for some cases and the RA does have some weight in our future but it still ignores varying factors. There's many different reasons people turn to drugs - Nature, nurture and environmental factors are all important.

There's a link to heroin use and unemployment and poverty, particularly in my country (Scotland) and parts of Russia.

I will also add Peter Jackson's early work.


Braindead, Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles are splatter films that are quite disturbing but are also darkly funny.

Meet the feebles is especially good, it's just so fucked up but funny. The look of the cheap puppets makes it pretty creepy.

Ironic how this guy managed to direct some of the most expensive films ever.
